Drunk Driving Accidents in San Francisco
San Francisco Accident Lawyer
Of the 3,612 San Francisco injury/fatal auto accidents that occurred in 2008, 317 were "alcohol involved" meaning drunk driving was involved. 8 people could have been saved and 309 spared injury if drunk drivers had simply not taken to the roads. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything to change the past and prevent a drunk driving accident from occurring in the first place. We can, however, take legal action after a drunk driving accident has occurred by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver that caused the accident.
A San Francisco accident lawyer can assist you in holding the drunk driver responsible for his or her conduct. This may be accomplished by assisting you with your insurance claim or by taking your case to civil court, if this is needed to seek a fair outcome on your behalf. Proving that the other driver was drunk is not enough. You must also prove that they caused the accident, and this may be difficult in some situations. Our firm may work with accident reconstruction professionals and others to fully investigate a claim and determine the specific factor that caused the accident to occur. In a case involving a drunk driver, this may have been the fact that the driver was speeding, ran a red light, or swerved out of his or her lane. Whatever the particular circumstances of your case, we can get to the bottom of the matter to determine exactly who should be held accountable, what your case should be worth, and what the best course of action will be to recover the money you need.
