Los Angeles DUI Accidents
Driving under the influence is a serious problem, both in California as well as nationwide. An impaired driver puts everyone else at risk. Impairing substances include alcohol but also include drugs, both illegal and prescription. Driving under the influence of prescription drugs, such as painkillers, is becoming a more common problem. In this case, the source of the allegedly impairing substance is unknown.
A person who drives while impaired is legally responsible for injuries suffered to others as a result of their negligence. DUI cases often present special challenges and require the examination of technical evidence. In some cases, expert witnesses are necessary to prove impairment.
