St. Patrick’s Day Accidents

We have been practicing personal injury law exclusively since 1982 and have seen some tragic accidents which simply did not need to happen. Our client reviews are on: Yelp, Avvo, Google Plus and Facebook.

On March 17 every year people all over celebrate Irish culture and St. Patrick’s Day. While most people celebrate this holiday in a responsible manner there are, unfortunately, many who do not. In fact, St. Patrick’s Day is one of the deadliest holidays in many parts of California. In 2013, 31 people were killed in Sacramento on Saint Patrick’s Day.

There is absolutely no reason to drive drunk in Sacramento. These days people can call a cab, ask a friend, get a ride via Uber or Lyft, or use one of many designated driver programs available in Sacramento such as BeMyDD, WeDrive, or make use of the California Office of Traffic Safety’s DDVIP app from the App Store or Google Play.

Who is liable in drunk driving accidents?

Every case is different and here’s where a Sacramento car accident lawyer with over 30 years of experience can make a drastic difference in the outcome of your injury or wrongful death claim: In many cases there are parties, in addition to the drunk driver and their insurer, who may be held liable such as anyone who contributed to the responsible party’s negligent actions. If a host, establishment, or bar served someone who is visibly intoxicated they may be held liable as well; this is called dram shop liability and is outlined in Business and Professions Code 25602. Not only is serving the visibly intoxicated a crime but businesses who sell alcohol to the visibly intoxicated may be held liable for injuries or death caused by individuals who purchased alcohol while visibly drunk. In any car accident case it is important to have an experienced attorney examine all of the possibilities and discover all of the parties responsible.

Be Safe

If you are celebrating St. Paddy’s Day in Sacramento please be safe. There is plenty of fun to be had at events such as Off The Chain St. Patrick’s Day Pub Crawl, Annual O’Sacramento St. Patrick’s Day Parade, The Boxing Donkey, Fox & Goose St. Patrick’s Day Celebration, Shamrock’n Half Marathon and 5k, and the St. Patrick’s Day Block Party. There will be many various checkpoints on the road but there will be intoxicated drivers on the road as well.
