Compassionate DUI Accidents Lawyer Serving San Jose & Salinas Families
Being involved in any type of accident is an unpleasant experience, but when the accident is the result of a drunk driver the consequences seem that much more unfair. No one should drive drunk under any circumstances and if you’ve been injured because of poor decision-making, you deserve to be compensated. The seasoned attorneys at Accident Recovery Legal Center can help you make your case.
California is a “Fault” Driving State
A “fault” driving state is one in which victims of negligent auto accidents are allowed to sue the responsible parties for compensation for their losses, including medical bills. Therefore, Californians who have suffered injuries due to another driver’s irresponsible actions can file a claim with their own insurance company, the other driver’s insurance company or sue the other driver personally. We can help you decide which route to take depending on the circumstances of your accident.
When Alcohol is a Factor
If you’ve been hurt because someone was driving under the influence, they should be made to take responsibility for their carelessness. If the drunk driver was apprehended at the scene of the accident and charged with a DUI, filing your claim will likely be a straightforward process that has their insurance company offering you a generous settlement to avoid an unsympathetic lawsuit. Even if they haven’t been convicted of a DUI, we can help you build your case proving their negligence and get you the compensation you deserve.
