Perhaps the most important thing to know about drunk driving accidents is that they are 100% preventable.  That may also be the saddest thing since it means that the victims didn’t need to be injured or didn’t need to die too soon.  DUI accidents with child victims are particularly tragic because children pay the price for an adult’s bad decision.  As a Santa Rosa child injury lawyer, Greg Brod helps represent injured children, whether they were in the car with the drunk driver, in another vehicle, or simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
