Drunk Driving Accidents
When a person makes the choice to get behind the wheel after drinking, they put the lives and safety of others at serious risk. Drunk driving is a common offense throughout Los Angeles, even despite continual education and public safety announcements regarding the subject. Despite the warnings from DUI accident victims, families of victims, past DUI offenders, law enforcement officials and awareness groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) people are still willing to take the risk and operate a vehicle after consuming alcoholic beverages. If you know someone who was recently injured or killed in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver, we at Pacific Attorney Group can help you take legal action against the responsible party.
Helping DUI Victims and Families in Los Angeles
Drinking and driving is a concerning issue in the U.S. with over 11,000 fatalities caused ever year by drunk drivers alone. Drinking impairs judgment and augments reaction time. In California, a person is considered legally intoxicated if they possess a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. Many believe that even after a few drinks it is still ok to drive, however statistics show us that is not the case.
Roughly three in every ten Americans will be involved in an alcohol related auto accident.

Furthermore, injured parties may also file suit against the negligent drunk drivers that caused the accident. Our drunk driving accident and injury attorneys in Los Angeles can help you and your loved ones recover for any loses you may have incurred through a drunk driving accident.
