At The Law Office of Gregory W. Fox we understand the seriousness of drunk driving and the accidents that it may cause. Typically a convicted drunk driver will be punished by the court; however, this does not always provide compensation for drunk driving accident victims. As experienced Fresno DUI attorneys our goal is to aggressively pursue compensation for your injuries or if a member of your family was killed in a drunk driving accident.
Compensation for drunk driving accident victims
If you were injured due to the negligence of a drunk driver the civil court system allows you as a victim to recover financial compensation for the injuries and other damages you sustained. When seeking compensation for drunk driving accident victims we will pursue a drunk driving accident claim and may be able to obtain financial compensation in the following areas:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
If it is determined that the drunk driver was legally intoxicated at the time of the accident we may also be able to pursue punitive damages. Punitive damages will typically increase the amount of compensation because they are used to financially punish the drunk driver who caused the collision while making an example out of them.
Contact a Fresno DUI attorney
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a drunk driving car accident it is important that you contact an experienced Fresno DUI attorney immediately. It is best to do this even before speaking with an insurance adjuster. The goal of insurance companies is to pay out the least amount of money as possible, often attempting to get you to agree to a settlement offer as quickly as possible, it is in your best interest not to do this.
The Law Office of Gregory W. Fox is dedicated to helping clients recover the maximum amount of financial compensation available. You can confidentially discuss the details of your case with us and we will guide you through the entire process while protecting your rights and best interests as a victim.
Compensation for drunk driving accident victims should be left in the hands of professionals who can negotiate a full and fair settlement. If you would like to discuss the details of your case please contact us today at (559) 222-5800. In most instances an appointment can be scheduled for the same day.
