California Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident, you will likely require the legal services of a California drunk driving accident lawyer. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), on average every fifty-three minutes, someone is killed by a drunk driver. Further, MADD also points out that on average every ninety minutes, someone is seriously injured by a drunk driver.

While it may not be irresponsible to have a couple of drinks with your friends at a bar, it is certainly irresponsible to end a night of drinking by getting behind the wheel of a vehicle. Many people have the belief that driving while tipsy is not drunk driving. However, operating a vehicle while intoxicated by any amount of alcohol can result in severe injuries including death.

Drunk drivers put their own lives and the lives of others in severe jeopardy. In a split second, a drunk driving accident can dramatically change the lives of the victims and the lives of those who love them. The state of California has strict laws supporting the victims of drunk driving accidents.

It is important to hire an experienced drunk driving accident attorney today, if you have recently been injured in a drunk driving accident. A California drunk driving accident lawyer at The May Firm will aggressively fight for your rights as the victim of a serious crime.

Get The Compensation You Deserve

You are likely aware that all of the victims of California drunk driving accidents are deserving of many forms of compensation. However, what you may not be aware of is that without a good attorney experienced in handling personal injuries due to drunk driving, insurance companies can easily get out of fairly compensating you. It happens every day to those who allow the insurances companies to handle the case instead of getting a top California drunk driving accident lawyer to represent their interests.

Some people are fooled into thinking that their own insurance company has the client’s best interest in mind. The reality is that clients will often be fooled by their own insurance companies into accepting poor settlement offers. Insurance companies will also frequently deny coverage on false grounds. Without experienced legal representation, this could easily happen to you. The May Firm will communicate to you insurance to ensure that you are covered and compensated in full for the damages that occurred to you.

When calculating a compensation amount, The May Firm attorneys will take all forms of damages into account. Some of the most common forms of damages are medical costs, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and permanent disability. The May Firm Attorneys are prepared to fight for the compensation that you deserve.

California Drunk Driving Accidents Are Not Always Clear


Remember, any insurance company’s top concern will be to protect their own interests. Even if you believe you are not at fault, an insurance company may attempt to frame you at fault. In fact, many car accidents end up with partial blame on both sides. For example, if you are hit by a drunk driver at a 4 way stop intersection, it could potentially be found that you are 20% to blame for the accident. The drunk driver’s insurance will certainly be pushing for partial blame!

For these reasons, your insurance company’s top concern is NOT to represent your best interest; it is making sure that they do everything possible to pay the least amount of money possible for your damages. Do not rely on the attorneys of your insurance company to look out for your best interest. You need an attorney who will work to fight the insurance company when it attempts to rob you of what you deserve.

Information Necessary For All Drunk Driving Accidents


It is important to be aware that police reports are sometimes found to be faulty. You need to work with an experienced attorney who will quickly resolve any issues like this. The May Firm’s personal injury attorneys will make sure all witnesses are interviewed before too much time has passed, they will hire investigators if necessary, and they will lock down any necessary evidence.

Clients Testimonials

frequently asked questions

The attorneys at May Firm answer questions clients frequently ask about motor vehicle accidents and wrongful death claims in California.

When you are injured in an accident that was not caused by your fault, the most important thing you can do is take care of yourself. It can be very difficult, if not nearly impossible, to navigate through the accident claim process on your own. Insurance companies often attempt to settle cases as quickly as possible to avoid paying further medical fees for innocent victims like you. By hiring a personal injury lawyer, you can focus on getting back on your feet and you can trust that your legal battle is being fought by knowledgeable attorneys. As you heal from your physical and emotional injuries, an attorney will fight the insurance companies and the person who is at fault for the accident to get you the compensation you deserve. The personal injury attorneys at The May Firm have extensive knowledge on a variety of personal injury cases, as well as how the law applies to each individual case. You will not be taken advantage of by an insurance company with the guidance and support of an attorney. The May Firm will be a powerful advocate working for you.

An experienced personal injury attorney will work tirelessly to maximize the value of your case. Not hiring an attorney can be, and usually is, a major mistake. Unintentional legal mistakes occur during the first call or visit with the claims adjuster. Insurance adjusters are trained to ask certain questions that could pose problems for your case later. They are also trained to offer a small settlement amount right up front. Unfortunately, some people agree to the small up-front settlement and regret it later when they have on-going medical issues.

The May Firm offers clients a free, no-obligation initial consultation. During our first discussion together, our experienced personal injury attorneys will take the time to ask you questions. We will ask for details regarding the accident that led to your personal injury, in addition to information about the injuries you suffered due to the accident. The questions are asked in an effort to determine the viability of your case. If we determine that you have a solid case, we will help you gather police reports, photos, wage loss information, billing statements and medical records, all of which will help us build a solid foundation for your specific case.

A personal injury lawyer should be called whenever you experience an injury due to someone else’s negligence. Common personal injury cases may include: motorcycle accidents, car accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, dog bites, construction accidents, and injuries due to a defective product. It doesn’t matter if your injury is minor or severe, a personal injury attorney can help you manage claims against your insurance company, or the insurance company of the person who is responsible for the accident. An attorney will act as your advocate during this difficult time to ensure your rights are protected and fought for. The personal injury attorneys at The May Firm can also assist you in recovering damages for your time spent out of work due to your injury.

Our first meeting with potential clients is always a free consultation. There is no obligation to continue working together if the fit is not right. During the free consultation, an attorney at The May Firm will sit down with you and will ask you many questions to find out every detail about your situation. We will ask about how the accident happened, what injuries you suffered as a result of the accident, and what your life is like as you recover and heal from your physical injuries. We will also determine if you have a case. If we determine that you have a case, we will go over the next steps with you, including a list of documents you will need to gather for us to use as a starting point in building a strong case for you.
