More than 1,000 road accidents were attributed to drunk driving in California in 2018. Thirty percent of these accidents were fatal. More than 10,000 Americans die each year as a result of drunk driving. Those who are injured in car crashes caused by drunk drivers are often far worse off than those who suffer injuries in ordinary crashes. Intoxicated people are often more reckless than sober people.
In addition to the mental and physical suffering victims have to endure, they often face mounting medical bills and are forced to miss work as a result. If you have been injured in a car accident caused by a negligent or reckless driver, you should speak to a California auto accident attorney immediately. Most of the time, victims are entitled to compensation to alleviate the financial burdens they will face in the future.
