Can I Sue For Drunk Driving Crash Injuries?

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

It is crucial for victims injured by drunk drivers or family members of victims who have been killed by drunk drivers to understand their legal rights. In all 50 states, victims injured by drunk drivers may have the option to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver.

However, these victims may also have the option to sue the alcohol vendor who provided the driver with alcohol prior to the crash. This may only occur in states with third-party liability dram shop laws. California has dram shop laws although they are more reserved than other states.

In California, if an alcohol vendor or a social host provides alcohol to someone under the legal drinking age of 21 years old, then they may be held liable for subsequent DUI crash injuries.
