Can I Sue For Being Hit By a Drunk Driver in California?

Drunk driving injury lawyer, Bobby Thompson, helps victims receive the financial compensation they deserve in California. Below, Bobby provides some knowledge on the legal options available to people who have been hit by drunk drivers in California:

There are various legal options available for victims injured in drunk driving accidents. In all 50 states, people injured by drunk drivers may file personal injury lawsuits against the driver. In addition, California and some other states have dram shop laws that allow for lawsuits against alcohol vendors and social hosts under certain conditions.
