Drunk Driving Accidents
Sacramento Injury Attorneys Fighting For Victim’s Rights
When drunk drivers make the decision to get behind the wheel, they place themselves and everyone else on the road at risk of serious or even life-threatening injuries.
When these irresponsible drivers cause accidents, victims have the right to be fully compensated for:
- Medical care
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Any other considerations appropriate to the case
If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident that was caused by a drunk driver, it is important that you have an experienced personal injury attorney who knows the law and has the ability to protect your interests. At The Weinberger Law Firm, we are committed to helping DUI accident victims obtain the medical care and financial damages they are entitled to receive.

Punitive Damages In A California Drunk Driving Accident
Under California law, victims of drunk drivers are able to seek punitive damages. These are additional damages that are completely separate from compensatory damages for medical care and other losses. Punitive damages are intended to punish drunk drivers and discourage them from drinking and driving in the future.
These damages are not automatic, and a compelling argument needs to be made in order for them to be awarded. We review every case to determine if punitive damages are a viable consideration given the circumstances surrounding your accident and injuries.
