Why Do I Need Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys In Los Angeles?
You may be wondering if you can handle your Los Angeles drunk driving accident case on your own without the help of a DUI accident attorney. The answer is that unless you are a lawyer yourself, it will be virtually impossible for you to recover all of the money you are entitled to under California law to compensate you for your injuries.
There are two reasons for this:
- Insurance companies will not respect you if you don’t hire a lawyer
- It’s dangerous to talk to the at-fault party’s insurance company
Insurance Companies Won’t Respect You If You Don’t Hire A Lawyer
Drunk drivers are legally liable for injuries they cause while drunk driving. This is because California law holds those who injure others via negligence liable for the injuries. In effect, what this means that if you are injured by a drunk driver, the drunk driver’s insurance company is legally obligated to compensate you for all of your damages up to the policy limits.
However, just because the insurance company has a legal obligation to pay you what you deserve for your injuries doesn’t mean they simply will if you just ask. You see, the only way to actually enforce the law here is by filing a lawsuit if the insurance company refuses to pay you what you’re entitled to. Of course, the insurance company knows you can’t win such a lawsuit if you don’t have a drunk driving accident attorney. The insurance company has a lot of money. They can afford lawyers to defend them in court. So, if you don’t have a lawyer, they know you have no way of enforcing the law. As a result, they will only offer you a small fraction of what you actually are entitled to for your injuries. You simply will not receive a fair settlement offer if you don’t have a lawyer.
This is where Nadrich & Cohen come into play. We have been handling drunk driving accident claims for over 30 years. Insurance companies have files on us. Those files tell them that when we take them on in court, we win. So, they know that it’s a waste of their time and money to take us on in court. They know that if they spend money on lawyers to take us on in court, they’ll lose and have to pay our clients what they deserve anyways. So, because of this, almost all of our cases settle out of court. The insurance companies know it will cost them less to pay our clients what they deserve out of court instead of paying lawyers to represent them in court, losing in court, and having to pay our clients what they deserve anyway.
Studies show that those who file a personal injury claim like claims involving DUI accidents end up recovering far more money for their injuries when they have a lawyer than when they don’t, even after attorney fees are taken into account. The best thing you can do to maximize your recovery in a personal injury case like a drunk driving accident case is to hire the auto accident lawyers at Nadrich & Cohen.
It’s Dangerous For You To Talk To The At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company
Talking with the at-fault party’s insurance company is one of the worst things you can possibly do if you are an injured DUI accident victim. You see, the at-fault party’s insurance company is not your friend. Their goal is not to make sure you get all of your damages paid for. Their goal is to preserve their own profit margin. They will go to great lengths to preserve their own profit margin. Insurance companies are even known to train adjusters to get injury victims on a phone call while they’re being recorded then trick injury victims into saying things they can use to pay the injury victims less money or no money at all.
Insurance adjusters will try to manipulate you into saying things which imply that you were partially at fault for your motor vehicle accident which involved a driver with an illegal blood alcohol concentration. Insurance adjusters will try to trick you into saying things which imply that your injuries are not actually as severe as you are claiming. They will try to trick you into saying these things so they can pay you less money, and it is very easy to be tricked by them. You could make a mistake as simple an innocuous as replying “fine” when an adjuster asks how you’re doing. The insurance company could then use that statement as evidence that you’re not actually hurt as badly as you’re claiming to be.
We have been dealing with insurance companies since 1990. We know every trick they have up their sleeves and we will not fall for those tricks. If you’ve been injured in a car accident involving a driver with a blood alcohol content over the legal limit, call us today so we can handle all communications and negotiations with the at-fault party’s insurance company for you. We will make sure you don’t have to worry about incriminating yourself.

What Compensation Is Available After Drunk Driving Crashes?
If you have been injured in a drunk driving crash, you may be eligible to receive financial compensation for:
You are likely facing medical bills already as a result of your drunk driving wreck. You might have also sustained severe injuries in your drunk driving accident, meaning you will need future medical treatments which will generate yet more medical expenses. Our lawyers can help you recover financial compensation for any past or future medical bills which are related to your drunk driving crash in Los Angeles.
Loss Of Wages
Many of our clients are unable to work for a period of time due to their injuries. Sometimes our clients are simply hurt too badly to work. Other times our clients have to take time off from work in order to attend medical appointments. Whatever the reason for you missing work, if it’s related to your drunk driving accident, we can help you recover compensation for the wages you were unable to earn.
Loss Of Earning Capacity
Many of our clients are hurt so badly that they’re unable to ever work again because of their injuries. Other times, our clients are still able to work, but just not in the field they used to. This inability to work can cause a loss or reduction of earning capacity. We can help you recover money to compensate you for the damage to your earning capacity.
It’s very common for vehicles to be severely damaged or even totaled in drunk driving accidents. This is because drunk drivers often drive at an extremely high speed, meaning extreme forces are generated in the accidents that result. We can help you get the repair or replacement costs for your vehicle paid for, and we can help you get compensation for the loss of or damage to any other personal property in your vehicle at the time of the drunk driving accident.
Pain And Suffering
Because drunk driving accidents often involve high speeds, they often involve serious injuries which cause a lot of physical pain and mental suffering. This pain and suffering is something our attorneys can help you recover financial compensation for.
Unfortunately, sometimes our clients have lost a loved one due to a drunk driving accident. Fatal drunk driving accidents are an unfortunate reality of life. If you lost a loved one because of a drunk driver, we can file a wrongful death claim seeking compensation for your loved one’s medical bills, funeral costs, burial costs, pain and suffering. Those who lost loved ones to fatal car accidents can also seek compensation for the loss of their loved ones’ love, companionship, income and household services.
