Watch attorney Claude Wyle discuss a brain injury case he handled that involved a drunk driver who had been on the road after a work event. In California, employers that provide alcohol to employees for the benefit of the company are responsible for any damage caused by an employee who drives drunk. Based on the severity of the injury and state law, Mr. Wyle knew the settlement obtained by the original lawyer could be much larger; he obtained a settlement 150 times that of the original offer.
