What It's Like To Be Injured

Drunk Driving Injury Attorneys in Seattle

Passionately Pursuing Justice for Victims of DUI Accidents

Drunk driving is one of the most selfish, dangerous, and risky things one can ever do. Though people are constantly educated about the dangers of drunk driving, for some reason, people continue to put themselves and others at risk every day. This horrible phenomenon leaves all involved incredibly injured, if not killed. If you or a loved one have suffered at the hands of a drunk driver, it is essential you enlist in the help of a Seattle drunk driving accident lawyer such as ours at Kornfeld Law immediately.

Seattle drunk driving accident lawyer Rob Kornfeld handles cases in which individuals are injured or killed due to the negligence of drunk drivers.

We'll even come to you at a location that's most convenient.

Our firm is dedicated to fighting for the rights of victims of drunk driving because we feel this injustice should be corrected as best as possible. Whether you are in need of monetary compensation for your costly medical bills, loss of work and wages, or punitive damages such as pain and suffering, we want to advocate on your behalf.

As a victim, you will be approached by an insurance adjuster who will want to hear your take on the situation. However, the adjuster will not be looking out for your best interests--our legal team will ensure your words aren’t used against you. Our Seattle DUI accident attorneys won’t allow you to be taken advantage of after the horrific experience of being in an accident due to a drunk driver.

Should I Sue a Drunk Driver?

In the wake of a serious accident, you may be wondering if you should sue the drunk driver who hit you or your loved one. After all, you and your family are likely navigating a series of new and unexpected challenges, including obtaining and paying for medical care, keeping up with daily expenses and bills while you are out of work, and dealing with the immense pain and suffering these accidents cause—is it really worth it to take legal action against the drunk driver?

In fact, suing a drunk driver may be the best way to recover compensation for your damages. When someone acts negligently—and driving while intoxicated is one of the most egregious examples of negligence—you have the right to collect compensation for any harm and/or losses they cause you. Suing a drunk driver and seeking the rightful recovery you are owed is separate and apart from any criminal charges that may be brought against the drunk driver; the purpose of a civil lawsuit is to provide victims (and their loved ones) with appropriate compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, disability, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other hardships caused by the negligent person or party. That being said, a successful civil lawsuit can also provide you and your family with a much-needed sense of justice as you work to get back on your feet and move forward with your life.

While suing a drunk driver can be a somewhat lengthy process, it does not have to be an exceptionally challenging one. At Kornfeld Law, we can guide you through the entire process from start to finish, handling all of the legal complexities and proceedings so that you can simply focus on healing. We offer contingency fees, meaning you do not owe any attorneys’ fees until we successfully recover compensation on your behalf.

Real Results for Real Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents in Seattle

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 ensuring 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 by 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.
