What happens if you get into a car accident while driving drunk in California?

Mark Deniz: 

Unfortunately, it's a very common occurrence. It can go from the very slight fender bender to a very serious situation. The first thing you want to do is make sure you want to obtain representation and then take care... I know this is big fact for the prosecution and for the courts, is to take care of the other party, whether the collision was a fence of someone's house, another vehicle, a parked vehicle, or an occupied vehicle at an intersection. What you want to do is you want to get in front of that, have the insurance, make sure that the claim is settled, make sure that when you're doing that, you're doing it protected with what you say and that it gets screened. But what the best thing that you can do on these kind of cases, because they are considered very dangerous and the prosecution will be looking to throw a lot more punishment. But if you come in showing that the insurance is taking care of the claim and that the other parties are already satisfied, it'll go a long way in helping your case get the best possible outcome.
