Rely on an Experienced Long Beach Drunk Driving Accident Attorney
Although they may seem simple, drunk driving accident cases are actually complex. In personal injury drunk driving lawsuits, you must first prove the drunk driver was at fault. In addition, in a drunk driving case your attorney must establish that the driver got drunk knowing he or she would be driving, knowing the dangers of driving while drunk, and drove anyway.
In order to receive punitive damages, awarded as a punishment and deterrence, your attorney must prove the drunk driver was guilty of oppression, fraud or malice, and acted with total disregard for your rights and safety.
