Atwater Drunk Driving Accidents
Many negligent actions lead to serious accidents on our roadways across California. If you have been involved in a serious accident due to the negligence of another party, you have rights to compensation and should get started by talking with an attorney immediately.
Drunk driving are some of the most serious accidents on our roadways. When somebody makes the decision to drink and get behind the wheel of a car, they are committing a serious crime. If you can prove that the driver who struck you had been driving drunk at the time of the accident, they will almost always receive charges and be liable for your accident. This is why you should always call the police to the scene of your accident so that they can construct a police report that will name fault in the accident and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
You have the right to bring a personal injury lawsuit on behalf of the party who caused you harm.
