Drunk driving accidents are not accidents at all. Despite all the prohibitions our society has placed against drunk driving, people still make the decision to get behind the wheel of a car after they have been drinking. Sadly, it is often people in other vehicles who pay the price.
In 2008, alcohol was a factor in at least 32% of traffic fatalities. Every year since 1970, alcohol has caused the deaths of over 30% of those killed in motor vehicle crashed in the United States. There is no excuse for driving drunk, and anyone who so thoughtlessly puts other people at risk deserves to be held accountable. If you or a loved one were injured by a drunk driver, attorney Tom Reinecke can secure justice for your family.
In California a drunk driver can face two separate legal proceedings:
The proceedings in a criminal trial help decide what punishment is appropriate for someone who injured another while driving drunk. Often the offender is punished with fines, probation, or even jail time. A civil case is filed by an attorney like Tom Reinecke, and its purpose is to gain fair monetary compensation on behalf of the victim of a drunk driver.
Attorney Tom Reinecke will work hand-in-hand with the district attorney to ensure that the drunk driver is held responsible in both civil and criminal court.
