Car Accident Attorneys at Piccuta Law Group Settle Car Accident Case Against Drunk Driver
This month, the Piccuta Law Group settled a car accident case for a woman who was hit by a drunk driver. The client was traveling southbound on Del Monte Boulevard in Seaside, California. As the client proceeded through the greenlight at the intersection of Del Monte Boulevard and Canyon Del Rey Boulevard her vehicle was broadsided by a drunk driver who ran a red light. The client, who was elderly, suffered injuries to her head, neck, and back. The client hired the car accident attorneys at the Piccuta Law Group to help her with her car accident case.
Since the at-fault driver was under the influence, she violated CVC § 23152(a), which states that “it is unlawful for a person who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage to drive a vehicle.” The police report concluded that the drunk driver caused the collision “by being in violation of 23152(a). In other words, because the driver was drunk she was responsible for the crash.
The client went to Doctors on Duty after her headaches and neck pain did not improve. She was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome and a cervical strain a.k.a. whiplash. The client underwent two months of physical therapy for her cervical strain. The client also had a brain MRI after she described a burning sensation in her brain and confusion in her thought processes. The MRI ruled out brain bleeds and other objectives signs of damage from an acute trauma. Thankfully, the client fully recovered from her injuries.
The Piccuta Law Group was able to negotiate a favorable settlement for the client. The client was very satisfied with the service she received from our car accident attorneys and posted the following review on google:
“I was the victim of a DUI hit and run. Fortunately the police caught the driver of the other car. My car was totaled and I was in physical therapy for a few months. My sister who lives in Southern California said I should get an attorney. She found Piccuta Law Group and recommended I call. She gave them my number and Tony Piccuta called me. He was courteous, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Tony listened attentively to my story and was very up front about what would be expected of me and what I should expect from him if he felt I had a case. I did. Piccuta Law Group handled every detail from beginning to end making a stressful situation tolerable and transparent to me. I put everything into Tony’s capable hands and was very pleased with the outcome. I recommend Piccuta Law Group to anyone looking for an honest and high quality attorney. You won’t be sorry.”
