Drunk Driving Accidents Are Common Over Labor Day
Drunk driving – especially over Labor Day Weekend – is a serious concern in Southern California and elsewhere. Drunk driving accidents can involve numerous vehicles on the roadway and can lead to serious injuries for everyone in those vehicles. If you or someone you love has been the victim of a drunk driving accident over Labor Day Weekend, you have certain legal rights. One of those is the right to pursue monetary compensation for your physical injuries and damages resulting from a collision.
At Cohen & Cohen, our experienced Southern California personal injury attorneys take pride in providing zealous legal representation to victims of drunk driving accidents and other serious accidents. If you choose us to represent you, we will fight for your right to full compensation for your injuries, and we are not afraid to litigate your legal matter and take it to trial if needed.
HOW DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENTS OCCUR
Drunk driving accidents occur when motor vehicle drivers choose to operate their vehicles while they are illegally under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. Usually, this means that the offending driver has a high blood alcohol concentration or has failed chemical testing.
In cases when an at-fault driver is convicted of DUI or receives a reckless driving citation, that alone is usually sufficient to establish fault in a personal injury matter that arises out of the collision. However, the accident victim will still need to establish that he or she suffered physical injuries as a direct and proximate result of the accident. Possible damages include economic compensation for medical bills and lost wages, along with non economic damages for pain and suffering and possible lost life enjoyment.
