Despite many mediums of transportation that exist to carry people from one location to another, such as public transportation, taxis, and ride-sharing cell phone apps such as Uber or Lyft, some people still choose to drink and drive. As a result of these negligent drivers, accidents can often arise leading to significant injuries and, sometimes, even death. Although time may lessen the extent of one’s intoxication, lives are still in grave danger.
It is estimated that a drunk driving accident arises every 45 minutes, which is an accident in which the driver has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level over the legal limit of .08 percent. These accidents are extremely common in populated cities such as Los Angeles.
If you have been injured, or your loved one has been killed, by a drunk-driving accident, we recommend that you immediately hire a personal injury attorney who can help you recover for your property damage and/or your personal injuries, or the death of another. Drunk driving accidents frequently result in death or serious injuries that may not appear immediately, but may change your life forever. Although the police may take actions against such drunk drivers, these irresponsible individuals (and their insurance companies) should be held accountable for all damages and pain and suffering you endure.
Insurance companies may settle cases out of court. However, in any event, it is important to retain a law firm like KatzLaw that can negotiate the best settlement on your behalf. Failure to retain a knowledgeable and tough attorney will deprive you of sufficient compensation to cover your medical bills, pain and suffering, and property damage.
Since KatzLaw offers FREE consultations, and no fees are accessed until you recover, there is no need to go through the hassle of fighting the insurance companies yourself.
Instead, contact us immediately or call our office at (844) KATZ-LAW so we can begin your recovery process, and help you resume a normal life after a drunk driving incident!
