What Is the Legal DUI Limit in California?

In California, drivers are found to be intoxicated if they drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of .08% or higher. Even though .08% is the legal limit, a driver can still be arrested for driving under the influence if their BAC level is not that high.

If the individual's driving ability has become hindered by alcohol, they could still face DUI charges. People who choose to drive while under the influence are not only breaking the law and putting themselves in harm's way; they are also putting the lives of others at risk.

Why Does Drinking Alcohol Increases the Risk of Traffic Accidents?

Drunk drivers are much more likely to cause accidents for a number of reasons:

  • They have a slower reaction time
  • They are less likely to stop for red lights, stop signs, pedestrians, etc.
  • Their vision is compromised
  • They are less likely to obey proper speed limits

Work with a Former Insurance Defense Attorney

One of our founding attorneys has a background in defending insurance companies, which now enables him to predict the various tactics used to cheat accident victims out of compensation.

This in turn allows us to build the strongest cases possible for our clients. No two cases are alike, and we ensure that every client is provided with individualized attention and a customized solution.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • I would highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys.

    “It was such a pleasure to be represented by Cohn and Swartzon recently. I would highly recommend them to anyone in need of honest, knowledgeable, and hard fighting attorneys. After a car accident which involved numerous injuries, I couldn't handle the stress of dealing with insurance companies. They completely took over for me. They negotiated with the insurance companies and as a result of their determination, I received a very fast and fair settlement. All during this process, they kept me updated on all the proceedings, always returned my phone calls promptly and answered any questions I had. The entire staff at Cohn and Swartzon were always courteous and helpful. Thank you ever so much!”

  • We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible.

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV. Cohn & Swartzon took care of everything, from dealing with my own insurance to educating me on the importance of getting top notch medical care. We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need.

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”
