Lawyer Comments: In the second part of this story, personal injury lawyer Mike Pfau discusses a common question: can I recover financial compensation as a hit by drunk driver accident victim?

A 20-year-old man was charged with DUI after he crashed into another vehicle in Visalia on April 18, leaving himself and his two passengers injured.

Visalia police responded to reports of a crash at around 11:40 p.m. on Saturday. During their investigation, officers determined that a Chevy Suburban was driving southbound on Dinuba Boulevard and turned left at the intersection with Robin Drive, where the vehicle crashed into a northbound Volkswagen Jetta driven by 20-year-old Alexander Huerta.

Huerta and the two passengers in his Jetta suffered injuries that ranged from moderate to major. They were transported to Kaweah Delta Medical Center for treatment. Huerta was arrested for DUI after an investigation.

The other driver involved in the crash was not injured.

Financial Compensation For DUI Crash Victims in California

Attorney Mike Pfau represents people who have been injured in drunk driving crashes and helps them secure the financial compensation they need and deserve. Bobby has offered to share some info on the compensation options available to DUI crash victims in California:

“If you’ve recently been injured in a crash involving a drunk driver, it’s important to know that you have legal rights. You may be struggling with lost wages, high medical expenses, and other personal and economic difficulties. Fortunately, DUI crash victims often qualify for financial compensation through multiple types of lawsuits,” explained Mr. Pfau.

“Additionally, California allows alcohol vendors and social hosts to be sued for injuries caused by someone they provided alcohol to, under certain conditions. This is called a dram shop lawsuit,” concluded Mr. Pfau.
