Hit by a Drunk Driver?
A Voice for Drunk Driving Accident Victims
Carolyn, a car accident client of the firm.
A drunk driving accident can happen anytime - weekends, holidays, middle
of the night. Surprisingly, many of our clients who were hit by a drunk
driver were headed to work in the morning when they were struck. With
the easy availability of Uber and Lyft, one would expect a reduction in
the number of drunk drivers on the road. Unfortunately, we have not seen
that to be the case. If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk
driver, it is vital that you seek assistance from a
Long Beach personal injury attorney.
Car Accident Lawyer in Long Beach
A drunk driver's perceptions are impaired. He or she doesn't have
the same instincts that a sober driver has, or the normal reaction time.
Due to the impairment, an accident caused by a drunk driver can be much
worse than that of a regular car accident. The drunk driver may ram your
car from behind or run a red light and T-bone your car accident, or swerve
into your lane on the freeway. These unfortunate collisions can result
in severe and life-threatening injuries or fatalities. Head-on collisions,
which are most likely to cause fatalities, can happen when an impaired
driver crosses the center line into oncoming traffic. Often the impaired
driver is young and sometimes even underage, but adults are also guilty
of this criminally negligent driving behavior. When an alcohol-impaired
driver causes injury to another, it is only fair that the driver takes
financial responsibility for all damages. A drunk driver can be forced
to pay punitive damages as well. A drunk driving accident lawyer with
our firm is fully experienced in preparing a comprehensive claim for compensation
based upon the circumstances and degree of injury in your case.
Drunk driving accident victims are entitled to be paid for all harms they
have suffered, including medical bills, lost wages, a disrupted life,
pain and suffering, disability and other directly related losses. Our
legal team takes steps to ensure a client is relieved of stress and worries
as much as possible, while we pursue a claim for full compensation. Call
