San Diego Drunk Driving Accident Attorney
A driver who chooses to drink to intoxication and then drive an automobile puts everyone else on the road at risk of injury or death. They are clearly not exercising reasonable care and are are obviously negligent. Unlike many of the auto accidents that occur on the roads and freeways in San Diego, drunk driving car accidents are some of the most severe in terms of injuries suffered.
In 2008, there were 3,434 people killed and 19,659 injured in California as a result of a drunk driver. In San Diego County, 102 people were killed and 2,033 injured according to the California Highway Patrol. Work with a San Diego drunk driving accident attorney to get the compensation that belongs to you.
Compensation For Drunk Driving Accidents
In addition to stiff criminal penalties, including jail and license suspension, drunk drivers are also liable civilly for the personal injuries and property damage they cause. The law also allows the imposition of punitive damages to punish drunk drivers. Punitive damages can significantly increase the compensation a drunk driving victim receives.
Why you should hire an attorney as soon as possible?
There are clear advantages in retaining an experienced San Diego Drunk Driving Accident Attorney as soon as time permits. Promptness will enable the attorney to gather information more easily. Otherwise, as time passes after your injury, witnesses become harder to find, physical evidence may be lost or damaged, and memories may start to fade. In addition, the Statute of Limitations establishes a certain deadline after which civil claims can no longer be filed.
