What Kind Of Damages Can You Pursue In A Drunk Driving Accident Case?
Drunk driving is defined by the state of California as operating a vehicle with a blood-alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or above. Drivers who exceed the BAC limit can be arrested and charged with drunk driving. They may also face additional charges if their behavior resulted in another’s injury or death. Criminal penalties for drunk driving may include jail time, fines and fees, probation, or community service.
While the state pursues these criminal charges, you have the right to pursue damages from the intoxicated driver. This is a separate case, handled in a separate courtroom with a separate lawyer. One of our experienced California or Nevada drunk driving accident attorneys can assist you in this area.
