What Is Considered "Drunk Driving" in California? Understand Drunk Driving Laws in California

In California, a driver can be considered "drunk driving" if their blood alcohol content (BAC) is 0.08% or higher. Drivers under the age of 21 cannot have a BAC of more than 0.01%, and commercial drivers cannot have a BAC of more than 0.04%.

Depending on the severity of the accident, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against the driver who caused the accident. Your claim will likely be based on the driver's negligence and/or liability for causing the accident. If you were injured by a drunk driver, Haslerud Law Office, A Professional Corporation can help you seek compensation for your injuries and damages.

Financial Impact of Drunk Driving Accidents

Victims of a drunk driving accident may be eligible to recover various types of compensation, depending on the circumstances of the accident and the injuries sustained. The potential compensation may include:

  • Medical Expenses:

    Coverage for current and future medical bills related to injuries sustained in the accident, including hospitalization, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and therapy.

  • Lost Wages:

    Compensation for income lost due to the inability to work during recovery or potential long-term disability resulting from the accident.

  • Property Damage:

    Reimbursement for the repair or replacement of the victim's vehicle or other property damaged in the accident.

  • Pain and Suffering:

    Non-economic damages intended to compensate for physical and emotional distress, pain, and suffering caused by the accident.

  • Wrongful Death Damages:

    In cases where the accident results in a fatality, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and the emotional impact of losing a loved one.

  • Punitive Damages:

    In some cases, victims may be awarded punitive damages, which aim to punish the at-fault party for gross negligence, willful misconduct, or a wanton disregard for the safety of others.

It's important to note that the specific compensation a victim can recover depends on California law, the evidence presented, and the extent of the damages. Consulting with a qualified personal injury attorney is crucial to understanding the full scope of potential compensation and navigating the legal process effectively. An attorney can assess the details of the case, gather evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, and, if necessary, pursue legal action to secure the compensation the victim deserves.
