Liability In Car Accidents
The holidays can be a dangerous time to drive a car. There are a disproportionate number of people on the road that are intoxicated during the holidays. A number of people don’t realize is that prescription drugs and over the counter drugs can impair driving as well. California does not distinguish between the two.
It is a felony to cause great bodily injury while under the influence of alcohol. In addition to criminal negligence a driver may face civil liability as well for an accident. A victim or their family may have the ability to file a claim against the negligent driver in order to be compensated for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. It’s important to seek the legal advice of a car accident attorney if you’ve been involved in an accident.
