Berriz Law Group Drunk Driving Accidents


There are strict laws in California against drinking and driving. Law enforcement is actively on the lookout for impaired drivers and quick to take action to get them off the road. Unfortunately, they cannot be everywhere to prevent disasters from happening.

Drunk driving accidents often cause severe to fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has been hit by an impaired driver and seriously or fatally injured, you need the assistance of an experienced Ventura County personal injury attorney who is highly motivated to assist you in recovering the full compensation you deserve.


According to statistics, every hour of every day two people die in alcohol-related driving accidents. Although accidents caused by drinking and driving are reportedly decreasing, still over a million are injured each year due to drunk driving. The ability to observe other vehicles and the environment and respond appropriately can be so diminished by alcohol that the drunk driver can’t stay in one lane, doesn’t stop at stop signs or red lights, doesn’t see pedestrians until too late or may cross over to drive head-on into on-coming traffic.

The criminal court system enforces the laws against drinking and driving, but this doesn’t usually help the drunk driver’s victims to deal with the aftermath of an accident. Someone must pay for the destroyed vehicle or the medical expense of treating the injuries. It takes a skilled drunk driving accident lawyer to investigate and gather the evidence and file a claim for damages on behalf of the victims or their surviving family.

If you are a primary source of income for the family and you cannot continue to work because of your injuries, you can claim that lost income and any future loss of income along with compensation for your pain and suffering.

You need aggressive representation by a knowledgeable car accident attorney at the firm who understands the anxiety and stress you and your family might be experiencing and is committed to ensuring that all damages are fully recovered.
