Hit By Drunk Driver, Then You Can Recover Punitive Damages! Per CA Law CACI 3945
Our roads are dangerous enough with the many drivers that fail to follow the rules of the road and drive distracted. But drunk drivers raise the level of danger and the law provides a mechanism to punish the drunk driver. In addition to obtaining full and fair compensation for your medical bills, loss of earnings, physical pain, mental suffering, emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life from a drunk driver that injures you or a loved family member, the law allows you to recover punitive damages. Per the jury instruction, CACI 3945, “The purposes of punitive damages are to punish a wrongdoer for the conduct that harmed the plaintiff and to discourage similar conduct in the future.” Call our firm at 866-757-0959 or at 714-544-1460 so we can help you get justice against a drunk driver that has harmed you or a family member.
