As part of the Greater Sacramento Area, Rocklin experiences a great deal of traffic on a daily basis. Unfortunately, at nights and particularly at the weekends, some of the people who choose to get behind the wheel of a car, SUV or pickup truck to drive through Rocklin have no business operating a motor vehicle
They’ve been drinking, but because these people are absolutely certain they are totally in control of all their faculties, they sit into the driver’s seat and take off, and that’s when bad things happen to innocent people. Too often, other road users, whether they are driving, walking or cycling, are injured by drunk drivers. When this happens, it’s time to contact a Rocklin accident attorney, at Demas Law Group.
Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a felony. Even worse than that, it’s just plain stupid and irresponsible, because too often, it’s not just the drinker or user that gets hurt. On average, more than 1,000 fatal collisions involving drunk drivers occur in California every year.
The lawyers at Demas Law Group are passionately about pursuing claims against drunk drivers, and we have been calling for stiffer penalties for offenders for years. We’d like to see mandatory ignition locks on offender’s vehicles, as well as improved alcohol treatment programs and much larger fines.
Mostly, however, when an innocent person in Rocklin—or any other part of the Greater Sacramento Area—is injured by a drunk driver, Demas Law Group will pursue the foolish, negligent driver and their insurance company to the ends of the earth to make sure victims are compensated.
As such, Demas Law Group is proud to be a sponsor of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), which was established by victims and families of victims to help stamp out the scourge of drunk driving on our roads. If you or your family has been affected by a drunk driving accident, we highly recommend getting in touch with MADD, as they offer a fantastic range of guidance and support to victims and their families.
As DUI accident attorneys, we recognize that drinking and driving is almost tacitly acceptable in today’s society, as long as people don’t get caught. We beg to differ, because all too often, we’ve seen the life-changing, devastating results of drunk driving. People who were completely innocent and helpless have been left scarred, paralyzed, brain damaged or dead, and their families have been driven to the brink of financial ruin trying to cope with treatment and medical bills.
Whether you live in Rocklin, or if you were just visiting, if you had an unfortunate “meeting” with a drunk driver and were injured as a consequence, please call us for a totally free consultation. You can reach us by calling 1-916-444-0100, or toll free at 1-888-776-0977 to ask your questions or make an appointment to come see us. Please do, because we’d be happy to help.
