DUI Crash Statistics

The liability is clear in this case as the suspect was driving while under the influence of drugs at the time of the accident. Driving while drugged or intoxicated is probably one of the most reckless and dangerous things a driver can do.

Intoxicated drivers put innocent people — and themselves — at severe and unacceptable risk. While California and the United States as a whole have made some remarkable progress on curbing drinking and driving, there is still a very long way to go.

Approximately 30 people in the U.S. die every day due to drunk driving accidents. Drunk driving accounts for about 29 percent of all motor vehicle accident fatalities in the U.S. Around sixty-one percent of these drivers have a Blood Alcohol Content of .08 percent or higher.

Following a significant DUI accident, the intoxicated driver is likely to face serious criminal charges. Under California state law (California Vehicle Code 23513), a DUI that results in an injury to another person can be charged as a felony offense.

Personal Injury Attorney for Victims of DUI Crashes in Ventura County

California is a fault-based motor vehicle accident jurisdiction. To hold another party legally responsible for injuries sustained in a car wreck, the victim must establish that the other party bears liability for the crash. Liability is typically based on a legal theory called ‘negligence.’

Essentially, negligence is reckless or careless conduct that causes an injury to another party. Of course, intoxicated driving is, by definition, negligent driving. Indeed, it is one of the worst types of careless drivers.
