Injuries Commonly Suffered in Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving accidents can cause a range of injuries, including:
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): High-impact collisions in drunk driving accidents can lead to traumatic brain injuries, causing long-term cognitive impairments and emotional challenges.
Spinal Cord Injuries: Severe spinal cord injuries are not uncommon, resulting in paralysis or permanent disability. Our attorneys understand the complexities of such cases and work to secure appropriate compensation.
Broken Bones and Fractures: The force of a drunk driving collision can cause fractures and broken bones, requiring extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.
Burns: Victims may suffer not only from the immediate impact of the accident but also from burns sustained during the collision or as a result of a vehicle catching fire. Burn injuries often require extensive medical treatment, such as skin grafts and specialized care.
Emotional Distress: Victims often experience emotional distress, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We consider these damages when seeking compensation.
These injuries can result in lifelong disabilities, chronic pain, and emotional trauma. If you've been injured in a drunk driving accident, it's important to seek medical attention right away and contact an attorney as soon as possible.
Parties Liable for Injuries in California Drunk Driving Accidents
Under California law, drunk drivers can be held responsible for any damages they cause. Criminal charges against the driver can support your personal injury case. In addition, other parties may also be liable, such as:
- Establishments Serving Alcohol: Under California's dram shop laws, establishments serving alcohol to visibly intoxicated individuals can be held liable for subsequent accidents caused by the intoxicated patrons they served.
- Social Hosts: Hosts of private events may be held liable if they provided alcohol to a minor or knowingly allowed an already intoxicated person to drive.
- Employers: If the intoxicated driver was working at the time of the crash, their employer may also be liable for the crash.
