When you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver, you deserve to be compensated for any damages, injuries, pain, and suffering that was caused as a result of the accident.

The California car accident attorneys at The Barnes Firm warn motorists to drink responsibly and be aware of the risks impaired drivers pose on the roads.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), almost 29 people in the United States die in alcohol-impaired vehicle crashes every day.

During the holiday months (November & December), Californians will be attending many parties and gatherings to celebrate Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and many other holidays. The Barnes Firm is urging everyone to drink responsibly, and drive carefully. In 2000, Congress made 0.08 the national standard for impaired driving. At a BAC of .08 grams of alcohol per deciliter of blood (g/dL), crash risk increases exponentially, explains NHTSA.

Drunk driving is considered "gross negligence" in the eyes of the law, according to The Barnes Firm car accident lawyers. If your legal team can establish that you were injured by a drunk driver, you could be entitled to significant compensation for your injuries.

“When you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver, you deserve to be compensated for any damages, injuries, pain, and suffering that was caused as a result of the accident,” Los Angeles car accident lawyer, John Sheehan said.

In the case of a car accident, The Barnes Firm says it’s imperative to first get immediate medical attention. Then, contact an experienced car accident lawyer who can help you maximize your compensation. This compensation can help pay any medical bills, lost wages, and other costs incurred as a result of an accident.
