Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer in Modesto

Injured by a Drunk Driver? Call Us Today!

When you head out on the roads and highways of Modesto and the rest of California, you take your life into your hands. Driving is dangerous enough as it is, but an astonishing percentage of drivers make it even more dangerous by getting behind the wheel while drunk or high on drugs.

According to a 2012 study released by the California Office of Traffic Safety, 21.3 percent of all drivers on the roads on Friday or Saturday night in Modesto and a few other select areas of the state were found to test positive for drugs, alcohol, or a combination of both. Those who tested positive only for alcohol constituted 7.3 percent, while slightly more tested positive for marijuana.

Understanding the Facts About Drunk Driving

More than 4,600 people have died in drunk driving accidents during the past five years, and the California Highway Patrol reports that there were a total of 282 DUI accidents involving injury or death in Stanislaus County in 2010 alone.

Why You Need a Modesto DUI Accident Attorney

While you might expect that recovering financial compensation for a drunk driving accident should be a relatively straightforward matter--given that the drunk driver is nearly always obviously at fault--the fact is that the insurance company is still likely to fight to deny your reduce your claim. They may, for example, dispute the scope and severity of your injuries, or perhaps they will try to argue that you were somehow responsible for causing the accident. You have already been through enough, and should not have to fight with the insurance company over payment of your claim. Let us fight for you.
