DUI Car Accident Claims and Lawsuits

DUI car accidents are a serious situation throughout the U.S., accounting for 11,773 fatalities in 2008 alone. According to statistics compiled by the NHTSA, approximately one-third of traffic accident fatalities throughout the United States in 2008 involved one or more drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater, the level at which a driver is considered to be "under the influence" under California law. If you or someone you know was injured or lost their life in a car accident involving a drunk driver, please do not hesitate to contact our firm.

Pacific Attorney Group takes on DUI car accident claims and lawsuits throughout the LA area, representing victims and their families and assisting them in taking legal action against drunk drivers. Although a drunk driver will typically face criminal charges for his or her actions, you may also be able to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim in civil court, where your attorney can assist you in recovering financial damages for your injuries or loss. Depending on the case, you may be able to recover money for medical care, lost earnings, funeral costs and other issues from the drunk driver.

How a Drunk Driver Causes a Car Accident

A driver who is DUI (driving under the influence) typically has a delayed reaction time and inability to drive safely. Alcohol or drugs in the system can delay reaction to an emergency situation and can also influence a driver's decisions, causing him or her to speed, driver too slowly, disobey traffic laws, or otherwise drive recklessly and put others in danger.

Make sure you hold the drunk driver who caused your injuries responsible for his or her actions. Contact a Los Angeles DUI accident attorney at our firm to find out how.
