- In personal Injury
No amount of monetary damages can turn back the hand of time and make a catastrophic accident caused by a drunk driver disappear. And certainly no damages can make your injuries go away. Although the remedies available under the law will not make your pain go away, it will bring you the justice and closure you need to move on.If you were injured in an accident involving a drunk driver, you need to hire an experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer to get you all of the remedies you are entitled to under the law.
Monetary and Punitive Damages in Drunk Driving Accident Cases
As a victim of an accident caused by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation through a personal injury claim. Moreover, you may be able to seek punitive damages. These types of damages are awarded in excess of actual damages. Punitive damages are intended to punish the defendant for wrongdoing, which in this case involves driving under intoxication (DUI).
If appropriate, your lawyer will seek punitive damages in order to make your case more valuable. Because insurance does not cover punitive damages, the defendant will have to pay these damages from his own pocket. Your Los Angeles personal injury lawyer will help you determine if you are eligible for punitive damages and if so, will help you get the maximum compensation for all of your drunk driving accident-related expenses and damages.
