San Diego DUI Accident Lawyer

Having to deal with the aftermath of any DUI accident is difficult, but what makes matters even worse is knowing that the entire incident could have been avoided if a drunk driver had not gotten behind the wheel. Although a drunk driver is likely to face serious criminal penalties for causing injury to another person in a San Diego car accident, a victim and his or her family may have the right to take action in civil court as well. A personal injury or wrongful death claim may be filed against a drunk driver for his or her conduct, offering the victim the opportunity to seek justice and work to recover financial compensation for medical bills, lost wages, emotional trauma and possibly more.

To find out more about your right to legal action in the wake of a DUI accident in the San Diego area, contact a lawyer at Pacific Attorney Group. Your initial consultation is free, and we represent our clients at no cost unless we successfully recover settlements or jury awards on their behalf.
