Legal Help If You've Been Injured by a Drunk Driver

Drunk driving kills and injures many thousands of people in the U.S. every year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 9,967 people died in alcohol-related crashes in 2014, at a rate of one fatality every 53 minutes. In California alone, there were 882 deaths in accidents involving drivers with blood alcohol content of .08% or higher, accounting for 29% of all traffic fatalities statewide.

Driving under the influence of alcohol carries serious criminal penalties, along with potential loss of driving privileges. Injured victims of drunk driving accidents may also be entitled to file a claim or lawsuit to recover compensation for the losses they have suffered.

Victims have recourse under the civil justice system to recover compensation for the losses they have suffered as a result of such negligence. Damages may include:

Punitive damages, in addition to compensatory damages for your losses, are designed to punish the defendant for misconduct and to deter similar behavior in the future.
