DUI Victim/Plaintiff Attorney In Los Angeles & Carlsbad

Are You A DUI Victim?

Driving under the influence (DUI), also known as operating under the influence (OUI), involves using a vehicle while under the influence of substances, alcohol, or certain medications. The risk involved in driving under the influence is inadvisably high. Mistakes while under the influence can be physically threatening for everyone involved and can even be fatal. Unfortunately, these accidents are not uncommon. That’s where the Law Offices of Brett C. Drouet hope to make a big difference.

What Should A DUI Victim Do?

In any situation where someone has been wrongfully injured due to the recklessness or negligence of another, it is critical to seek the assistance of a professional DUI defense lawyer. A DUI victim attorney from the Law Offices of Brett C. Drouet will make sure that you are compensated fairly for the reckless act of a DUI. We do so by providing a comprehensive investigation and documentation of your case. Doing so will ensure we bring a robust and firm case to the table upon filing your claim. Our DUI accident injury compensation lawyer will hold the person who injured you accountable and seek the maximum settlement possible.

What Will Happen To The Other Driver?

If you are the victim of a DUI accident, you will want to know how the person responsible for your injuries is being held accountable for their negligent actions. Generally, if there are disagreements about who is liable coming from the reckless driver or their insurance company, cases may not settle and must go to trial to resolve.

If a case goes to trial, the victim will be paid compensation directly by the defendant rather than by the state of California. However, we understand that fines are not always the only punishment necessary, especially in severe cases. That’s why our attorneys will push as aggressively as possible for the proper penalty, including jail time. Especially if this is someone’s second or third offense, our firm will see to it that the driver is met with much sterner penalties.

What Will I Be Compensated For?

You may have been seriously hurt or even experienced a life-changing injury. If this is the case, life is certainly full of challenges right now. We understand how scary and overwhelming that can be. However, there is still much we can recover. If it can be established that the offending party was under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the accident, then the injured party (most often their insurance) can usually recover the cost of all expenses.

Expenses to be recovered may include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Incapacitation or disability
  • Medical treatment expenses
  • Property damage expenses
  • Scars or disfigurement
  • Damaged relationships
  • Loss of capacity for earned income

Further, due to the nature of DUI accidents, punitive damages may be awarded in DUI accident cases to further punish the convicted defendant. An experienced DUI victim lawyer will be able to assist with seeking punitive damages as well.
