It is widely known that driving under the influence of alcohol is a crime, and that there’s never any excuse for driving drunk. Drunk drivers can cause accidents that result in serious injuries or even death. At Cruz & Associates, we’re passionate about keeping the Phoenix, Tempe, Scottsdale and Glendale communities safe from drunk drivers.

If you find yourself injured from a drunk driving accident, our experienced accident attorneys are here to fight for you and get the compensation you deserve.

What to Do if You’ve Been in a Drunk Driving Accident

It’s estimated that one in three accidents in the United States involve a drunk driver. If you’ve recently been in an accident caused by somebody you believe to be under the influence of alcohol, your first step should be to make sure they do not leave the scene and call the police immediately, if possible. Look out for proof that this person is inebriated, such as having visible alcohol in their car or staggering when they walk. Don’t hesitate to use your cell phone to record evidence of their behavior. Then, you’ll want to contact insurance companies as well as an attorney at Cruz & Associates. The sooner we can begin helping you with your case, the better.

How Our Attorneys Can Help You

Drunk drivers may be defensive or deny that they were under the influence at the time of the accident. There is no excuse for injuring somebody else due to your own negligence, so our team will be diligent in ensuring you are not held accountable for the cause of this accident.

Uncovering Details of the Case

Whether you were injured by a drunk driver in another car, or got in the car with a driver who was drunk, our team can help identify the important details that led to this accident. We’ll work with local offices to go over any video evidence and eyewitness accounts. Our skilled attorneys will put together all the necessary information a judge would need to rule in your favor.

Getting the Compensation You Deserve

After a drunk driving accident, you may be entitled to compensation for medical care, work lost, pain and suffering, and more. Juries typically have little sympathy for drunk drivers, so the compensation you need should ideally come through. With our team on your side, we will work to maximize a drunk driving accident settlement, so you have everything you need from it.
