Drug and Alcohol Involved in Single-Car Injury Accident

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 12-Nov-2010

Reports say that after a night of heavy drug and alcohol use three youths were hospitalized for serious injuries in a single-car auto accident.

Folsom, CA emergency services were called to the scene of an accident in a gated community to find two males and one female between the ages of 16 and 17 who had been ejected from a crushed Ford Explorer. The driver, who was reportedly an unlicensed 17-year old male, was the only one of the four in the car who wasn't seriously injured. He was also the only occupant wearing a seat belt.

Reports say investigators found whiskey bottles and drug paraphernalia along the slope where the vehicle rolled over, indicating alcohol and drugs had likely caused the accident. The driver was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs causing serious injury and booked at the Sacramento Juvenile Hall.

The SUV apparently swerved onto a sidewalk and lost control, then rolled across vacant property until it came to a halt - without three of the four passengers.

Auto injuries are a fact of life. But those due to an unlicensed driver under the influence require some form of retribution from the responsible party.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
