We help California families hold drunk drivers responsible

In the state of California, it is illegal to drive a vehicle while impaired by drugs or alcohol. Even so, there are many people who continue to drive impaired on the state's roads and highways, putting the public at risk. Unfortunately, it is only a matter of time before these people cause an accident.

One cannot grasp the true destruction these accidents cause until losing a family member because of a drunk driver. Of course, there is nothing that can bring the loved one back or take away the pain caused. However, our firm helps families financially recover from drunk driving accidents by holding those responsible for the accident accountable for their actions. 

Holding drunk drivers responsible often means filing a wrongful death lawsuit that seeks compensatory and sometimes punitive damages from the driver or the driver's insurance company. Compensatory damages are intended to compensate the victim's family for the financial losses they sustained, such as medical or burial costs, or loss of income.

Punitive damages, on the other hand, are sometimes awarded in excess of compensatory damages and are meant to punish the driver for violating the law.

Our firm has been assisting families of victims of drunk driving accidents for many years and we know how emotional these cases can be. The state of California holds drunk drivers criminally responsible for the destruction they cause, but the criminal charges don't help the family pay bills or put food on the table. That's where wrongful death claims come in.
