Los Angeles Drunk Driver Accident Attorney

If an individual chooses to drive a motor vehicle when his or her blood alcohol content (BAC) is over the legal limit, that person is violating the trust we put in other motorists to operate vehicles safely and legally.

If you are injured in an accident by someone who has been charged with DUI, you are entitled to compensation above and beyond your medical bills and expenses, and your pain and suffering. In California, the law states that not only should a drunk driver who causes a car accident be punished criminally, but also he or she should provide compensation to you and your family for pain and suffering.

These cases are complex because criminal and civil laws are involved. The lawyers at the personal injury law firm of Heller Law Firm, APC in Woodland Hills, California, have the knowledge and experience to maximize the compensation you receive for medical bills and lost wages, as well as for your pain and suffering.

We’ll Help You Get All The Compensation You Deserve

When a driver is DUI, the likelihood that he or she will be involved in an accident increases dramatically. Often, the injuries resulting from accidents caused by a drunk driver are more serious because the driver is traveling at a high rate of speed when the impact occurs.

Our Los Angeles drunk driver accident lawyers have the resources to accurately determine past and future wage losses, and any long-term medical costs, including rehabilitation, in order to obtain a full recovery. Noneconomic damages are intended to compensate you for things like:

  • Your physical injuries
  • Pain and suffering
  • Long-term nonfinancial harm such as disfigurement
  • Emotional distress caused by the accident or injury
  • In a wrongful death case, grief and loss of that person in your life

If the driver who caused the accident faces criminal charges, the civil case may be placed on hold. Meanwhile, your medical bills and lost earnings will continue to mount. Our attorneys will work with insurance companies and medical providers on your behalf to attempt to reach an agreement so you can continue to get the medical care you need and be reimbursed for your lost wages while the outcome of your civil personal injury case is pending.
