Drunk Driving Is a Constant Danger in California
Even though everyone understands and acknowledges that drunk driving is a dangerous habit, drunk driving remains a pervasive problem on California roads. According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, 1,223 traffic fatalities involved alcohol in 2016 across the state. There were another 27,394 people injured as a result of alcohol. The number of drivers injured and killed in drunk driving accidents has steadily risen every year since 2010. Drugs, moreover, were involved in 733 traffic deaths that year, and 3,233 people were hurt in crashes involving drugs statewide. There are over 100,000 DUI convictions every year across the state.
California has worked to toughen up its drunk driving laws over the years, but the efforts have not stopped the incidence of drunk driving. By holding drunk drivers responsible for the injuries they cause, you can help discourage the next person from getting behind the wheel after too many drinks. The DUI crash lawyers at Solution Now Law Firm will fight to hold drunk drivers liable for the devastation they cause and help you put the pieces of your life back together after a catastrophic accident.
We Fight for Justice for Drunk Driving Accident Victims
If you or your loved one was hurt or killed in a drunk driving car accident, you might be able to recover a variety of damages. Drunk driving is likely to lead to a host of different injuries, including head trauma, shoulder, back, spine, and neck injuries, bone fractures, muscle tears, coma, and even death. You have the right to hold a drunk driver responsible for the damage they have caused. You can bring a civil claim for damages regardless of whether the driver was also arrested and convicted for any related crimes–your civil damages are meant to make you and your family whole after the accident, or at least as whole as possible.
Drunk driving crash victims may be able to recover damages such as:
- Medical costs, both past and estimated future expenses
- Income lost due to time spent away from work
- Disability expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Wrongful death
Additionally, you might be able to recover punitive damages. While other damages are intended to compensate the victims of an accident, punitive damages are meant to punish the wrongdoers. They are available when a defendant’s conduct was especially reckless or intentionally malicious and are awarded on top of the other damages. If a person knowingly gets behind the wheel after drinking too much, it could be said they are acting so recklessly as to knowingly endanger everyone on the road. When they cause a crash, they deserve to be punished. The drunk driving accident lawyers at Solution Now Law Firm will help you ensure that they are.
