Ventura Drunk Driving Car Accident Lawyer
Nobody wakes up and thinks, “Today is the day I become the victim of a drunk driving accident.” But if you knew how often these types of crashes happen, you might not view yourself as overly paranoid for wondering if such a thing could happen to you. Hundreds of people are injured or killed every year in alcohol-involved crashes in Ventura County. And the city of Ventura ranks 17th out of the 61 California cities of similar size when it comes to accidents involving alcohol-impaired drivers.
Getting hit by a drunk driver might sound like a slam dunk when it comes to holding the driver liable for the damage they’ve caused, but car accident claims are never that simple. Insurance companies might dispute their driver’s liability, blame the victim for being at least partially at fault, downplay the injuries suffered, try to get you to accept less than your claim is worth, or draw out the claims process with endless requests for medical evidence and documentation, hoping you’ll simply give up and give in. You shouldn’t, and with Zavala Law on your side, you won’t have to. Our attorney Matt Zavala has over a decade of experience on the side of insurance companies, so he knows how they think and act and what the appropriate way to deal with them is. Focus on getting better and getting your life back in order, and let us worry about getting you the compensation you are entitled to.
