Getting into a car accident is scary, but it is something that most people experience in their lifetime. What is even scarier is being involved in an accident with someone who is impaired by alcohol. Statistically, these accidents are worse when it comes to injuries and fatality rates.
At the Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, our firm knows that all vehicle accidents are dynamic. Each one tells a different story. Our knowledgeable and experienced team will get to work on your case the moment you walk in the door. When you need a drunk driving accident attorney in San Diego, we will work to recover the compensation you need for all of your accident-related expenses.
For the latest reporting year in California, the state saw 25,147 injuries and 1,360 fatalities in alcohol-related traffic incidents. Those are staggering numbers. Over 27% of all traffic fatalities in the state were attributed to alcohol.
Why are these cases so difficult?
Because, there are so many factors that enter the picture. As with most accidents, fault must be determined. Just because a person is drunk does not necessarily mean that they were at fault in the accident.
Yes, there are times when a person is arrested for DUI but not cited for being at fault in an accident. If you were injured in an accident and this happens, you are going to need a strong attorney to be by your side so you are not stuck without the coverage you need from insurance companies.
We also know that your claim can be drawn out in these cases because if a person is cited for DUI, they will be battling criminal charges while you are trying to get their insurance to compensate you for your expenses.
You cannot afford a delay in payment.
When people under the age of 21 are drunk and cause an accident, you have other options to consider.
Who sold them the alcohol? Even though the state’s dram shop and liquor laws have been mostly stripped away, they still remain when it comes to being able to recover damages from those who sell alcohol to minors (bartenders, servers, store clerks) who then cause damages and injuries.

Bruno, we will work tirelessly to secure the compensation you need for your expenses. This includes medical bills, property damages, lost income, as well as pain and suffering damages.
