Intoxicated Driver | Drunk Driving Accident | Oakland

Drunk drivers pose a threat to everyone on, or even near, the road. A drunk driving accident can result in serious injuries, and even wrongful death. If you're the victim of a DUI accident, it's important to see a doctor, and to carefully document exactly what happened. Get names and phone numbers, if possible, of witnesses; take notes and photographs. This includes documenting injuries as well as the vehicle damage.

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Not surprisingly, people drive drunk often do not have car insurance, or do not have enough car insurance. That's why you should have uninsured-underinsured motorist coverage for damages in a drunk driver accident. If you don't, it can be difficult to gain compensation for your injury, at least from the driver directly. However, drunk driving is a crime in California, and so the drunk driver who caused the accident can still be liable for punitive damages in a civil lawsuit, and can be ordered to pay you restitution in a criminal case. These awards can help reimburse victims of drunk drivers for out of pocket expenses covering everything from vehicle towing to major medical bills. Collecting these accident damages, however, depends almost entirely upon the drunk driver's ability to pay them. You can't be awarded money if the money simply isn't there, and so the safest and surest bet is to have purchased uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage in advance.
