Aggressive Southern California DUI Accident Injuries Attorneys

DUI accident lawsuitThe prevalence of drunk driving in California may have decreased over the past few years, but the percentage of accidents still remains a big issue in road safety. Despite the efforts of advocacy groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), DUI accidents remain alarmingly high in the state. In 2011, 180,212 people were arrested for drunk driving in California.

Drunk driving also remains one of the main causes of motor vehicle related fatalities in the state. More than 63 percent of automobile collision fatalities are caused by drunk drivers. This means that more 1,800 Californians are killed each year by intoxicated drivers.

The Los Angeles DUI accident attorneys at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas have the experience, passion and resources to help DUI accident victims recover the full compensation they are entitled to under the law. We fight to make sure innocent victims are compensated for the selfish actions of DUI offenders.

California Law

Under California law, any individual who causes an accident while driving under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances generally faces two types of litigation – criminal and civil. A drunk driver may face criminal charges and be sent to prison if found guilty of the crime. These criminal sanctions and punishments play an integral role in deterring alcohol-related accidents. Victims may also pursue a civil action against the offending driver. This means that the victim can seek compensation from the negligent DUI motorist who caused the accident.

Sadly, civil liability may be of little comfort to those who have suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one in an alcohol-related accident. Although financial compensation may be of little comfort to DUI accident related victims and their loved ones, it will help bring a sense of justice and closure. A motorist who is convicted of a DUI is liable to pay for all resulting damages.

Damages Available for DUI Accident Victims

The legal team at the Law Offices of Samer Habbas understands the life-altering injuries and devastation caused by DUI related accidents. We will work tirelessly to make sure that the drunk driving offenders are held liable for the injuries suffered by the victims.

Depending on the specific facts of your case, we will help you and your loved ones recover compensation for:

  • Related medical and hospital bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional and mental trauma
  • Disfigurement
  • Physical impairment
  • Property damage
  • Loss of enjoyment of life

From the start of my untimely and horrific fall at the most unsafe flight of stairs. Which was in a privately owned complex, where by the way, the owners truly believed they were, as they say, “above the the law”. The MOST WISE DECISION I MADE WAS TO CONTACT THE HABBAS LAW FIRM! This firm from the initial meeting (they came to me!!) Photos were taken of all aspects of this poorly kept complex and a promise I shall never forget! They promised to take great care of me with medical professionals, fully inform me of all the correspondence with the opposing party/insurance company. Most of all have me compensated for the pain and misery the on site owners daughter put me and my daughter through! True to their word, SAM HABBAS AND ASSOCIATES LAW FIRM DID JUST THAT! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FIRM TO ANY AND ALL PERSONS WHO NEED A TRUSTWORTHY PROFESSIONAL LEGAL TEAM!!! From the initial meet and consultation, the scheduling of medical appointments, the medical professionals, the wonderful receptionists at HABBAS LAW FIRM, my paralegal SUMMER, and of course my team of THE BEST OF THE BEST LAWYERS! 5💫 rating! By the way, settlement negotiations came and in a matter of minutes HABBAS LAW FIRM upped and secured a handsome settlement. Thank you 🙏 to all the most amazing team whom I shall always recommend, and appreciate! P.s This poorly managed complex was forced to make all repairs and changes to meet safety code!👍🏼Amanda Inland Empireread more

I had such a great experience with Samer Habbas & Associates from the very beginning of working with them. The process was so easy from the start. They came to me to get the details of the accident, they asked me for a few additional documents which I scanned in, and then they took it over completely. In a time of need, they were amazing with taking all the burden off of me and eventually getting me a great result as well. I would highly recommend them to anyone.read more

I was involved in a major car accident in 2015 and was referred to this law firm by an acquaintance. Samer and his team handled my case for over 3 years. During this time, I felt at ease knowing that I was in good hands. I was able to move on with my life and let my attorney’s office handle the rest. Samer and his team educated me on what to expect in the process and guided me through every step of the way until the settlement. They were always professional and quick to respond to my requests and worked tirelessly to get the compensation I deserved.I highly recommend this law firm to anyone seeking legal counsel on auto accidents. A huge thank you to Samer, Corbin, Mike and the rest of the team!read more

I was in an accident a week before Christmas, my car was totaled and my arm was broken in several places. Therefore I was in need of a couple of pretty serious surgeries. Having never been in a car accident and being completely lost as to where I even begin, I was referred to Samer' Law Firm by a co-worker. Within hours of being released from the hospital they had sent someone to my home to take a statement, to began what was a seamless process that surprisingly required very little from me which I was thankful for considering I was out of work for the next 5 weeks with my injuries. I worked closely with Selena Bazan and Mike Habbas, they were both extremely patient in explaining what was completely a foreign process to me. Throughout the entire case I had plenty of questions or needed clarification, they were a phone call or email away to answer and to take the time to explain any and everything to me in detail and address any concern I had. Even when returning back to work if there was something that needed to be taken care of in person they came to me at my office. I was warned by several people who have been in accidents how matters like this can take months on months, even years. As of today my case is resolved! While maintaining professionalism and ensuring that I knew how important my case was to them, I always felt as though they genuinely cared for my well-being and that I received both the medical attention, after care and compensation I deserved. I couldn't be happier with the outcome and the treatment that I received from Samer habbas and Associates.read more
