If you go home from work and are DUI at time of fatal accident, you can be sued by family of victim, San Diego DUI lawyers say.
The family of a man struck by a drunk driver who drove with the dying victim on her windshield is suing the Southern California drug rehab center where she worked.
The Los Angeles Times says the wrongful death suit filed Thursday alleges Twin Town Treatment Center in Torrance was negligent because it failed to properly monitor Sherri Lynn Wilkins.
At the time of the crash on November 24, 2012, Wilkins told police she was heading home from work. The treatment center denies she was working at the facility that day.
California DUI Prosecutors claim Wilkins’ blood-alcohol level was nearly twice the legal limit when she struck 31-year-old Phillip Moreno.
