San Diego Drunk Driver Injury Lawyer

You could be the most conscientious driver in the world, wear your seat belt at all times and obey every traffic rule on the road. However, what you can’t do, is control the poor choices of others. If another driver chooses to drink and drive, and you or a loved one have the misfortunate to be in his or her path, there is little that can provide protection. The results can be catastrophic or even fatal.

At the San Diego Injury Law Firm of Phillips and Pelly, we do everything we can to help individuals and families after a drunk driving accident. Our team of drunk driver injury attorneys are tireless in our pursuit of accountability, financial compensation for injuries, and peace of mind.

If you and your family are grieving the pain, injury or wrongful death of a loved one because of the recklessness of another person or entity, it is understandable to feel angry and overwhelmed. While every situation is different, some find closure and the help that they may need to take care of either themselves and/or their family by obtaining compensation from the people responsible for the irreversible injuries or untimely death of their loved one.

Other Types of Accidents

Types of Drunk-Driver Accidents

Although drunk-driver accidents are most commonly associated with automobiles, this isn’t always the case.

Drunk-drivers can wreak havoc, causing serious accidents while operating boats, jet-skis, other watercraft, motorcycles, commercial trucks, semi-trucks or ATV’s, to name a few.

They injure victims who are pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, automobile passengers or drivers, water-skiiers, other boaters or passengers and the like.

If you or a loved one have been seriously injured or killed by a Drunk Driver, you deserve the opportunity to be justly compensated for your loss, pain and suffering, medical bills and future care. At the Law Office of Phillips and Pelly we are here to listen and help determine whether you have a case. The call is free, and we are happy to help.

Filing a Drunk-Driver Injury or Wrongful Death Claim

Filing an injury or wrongful death claim, or pursuing a lawsuit, is never an easy decision. However, when you are fully aware of your legal rights and options, you can be confident in the choice that you make.

Whether you should file a lawsuit depends on the circumstances of the injuries. Top California drunk driver and wrongful death lawyer Oliver Pelly, can help you to evaluate what happened and determine whether you have valid grounds for taking legal action.

In many cases, the injured or their family may decide to take legal action so that they can seek compensation for a wide range of damages associated with financial, physical, and emotional losses. If you are interested in potentially receiving compensation for your injuries and care, or loss of a loved one, call or email the Law Office of Phillips and Pelly, for a Free Case Evaluation. We are here to help.

Do you have to pay for representation?

No. We handle all cases on a contingency basis, with a no fee until we win guarantee. You only pay when we recover money on your behalf. Our fees are based on a percentage of the final settlement we are able to recover for you.

Types of Compensation to Relieve Your Losses

If you or someone you love has been in an accident involving a drunk driver, you can expect the driver will be prosecuted in criminal courts. Aside from feeling a sense of justice, how does that benefit you or your loved one after an accident? If a drunk driving car accident has resulted in injury or wrongful death you have a right to pursue compensation from the drunk driver.

While no sum of money can undo the damage caused by a drunk driver, it can provide for the financial security, essential after a serious injury or loss of a loved one. A personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit can provide you and your family with compensation for lost wages/lost income, medical expenses (or funeral expenses), pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, and other damages.

Additionally, we look not only to your immediate and short-term needs, but most importantly, toward the care we anticipate you will need for the rest of your life. During the course of your case, we consult with medical experts to detail the specific damages, and what that means to your future.

We then seek compensation for things such as:

  • Intensive care or nursing home care
  • Assisted living aides
  • Modifications to the home or vehicles
  • Wheelchairs, lifts and medical equipment
  • Psychiatric/psychological care
  • Lost earning capacity and vocational retraining
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost enjoyment of life
