Pasadena Impaired Driving Accident Lawyer

Options for financial recovery for the victims of drunk driving accidents

Options for financial recovery for the victims of drunk driving accidents

Drunk drivers hurt at least one person in the U.S. every two minutes. What may be scarier than this statistic is the finding that about 2 in every 3 Americans will be involved in at least one drunk driving accident during their lifetime, either causing the accident or being the victim of it.1

While drunk driving accidents can cause serious injuries and significant damage, the aftermath can be that much more devastating for victims when considering the fact that the collision could have been prevented if another driver had been more responsible.

At the Law Offices of Pius Joseph, our Pasadena car accident attorney has been protecting the rights of drunk driving accident victims for nearly 30 years. Effective at holding negligent motorists accountable, our lawyers have the experience and insight victims can rely on for vigorous legal advocacy while we help them maximize their financial recoveries.

Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable

Seeking justice for the victims of drunk drivers, our lawyers are skilled at proving when intoxication or impairment played a role in causing traffic accidents. While we always tailor our services to meet the specifics of a case, as well as our clients’ needs, some of the steps we may take to establish driver impairment and negligence may include (but may not necessarily be limited to):

  • Carefully reviewing the details of police reports
  • Re-interviewing accident witnesses
  • Locating and reviewing any available surveillance footage of the accident
  • Retaining accident reconstructionists (or other experts) to back up our clients’ cases.

Additionally, our clients can count on us to deal with insurance companies and take care of any other administrative work that may be necessary to bringing their case to the best possible resolution.

Financial Recovery for Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

The severe injuries, permanent impairments and/or other losses caused by drunk driving accidents – especially those that end in death – can be devastating. Although no amount of money may ever make up for these losses, pursuing justice and compensation via a drunk driving case can be important for survivors, including families who have lost loved ones.

This is because civil drunk driving cases can provide survivors with some sense of justice, as well as some financial support to help them during their grief and recovery.

In fact, those who move forward with a case can be entitled to recoveries that include damages for (but not necessarily limited to):

  • Past medical bills and future treatment needs
  • Past and future lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Funeral and burial costs (following fatal crashes)
  • Emotional suffering
  • Loss of consortium.
