Drunk Driving Accidents
Our firm is dedicated to helping victims of drunk driving accidents throughout Bakersfield and the surrounding communities. When a car accident is caused by a drunk driver, we can investigate the matter to determine how to prove the drunk driver's responsibility. It is not enough that the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It must be proven that the driver did something or failed to do something and that this constituted a failure to act with reasonable care in the circumstances. Speeding, running a red light or following too closely may be examples of behavior that may lead to a car accident. By proving that the drunk driver was negligent and that this negligence caused the collision, we can hold that person responsible for their conduct. This can help the victim obtain a sense of closure and the financial compensation we recover may make all the difference in paying for medical bills and making up for lost wages.

About Personal Injury Law
Personal injury is a legal term that describes an injury to the mind, body or emotions of a person, as opposed to his or her property, when caused by another person's conduct. Most injuries of this kind result from negligence, which is defined as a failure to act with proper or reasonable caution or care, under the circumstances. Auto accidents are the most common cause of personal injuries as related to negligence.
Although less common, the two other potential causes of personal injuries are intentional misconduct and strict liability. Intentional wrongdoing may cause serious bodily injury or emotional trauma to a victim, as in the case of an intentional and willful attack with a firearm or other deadly weapon. Under strict liability in regard to personal injury, a defendant may be held liable (legally responsible) even if he or she did not act negligently or intentionally to cause harm. A common example of a strict liability personal injury claim would be one based upon a dog bite, where the dog owner would be held accountable even if he or she had no prior knowledge of a dog's violence or aggression.
