WHO CAN BE HELD LIABLE?
Driving a motor vehicle in the state of California while under the influence of mind-altering substances, including alcohol, prescription or over-the-counter drugs, and narcotics, can lead to criminal and civil penalties. If it can be shown that a motorist with a BAC (blood alcohol content) of .08 percent or greater has caused a traffic accident, then he or she can be held liable for any damages that occurred. If a minor has caused a motor vehicle accident because he or she was inebriated, it may be possible to hold the party who furnished or sold the alcohol to the minor liable for damages. Our drunk driving accident lawyers can review your case and help determine who is liable.
DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT LAWSUITS
The number of alcohol-related motorist deaths in the United States each year is staggering. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2005, alcohol-related traffic accidents accounted for 16,885 fatalities, or 39 percent of all traffic deaths. The fact that driving while intoxicated is a willful, and preventable, choice means that nearly half of the individuals killed each year in traffic accidents may be alive today if not for the reckless and negligent actions of people who should have known better.
