Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys in Oxnard

Seeking Justice for Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

A driver who chooses to drive while intoxicated puts every other driver on the road at risk of injury or death. The criminal courts punish the drunk driver who caused your injuries, but that does not help you recover compensation for your damages. The Oxnard drunk driving accident attorneys at Crane Flores, LLP have extensive experience gaining substantial awards for victims of alcohol-related accidents. Let us help you fight to recover a damage reward and obtain justice.

  • 1,029 people killed in California in accidents where at least one driver had a BAC of 0.08% or higher

If you or a loved one has been involved in a crash caused by a driver under the influence of alcohol, confer with one of our Oxnard drunk driving accident attorneys to determine your right to seek compensation for your damages.

How Do Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents Seek Compensation?

The California civil courts let victims recover financial compensation for the injuries and other damage a drunk driver caused.

Examples of monetary damages you may be able to recover include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Punitive or exemplary damages

It is important that you consult an attorney at Crane Flores, LLP before you speak with an insurance adjuster. The insurance company tries to force accident victims to settle for the least possible amount of money. We work hard to ensure this does not happen. It is our goal to get you the most money we can in your circumstances.

Types of Injuries in Drunk Driving Accidents

When you are involved in an alcohol-related accident, a vast number of injuries can result. If you were hit by a commercial truck while driving your car or a car hit you while you were on your motorcycle, you are more likely to suffer very severe injuries. These types of accidents also often lead to fatalities.

Some of the common injuries we have handled include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Bruises, cuts, and scrapes
  • Broken bones
  • Loss of limbs
  • Paralysis
  • Spine injuries
  • Whiplash

Whether you were hit by a drunk driver while in a car, on a bicycle, or in a pedestrian accident, we are prepared to help. We guide you through the process of fighting for the compensation you are owed, step by step.

At Crane Flores, LLP, our goal is to serve you. We give you a free initial consultation and 24-hour service, and we have offices in Santa Barbara, Oxnard, and Ventura.

Commonly Asked Questions

What should I do if I am involved in a drunk driving accident?

If you are involved in a drunk driving accident, you should seek medical attention and contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. It is important to document the accident and obtain witness statements, and your attorney can help you with this process.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit for a drunk driving accident?

In California, the statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits is generally two years from the date of the accident. It is important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your rights are protected.

Can I recover damages if the drunk driver was not convicted of DUI?

Yes, you may still be able to recover damages even if the drunk driver was not convicted of DUI. In a civil lawsuit, the burden of proof is lower than in a criminal case, so it is possible to hold the driver responsible for their actions even if they were not found guilty of a crime.

What should I look for when choosing a drunk driving accident lawyer?

When choosing a drunk driving accident attorney in Oxnard, look for someone with experience handling similar cases, a track record of success, and a commitment to personalized, compassionate service. It is also important to choose a lawyer who offers a free consultation and works on a contingency fee basis, so you do not have to pay upfront costs.
