Liability for Drunk Driving Injuries
By law, it is the responsibility of every individual to practice reasonable
care in avoiding risk to the safety of others. Failure to do so is considered
negligence, and if it causes injury or
wrongful death, it is grounds for a
personal injury lawsuit. Driving while intoxicated is one of the most common acts of negligence
that drivers can make, and often results in tragic consequences. If you
have been injured in a
car accident with a drunk driver, you deserve to take action.
In order to establish liability, you must prove the following:
- The driver's intoxication was above a safe operation level
- The driver failed to take reasonable action to avoid endangering you
- This negligence was the direct or proximate cause of your injury
To prove these elements, we will make use of any field sobriety test results,
witness testimony, police reports, and expert opinions. These cases are
typically easier to prove than other injury claims, as drunk driving is
not only blatantly negligent, but it is illegal as well. However, it is
still important that you have the right Pasadena injury lawyer to ensure
that you receive a full and fair settlement for your damages.
What damages can I seek?
It is important to understand the damages for which you can seek liability
in a drunk driving accident case. Typically, you can be compensated for
any medical bills that result from the attention you need after the accident,
as well as any follow up doctor visits that may be necessary. Additionally,
you can pursue recovery for any lost wages because your injury prevents
you from being able to work, or because you lost a loved one who contributed
to your income. A drunk driving accident has the potential for additional
compensation that is particular to this kind of claim.
For example, as drunk driving is illegal, a judge might award punitive
damages as a means to punish the individual for his or her reckless behavior
and poor decisions. Furthermore, if the driver was a minor, you may also
be able to seek compensation from the bar or establishment that provided
the alcohol under California's "Dram Shop Law." Our team
of legal professionals will analyze every aspect of your case to ensure
that you are receiving the maximum compensation for your damages.
