Hit By a Drunk Driver

Fighting back against drunk-driving injury and losses

In an instant, through no fault of your own, the actions of a drunk driver can subject you to serious personal injury. The Law Office of Robert B. Kopelson has the experience and the determination to secure the best recovery for your injury and losses. I am well respected among peers, judges and clients alike in the San Jose area for my hard work and my personal interest in clients’ cases.

When tragedy strikes, you need to know that a San Jose personal injury attorney is on your side and can help you get the medical care you need. I have been obtaining justice for clients in serious personal injury cases for more than 42 years.

Protecting your rights

You are entitled to pursue civil court damages for your loss, which is separate from any criminal charges the driver may face. You may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering
  • Damage to your vehicle
  • Lost wages

In addition, you may pursue punitive damages designed to punish the driver for his or her actions.

Filing a successful claim requires a thorough investigation into the cause of the accident, the state of the driver at the time, and your resultant injuries and losses. I can organize a comprehensive strategy to build the winning case you need for a fair recovery, consulting experts and gathering evidence as soon as possible.

Going after all parties at fault

Other parties may be held liable. In very limited circumstances, the person who served the drunk driver alcohol may bear liability for your injuries and losses under the law. I have the familiarity with the law and the professional determination to go after any and all liable persons to get you just compensation. Through my reliable, trusted legal advice and representation, I have helped many victims of drunk drivers assert their legal rights with as little additional stress as possible. Clients looking for a car accident attorney in San Jose and elsewhere have been impressed with the skill and dedication of my firm, as indicated by the many positive client and peer assessments of my services.
