If you have recently been injured in an accident due to a drunk driver's negligent behavior behind the wheel, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries. Getting help from an experienced drunk driving accident attorney as soon as possible is strongly recommended. Driving under the influence or driving while intoxicated and being affected by alcohol or drugs is extremely negligent. A driver who is intoxicated and chooses to get behind the wheel anyway puts every other driver, pedestrian and passenger on the road at risk of death or a serious injury.
A lawyer can assist you with various aspects of a drunk driving accident claim, from reconstructing the scene of the accident to working with expert witnesses. Finding a lawyer you can trust is a very important part of filing a personal injury claim against the driver responsible for the accident. Since your life may never be the same after a drunk driving accident, your only recourse to help you get better is filing a legal claim.
Although the criminal court system may pursue charges against a drunk driver who initially caused an accident, this does not mean that the injured victims are compensated for the injuries they have sustained. An experienced Santa Barbara drunk driving accident lawyer, however, can work hard on the behalf of victims in order to recover damage awards after an accident has occurred. If you or a family member has been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you need to contact an experienced Santa Barbara drunk driving accident attorney as soon as possible.
Getting help from an experienced lawyer immediately is strongly recommended no matter how you came to find yourself involved in an accident like this. Do not hesitate to get the help you need. It could be essential for allowing you to piece your life back together. Contact The May Firm today for your free consultation.
In California, the civil court system enables victims to recover financial compensation for damages associated with the injuries caused by a drunk driver. An experienced attorney can pursue a legal claim and obtain financial compensation for lost wages, injuries, medical expenses, property damage, and pain and suffering. If the driver who caused your California car accident was legally intoxicated, punitive damages may also be explored. Exemplary or punitive damages can significantly increase the amount of compensation received by a victim. The purpose of these damages are to financially punish a person who was negligent in causing an accident and to make an example out of the individual who caused the collision.

If you have recently been injured in a California drunk driving accident, you should not speak to your insurance adjustor until you have had the opportunity to consult with an experienced attorney. Do not sign any agreements or submit to having your conversation recorded. Although you might think that as a loyal customer your insurance company is looking out for your best interests, the insurance company's primary goal is to pay as little as possible in terms of financial compensation in your claim. They may even unreasonably delay or deny your claim.
In this situation, it is imperative to have an experienced drunk driving accident attorney working hard on your behalf. While the insurance company representatives may be encouraging you to agree to a low and fast settlement offer, an experienced California attorney can evaluate your legal claim and determine whether or not the settlement being offered is in line with the compensation you deserve. Unfortunately, far too many accidents involving drunk drivers lead to substantial injuries that change the life of the victim forever. Working with a law firm who has the commitment and dedication to carrying out justice on behalf of injured victims is imperative.
