What Damages Can You Recover After a Drunk Driver Hits You?
After you’ve established that everyone, including yourself, has received the necessary medical assistance, your next concern is probably how much this accident will cost you. The various losses you suffer in a drunk-driving car crash are expensive. Luckily, you could recover damages such as:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages and future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Assistive devices and modifications
- Future medical expenses
- Loss of consortium
As a drunk driving accident victim, you may be entitled to recover some or all of these damages. It’s important to meet with an experienced Sacramento car accident attorney to understand each type of damage’s specific details and requirements and how they apply to your particular case.
What Is the California Statute of Limitations for a Drunk Driving Crash?
You need to act fast when you’re a drunk driving crash victim. You only have so much time to file a personal injury claim to hold the negligent parties accountable. According to California Courts, you have two years from the accident date to file your claim.
However, our team of drunk driving car accident attorneys in Sacramento encourages you to file your case early. Doing so will give our lawyers more time to gather relevant evidence to build your case, giving you a higher chance of success.

Why Are Drunk Driving Accidents More Dangerous than Other Accidents?
When people consume alcohol, it impairs their cognitive abilities and motor functions. This includes reduced judgment, diminished decision-making skills, decreased coordination, and slowed reaction times. As a result, drunk drivers are more likely to make poor decisions on the road and struggle to respond effectively to hazards, making accidents far more dangerous than those involving sober drivers.
Alcohol consumption also often leads to increased risk-taking behaviors behind the wheel. Intoxicated drivers may exhibit reckless behaviors such as excessive speeding, tailgating, aggressive maneuvers, or running red lights. These behaviors significantly heighten the chances of a severe accident, putting themselves and other innocent road users at risk of injury or fatality.
Drunk driving accidents result in more severe and catastrophic outcomes than other accidents. The combination of impaired judgment, reduced coordination, and high speeds often leads to violent and forceful impacts. As a result, victims involved in drunk driving accidents are more likely to suffer devastating injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple fractures, or even death.
