California drivers face many dangers on the roadway from negligent drivers, but the biggest risk lies with drunk drivers.
We know that when you start the day, the last thing on your mind is that something will happen to alter the life of you or a family member. Unfortunately, you cannot predict the behavior of other people. Alcohol-impaired drivers are a danger to everyone in and around the roadway.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Agency:
For the latest reporting year in California, there were more than 25,000 alcohol-related injuries and 1,369 alcohol-related fatalities in the state.
Despite averaging more than 150,000 DUI arrests a year in California, law enforcement is just not able to stop every drunk driver from causing harm.
Alcohol-impaired driving is irresponsible and negligent behavior. Those who choose to drink and drive should be held accountable for their actions, both criminally and civilly.
We know that those who drink and drive pose a danger in all driving situations. At high speeds, drunk drivers often do not react to an accident until it is over with and the damage is done. Impaired drivers pose a threat to not only other vehicle passengers, but to motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
Anyone in or around the roadway is in danger when a driver is impaired.
California has dram shop and liquor laws in place to punish those who knowingly sell or serve alcohol to minors. If you have been hurt by a drunk driver under the age of 21, you may be able to pursue the person who provided them with the alcohol.
It is absolutely vital that you seek legal assistance if you have been injured in an accident with a drunk driver. We know that you will have expenses that go beyond the medical bills that are starting to come in.
What if your injuries cause you to miss work? Will you be able to pay your household bills and feed your family?
