Drunk driving accidents lawyer in Los Angeles

Drunk driving accidents lawyer

    Drivers have a duty not to hurt others while driving a motor vehicle. While persons driving under the influence may face criminal charges, it is not necessary that a drunk driver be convicted criminally for you to bring a civil claim against them because the burden of proof in a civil proceeding is lower than that in a criminal proceeding. If the drunk driver is convicted, the court can award you restitution. If the driver is not convicted and pleads for a lower charge, damages can still be sought through a claim for personal injury.

    What compensation can usually be recovered?

    If you bring a personal injury suit against a driver who injured you, you may be able to recover compensation for damages such as your medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering. If the other driver was legally intoxicated at the time of the accident, you may also be entitled through a punitive damage claim, to seek further monetary damages. The object of punitive damages is to punish the drunk driver and make him or her an example as a deterrent for both his future self as well as other drivers.

    If a member of your family is killed in a drunk driving accident, the victim’s nearest surviving relative may file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek damages for pre-death medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of future employment, damage to property, mental anguish, and lack of treatment and services.

    Our professional attorneys are perfectly aware that victims of drunk driving accidents are often left with major physical, emotional and financial pressures. By providing you with knowledge, empathy and a superior level of personal service, we are here to help lift the burden. Because these cases typically involve complex and detailed discussions with insurance companies, most victims of injuries never get the full value of their claims. Insurers typically offer quick payments for as little money as possible. We will fight aggressively for your right to full reimbursement, including unexpected costs such as those for potential surgeries and treatments.
