California Drunk Driving Statistics

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 30% of the total driving fatalities in California gets attributed to drunk driving. In 2018, more than 1,000 people died in the state. The total number of drunk driving accidents hasn’t fallen since 2005. This is because Los Angeles gets more and more congested each day. Reports suggest that age groups between 21 and 34 are more likely to get into a DUI or DWI accident resulting in devastating consequences.

How Do You Get Compensation for Drunk Driving Accidents?

Drivers must exert extreme caution while driving as they have a duty of care towards other drivers and pedestrians. In a drunk driving accident case, the drunk driver had the duty of care they breached, resulting in an accident due to the drunk driver’s negligence. In court, DUI is often separated into civil and criminal proceedings, and any result from the case can impact the other.

A drunk driving accident victim has the right to recover any damages from the at-fault drunk driver during a civil claim, and our Los Angeles personal injury attorneys can help retrieve the financial compensation from the drunk driver’s insurance company, including medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. If the intoxicated driver caused death, the deceased’s family could file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party.

A drunk driving car accident by a legally intoxicated person can create the need for punitive damages. Such damages deliver a financial punishment to discourage any illegal activities in the future. Before you file for a drunk driving accident claim after a motor vehicle accident, contact our experienced drunk driving accident attorneys immediately.

Insurance companies send insurance adjusters to undermine any drunk driving injuries to the victim and force them into taking low settlements for their personal injury claim. Having a qualified attorney can help evaluate the case, determine your claims, and get you maximum compensation for your losses.

Are Drunk Drivers Responsible for a Drunk Driving Accident?

For a successful auto accident case, a plaintiff must argue that the driver had a duty of care and, due to intoxication, they could not carry their duty of care. Any violation of the law designed to protect the public is negligence, and the plaintiff can argue that the breach of the duty of care made the driver negligent.

In the majority of drunk driving cases, the insurance company of the drunk drivers takes the financial responsibility of paying compensation. In contrast, in cases where a drunk employee caused an accident, an employer may be partially responsible for the damages.
