Los Angeles Car Injury Attorney

Drinking and Driving

Cases involving drinking and driving are known by many different names: driving under the influence (DUI), driving while intoxicated (DWI), drunken driving, drunk driving, operating under the influence, drinking and driving, and impaired driving.  No matter what your jurisdiction calls drinking and driving it is the act of driving a motor vehicle with blood levels of alcohol in excess of the legal limit. If you or a loved one have been injured by a drunk driver the Los Angeles DUI accident attorneys at Grey Law can help you understand your legal rights.

With the volume of traffic in the Los Angeles area and throughout Southern California, motor vehicle accidents regularly occur.  There is also a high incidence of traffic accidents occurring as the result of a drunk driver.  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics in 2008 there were:

  • 920 fatal accidents in California where at least one driver had a Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) of 0.08% or above.
  • 1,029 fatal accidents in California where at least one driver had a BAC of 0.08% or above.
  • 170 people were killed in California in accidents where at least one driver had a BAC between 0.01% and 0.07%.
  • 1,198 total deaths caused in California where at least one driver had a BAC of 0.01% or above.

Accidents caused by drunk driving in Los Angeles and throughout California have the potential to cause significant harm and fatal injuries to other drivers, passengers and pedestrians.  In many cases, drivers who followed all traffic laws and acted responsibly were seriously injured by irresponsible drivers who were under the influence of alcohol.  In addition to the criminal penalties that these drivers may face, they may also be held civilly liable for the injuries suffered by drunk driving accident victims.

Nobody should have to deal with a drunk driving crash alone.  If you or someone you know has been involved in a drunk driving accident, the aftermath can be hard to deal with.  In such a serious event, people can be overwhelmed by emotion and not know how to think or feel.  Drunk driving can have long lasting effects on everyone involved.  If you are a victim of a drunk driving accident, it is in your best interest to speak with an attorney as soon as you can.  The attorneys at Grey Law specialize in drinking and driving accidents and can help you with your case.  Contact our office today at 323-857-9500 for a free case evaluation.
