Drunk Driving Accidents and Injuries – Los Angeles Lawyers
If You Were Injured by a Drunk Driver, We Are Here to Help.
We’ve all been told not to drink and drive, but when others make the bad choice to ignore that advice, everyone on the road is at risk. The accidents caused by these drivers are often very serious and can result in catastrophic injuries. Such a tragedy can affect your whole family.
Learning the driver who ran into your vehicle was impaired and decided to drive anyway can make the whole experience even more devastating. You and your loved ones’ suffering can seem so senseless and unfair. That’s why our lawyers have been fighting for Los Angeles injury victims for a combined 35+ years. We are here to help you find justice after a horrible incident.
Justice for the Victims of Drunk Drivers
The most common cause of fatal car accidents is drunk driving. Though the impaired driver will face criminal penalties for their dangerous behavior, this kind of judgement does not do anything to help the victims of the accident. However, we can help you file a claim for compensation in civil court. You may be eligible to receive not only the balance for your medical costs, but also lost wages, future medical needs and, if our investigation determines the negligent driver was legally intoxicated, punitive damages.
It is important to avoid speaking with any representative of the other driver's insurance company if you want a fair settlement. Do not sign any documents without first receiving independent legal advice. Insurance company investigators are only interested in finding information that will exonerate their client and are not afraid to use your own words against you. Our attorneys will stop them from resorting to these tricks during the negotiation process.
You deserve the best treatment after being injured by a drunk driver. Our team at Shoop | A Professional Law Corporation can help you pursue compensation to make that possible—and to obtain justice against the person whose careless behavior caused your injuries.
