Los Angeles DUI Accident

This case highlights the dangers of drunk driving.  Deciding to ride as a passenger in a vehicle driven by an impaired person is just as dangerous as driving while impaired.  The risks of DUI are enormous and are never justified.  With numerous options, including Uber, traditional taxi services, and smartphones available to call anyone at any time, there is no reason for a DUI accident to occur.

Despite this, thousands of DUI related crashes are reported in Los Angeles and surrounding communities yearly.  The victims of these crashes are often seriously and sometimes fatally injured through no fault of their own.  In most cases, the DUI driver violates a traffic law or drives recklessly, causing a violent collision.

If you or a loved one have been hurt in Los Angeles DUI accident, you should seek immediate legal representation.  DUI cases have many special issues that must be handled by an experienced Southern California DUI accident attorney.  In some cases, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the at-fault driver for reckless behavior.
