Campbell Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Injured By a Drunk Driver in Campbell?
Unfortunately, in the United States, impaired and drunk driving are the cause of hundreds of thousands of fatalities every year. Although various campaigns and organizations, such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), seek to end drunk driving, countless people still choose to act carelessly and get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated, making the roads dangerous for innocent victims.
Sadly, when a car accident involving a drunk driver occurs, the results are often devastating and, in the worst cases, fatal. DUI victims and their family members may be eligible to file personal injury lawsuits against at-fault drivers, which can allow them to collect monetary compensation for their losses and suffering.
Drunk driving accident victims may be eligible to pursue compensation for the following:
- Physical pain
- Emotional suffering
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages
- Loss of property
If you were seriously harmed or someone you love suffered fatal injuries as the result of a drunk driving accident, and you believe another person should be held liable, we urge you to get in touch with our Campbell drunk driving accident attorneys right away. We can examine the details of your case and determine which legal strategies can help you obtain a successful outcome in as little time as possible.

Common Injuries from Drunk Driving Accidents
In California, injuring or killing another person while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is a serious crime. However, even if the driver is determined to be a criminal due to such reckless and careless actions, the victim and his or her family is not automatically awarded compensation for their injuries or medical costs.
Drunk driving accidents commonly cause:
- Brain damage
- Missing limbs
- Multiple fractures
- Broken bones
- Scarring and disfigurement
Victims of these accidents may require various surgical procedures, ongoing physical therapy, and other ongoing care. Additionally, severe injuries can leave a person unable to work, leaving an entire family with less income than normal.
