Drunk driving accidents are prevalent in California

California is the most populous state in the country. So, it should come as no surprise that we also have the most drivers on the roads - and the most car accidents. The cause of these car accidents vary, from traffic violations to distracted driving. But, there is one cause of car accidents that should never happen: drunk driving.

Drunk driving is probably the most common criminal offense in California, with approximately 200,000 people arrested for this crime each year. While being arrested for DUI can certainly have a harmful impact on a person's life, just think of how devastating it is when a drunk driver causes an accident in which another person is seriously injured or, in the worst-case scenarios, killed.

When an accident is caused by a drunk driver, California residents need to know that they may have legal options under state personal injury law. Negligence, recklessness and even willful conduct could all be involved in a personal injury lawsuit based on another party's decision to drink and drive.

At our law firm, we do our best to help California residents who have been involved in a drunk driving accident. These individuals can suffer devastating injuries, some of which could lead to permanent disability. Victims should not be forced to carry the financial burden of medical bills due to another party's negligent, reckless or willfully dangerous conduct. Seeking the assistance of an experienced attorney can help those in such situations move forward with a solid plan of legal action.
