Proving Liability for Your Drunk Driving Claim
As a California driver’s license holder, we all have a responsibility to drive safely and avoid being a danger to those around us. Drunk driving is considered one of the most irresponsible actions a person can conduct in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 10,000 people were killed in alcohol-impaired driving collisions, which accounted for 31% of all traffic-related deaths in the nation in 2014. Based on the report by Mother Against Drunk Driving (MADD), a person is injured in a drunk driving crash every two minutes.
In regards to pursuing a personal injury claim, it’s generally straightforward when proving that a driver’s intoxication was the cause of the accident. We can conduct our own investigation into your case, gather the necessary evidence and interview witnesses to develop an aggressive and personalized strategy for you.
Aside from the driver, other responsible parties may include the following:
Social hosts – organizations or people who host parties or events which serve alcohol, especially if the host was clearly intoxicated and provided alcohol to their guests.
Bar or restaurant owners and staff – According to California Civil Code 1714, owners and employees of bars and restaurants have some liability protection. However, there are some circumstances where they could be held responsible, such as not denying a person who clearly had too much to drink.
