The aftermath of a serious car accident can be devastating for just about anyone. In addition to recovering from significant or even debilitating physical injuries, a victim may also have to try to figure out how to support herself financially, as she may no longer be able to work. Moreover, an accident also takes an emotional toll both on the victim and his family. To add to these issues, California's legal system can be hard to understand, particularly for those who are immigrants to this country and thus may not be as familiar with the way the law works.

A recent daytime crash near Modesto sent 8 people, including two young children, to area hospitals with injuries. Police who responded to the accident described the injuries of two of the victims as quite serious.
As many residents of Modesto probably know, our state recently passed a measure allowing adults to use marijuana legally under certain restrictions. To be clear, though, this change did not affect the prohibition on driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
