Your Auto Insurance May Not Have to Pay For Any Damages Arising From A DUI Involving An Accident


In some cases, the courts have been enforcing exclusionary clauses wherein the insured is arrested and charged with a DUI involving an accident. This means that the insured/client will not be covered for any damages arising from a DUI involving an accident and all damages caused will have to be paid from the insured's pocket. The following clause has been enforced under California law: "While the insured auto is being used in the commission of a crime."

The policy defined "crime" as any act, which under the laws of California, is a felony. "Crime" shall also include any attempt to elude law enforcement personnel and driving under the influence of alcohol or while intoxicated or under the influence of any controlled substance.
