Liability For Victorville DUI Car Accidents

Driver intoxication remains a leading cause of car accidents in the United States. According to the NHTSA, “About 30% of all traffic crash fatalities in the United States involve drunk drivers (with BACs of .08 g/dL or higher). In 2020, there were 11,654 people killed in these preventable crashes. In fact, on average over the 10-year period from 2011-2020, about 10,500 people died every year in drunk-driving crashes.” There are many substances besides alcohol that could potentially impair a driver.

  • Prescription medications
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Sleep aids
  • THC

Any person that causes an accident while intoxicated could face civil and criminal liability for their actions. Victims of DUI collisions can seek some measure of justice through a bodily injury claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A personal injury attorney can examine all of the unique facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
