Legal Recourse For Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

Hit by drunk driver attorney, Mike Pfau, represents victims of drunk driving accidents and helps them receive the financial compensation they deserve. Below Bobby provides us with some of his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims:

In every state, victims injured by drunk drivers or family members of victims killed by drunk drivers are eligible for personal injury lawsuits against the driver.  Additionally, in several states, dram shop laws exist which may allow victims to sue the alcohol vendor who served the driver prior to the crash.

California’s dram shop law states that an alcohol vendor or a social host may be held liable for drunk driving crash injuries if they provide alcohol to someone under the legal drinking age of 21 years old.
