One seriously injured in restaurant car crash

No one expects to become involved in a car accident, but it is one of the realities drivers on the road in California have to contend with daily when they get into their vehicles. While driving is one of the most common behaviors people across the country engage in, it is also one of the most dangerous, with people dying in car accidents on a daily basis. However, people do not expect to suffer injuries from a car accident while sitting inside a restaurant, which is exactly what happened in California recently.

A forty-year-old woman was arrested after she drove her vehicle through the window of a restaurant. A 60-year-old man was injured as a result and was taken to the hospital. Other restaurant patrons were also injured by the flying debris and shards of glass, but did not need to be hospitalized. The woman was four times the legal limit of blood alcohol.

The accident took place around noon, when the restaurant was likely to be busy with many patrons for lunchtime. A field sobriety test was conducted, as was a blood-alcohol test. She was arrested for felony DUI with bodily harm.

Civil cases progress independently from criminal cases and have a different goal. One's injuries in a crash caused by someone else will most likely require medical treatment and bills will pile up, as will one's lost wages from missing out on work. A personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party can be one way to collect those costs from the person who caused them. An experienced attorney can discuss one's options with them and help them get the justice they deserve.
