Car and truck accidents are rarely a result of choice. Few people driving a car choose to look away at just the wrong moment or to lose control of their vehicle, but drunk driving accidents are different. At some point, an individual has to choose to drink and drive, and the results are often devastating for innocent people and families who are injured as a result of that choice.
At Bentley & More LLP, our Irvine drunk driving accident lawyers work with clients from communities throughout Orange County who have suffered at the hands of an irresponsible, careless and intoxicated driver. Our lawyers get results and hold the right people responsible.
Work with our attorneys to ensure that this does not happen again. Drivers who are intoxicated are not always first-time offenders. Certain laws work to protect you and your family.
FIGHTING FOR YOUR COMPENSATORY AND PUNITIVE DAMAGES
In most Automobile crashes, motorcycle accident or truck accident cases, our clients are seeking compensatory damages that directly address damages such as lost wages, pain and suffering, medical expenses and long-term care costs. California’s civil code, however, permits the pursuit of punitive damages when people act in a conscious disregard for public safety or engage in “despicable conduct.”
This means that if you or your family has suffered a DUI-related injury, you have the right to pursue additional financial damages. Rely on our experienced litigators for representation in drunk driving cases involving:
- Automobile crashes
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Fatal accidents
- Serious and catastrophic injuries
If you are pursuing significant compensatory and/or punitive damages, it is important to have representation on your side with a proven record of success, years of experience and the resources to fully pursue your claim. When the injuries from a car accident are life altering or even fatal, you need an advocate who is willing to fight in and out of the courtroom to make sure you and your family are protected now and in the future.
RELY ON OUR AWARD-WINNING REPRESENTATION
Our attorneys have been recognized by former clients and peers for the quality of their work. Recently, when a truck driven by a drunk driver ran through a fence and struck our client in her own yard, she sought representation from another law firm. She never got to speak to a lawyer in that office. A former client of our firm told her about Bentley & More LLP and how she would be able to not only talk with a lawyer, she would be able to meet with an award winning attorney. When you work with our office, you work with professionals who offer the experience and background to be effective and who are committed to full client service. We keep you involved, informed and prepared every step of the way.
Even if the driver of a vehicle does not cross the .08 percent blood alcohol content (BAC) threshold, he or she may still be impaired. That impairment can be shown to have played a direct result in your car accident. If you are owed damages for drunk driving-related negligence, get a fighter and proven trial lawyer on your side. Attorney Keith More is a two-time trial lawyer of the year in California.
