Los Angeles and Mission Viejo Injury Attorney with 40+ Years of Experience

drunk employee leaves a work party and causes an injury accidentSouthern California has a high incidence of DUI related accidents that involve injuries to other drivers. Those who are injured in these accidents have the right to hold those who drive under the influence accountable for their actions, and the injuries they cause. Injuries in these cases can be quite severe, and in some cases fatal resulting in the wrongful death of those who were unfortunate enough to come into contact with a DUI driver.

My name is Rivers Morrell and after more than 40 years of experience as an accident and injury attorney I can tell you DUI drivers wreak havoc on those with whom they share the road as well as their families.

A DUI Driver Will Often Leave the Scene of an Accident

Unfortunately here in Southern California, a DUI driver who is under the influence of alcohol or another substance will often flee the scene. In many cases they are later identified and charged by law enforcement, but what happens when the DUI driver is never found? Hit and run injury cases require an attorney with extensive experience and expertise. It is possible to recover for your medical bills, lost wages, and the painful experiences you have been forced to endure by filing a claim under your own automobile insurance under the UM/UIM component of your coverage.

My name is Rivers J. Morrell, III and I have been an injury attorney based in Southern California for more than 40 years. I can tell you from vast experience that many of my clients are surprised by the response from their own insurance company when they contact them after being injured in a hit and run accident. They no longer feel like they are “in good hands” or that their insurance agent is “on their side.” It takes a strong track record of success to stand up to the insurance companies and hold them accountable for the policy upon which you have made payments, often for years without a claim.

What Should You Do After a Car Accident?

Alcohol is not the only substance which can cause a driver to be considered “under the influence.” Recreational drugs and prescription narcotics will impair one’s ability to safely drive, and can lead to car accidents resulting in injury.

It is not uncommon for accidents sustained from an accident with a DUI driver to result in permanent injuries. These types of cases will often require a “Life Care Plan” to ensure that you have the resources, medical treatment and therapy, as well as modifications made to your home and vehicles to accommodate the changes resulting from paralysis or other personal injury.
