San Jose Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Compassionate Car Accident Attorney in San Jose
Driving under the influence (DUI) has become a national epidemic. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 10,000 people died in alcohol impaired crashes in 2010 alone – an alarming statistic that equates to roughly one drunk driving death every 51 minutes. Due to law enforcement efforts and various media campaigns, the dangers of driving under the influence (DUI) are clear, and yet this does not stop some people from engaging in this hazardous activity.
Criminal cases that are brought against violators might seal them away in jail or revoke their driving privileges. For victims of their negligence and recklessness, however, this is probably not enough to help victims of drunk driving accidents. Legal actions should be taken to seek proper compensation.

Compensation for Injured Victims
By establishing negligence and liability, a successful personal injury claim can allow victims and their loved ones to recover damages that resulted directly from their accidents and injuries. At our firm, we work tirelessly to clearly present the extent of a victim’s damages and find a way to get a settlement that covers them.
Some damages are considered economic – something that causes financial harm, such as the costs of medical treatment, ongoing and future care, and lost work wages. Others are considered non-economic and involve monies rewarded for non-tangible harm, such as mental shock or emotional trauma.
Two common forms of non-economic damages are:
- Punitive damages: Providing money to victims as a way to penalize the wrongdoer for drinking and driving.
- Nominal damages: Payment rewarded to victims to try to help them cope with any emotional pain they endured.
