Drunk Driving Accidents

Hit By a Drunk Driver in Santa Rosa; Rohnert Park; Petaluma; Ukiah; Clearlake; or surrounding areas?


The Warnings Are Everywhere

Billboards.  TV and radio commercials.  Websites.  The warnings against drunk driving are everywhere.  You literally cannot go a day without being warned about the dangers of alcohol behind the wheel, and yet…it still happens.  Every day, people still make the same irresponsible choices.  They still decide to drive drunk.  And each time they make that awful decision, they become a great risk to the welfare and safety of the public.That includes you.

DUI: The Foundation of a Valuable Claim

Everyone knows it’s highly illegal to drive with too much alcohol in their system.  Unfortunately, many people disregard these warnings, and end up causing serious accidents because their convenience was more important to them than the safety of their hapless victims.  There’s no way to put a positive spin on this: getting hit by a drunk driver is a traumatizing event, and recovery from that can take a long time.

Now for the good news: plaintiffs pursuing an action against a drunk driver will normally have an easier time obtaining a fair settlement, given the correct representation.

Why?  Well first, drunk drivers are maligned by society.  Such recklessness is not looked upon favorably by jurors, especially jurors drawn from the honest and hard working communities of Santa Rosa; Rohnert Park; Petaluma; Ukiah; Clearlake; or surrounding areas.  Also, a plaintiff is allowed in California to seek punitive damages against the responsible party.  Those damages are above and beyond what a plaintiff can normally recover for their injuries, and they have proven to be a powerful bargaining tool.

Of course, you need someone who knows how to use those tools for maximum effect.  That’s where we come in.  Max has spent decades prosecuting claims against drunk drivers.  He knows when to push the carrier, and how hard.  Call our Santa Rosa office today, and let him help you get what you deserve.
