What If The Driver Who Hit Me In California Was Drinking?
Under California law, if the driver who hit you was drinking, under the influence and had a prior DUI with injury, you can sue that person for punitive damages in California. Punitive damages are not something that’s covered by insurance so that money would have to come from the driver, him or herself.
