Drunk Driver Collisions
DRUNK DRIVING INJURIES OR DEATH
Drunk drivers are a menace and a risk to our community. They endanger the public and cause needless or serious collisions, injuries and fatalities to the motoring public: pedestrians, passengers on buses, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and other motor vehicles.
Rob Kornfeld handles cases in which individuals are injured or killed due to the negligence of drunk drivers. Cases can involve pedestrians, buses, cyclists- bike and motorcycle collisions-, automobile and other accidents involving the improper or inappropriate use of alcohol or drugs.
Most recently Mr. Kornfeld represented a husband and wife in a rear end collision in which the offending driver was drunk. Mr. Kornfeld’s clients successfully recovered the full policy limit of the negligent driver and then Mr. Kornfeld was instrumental in insuring the prosecution of the criminal defendant driver was to the fullest degree allowed by law. Restitution, education and jail time were appropriate and sought for the offending driver. Mr. Kornfeld successfully recovered additional compensation from the clients’ underinsured (UIM) coverage under their own insurance policy without the UIM insurer increasing their insurance rates and premiums since this collision was not the clients’ fault.
As a result of the collision, the wife has continued to suffer from post traumatic stress disorder. She has also continued to suffer from her injuries caused in this accident, that is, soft tissue injuries to her neck and back, all of which are causing her constant pain, discomfort and anxiety. The client is still experiencing symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder, such as, bad dreams awakening her at night and fear of being injured by another drunk driver when she is driving on the road. Our client freezes up and grips the steering wheel so tightly that she fears driving at even the speed limit. She merely fears the anticipation of getting back out on the road and simply driving. Through counseling it is hoped that one day she will make a full recovery.
Mr. Kornfeld handles cases against drunk drivers or drivers operating motor vehicles under the influence of drugs or alcohol who in turn cause a collision and harm or injure another.
