The Los Angeles personal injury firm explains that, due to the increase of intoxication-related vehicle accidents, the work of highly skilled personal injury attorneys is more necessary than ever.

With the increasingly widespread use of medical marijuana throughout the state of California, state officials are proposing a new technology to test and determine whether drivers are impaired.

Since 1997, the Law Offices of Burg and Brock have served victims of vehicle accidents in the greater Southern California area.

According to an article published April 6th on the Los Angeles Times, with the increasingly widespread use of medical marijuana throughout the state of California, state officials are proposing a new technology to test and determine whether drivers are impaired by the drug. The article says that new legislation would allow police officers to use an oral swab test to test for the presence of various illegal drugs as well as pain medications, although, according to Dale Gieringer, director of the California branch of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, this type of testing has not yet been proven effective to determine whether a driver is indeed impaired. According to Los Angeles based personal injury law firm, the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, the article underlines the confusion and uncertainty public officials and private citizens struggle with when it comes to addressing the striking number of motorists killed each year in Los Angeles area collisions on a day to day basis. The article points out that, between 2009 and 2013, the number of motorists’ lives lost as a result of intoxication by a wide variety of substances rose by more than 40%.     

The Law Offices of Burg and Brock explains that, due to the trauma sustained in an auto accident, many families find themselves in a state of financial hardship as a result of lost wages, accumulating medical bills, and, sometimes, funeral costs. Confusion over whether or not an at-fault driver was legally intoxicated can add to the confusion and pain. In such situations, it is typically to the benefit of the victim and his or her family to seek highly experienced and appropriate legal counsel in order to win due compensation, the law firm notes. The legal group explains that it has acquired an unrivaled reputation for winning cases for its clients; in fact, the group boasts its 98% success rate and over $100 million total accrued funds in settlements and verdicts. The firm adds that dealing with accidents caused by DUIs has long been an area of its attorneys’ expertise.

Since 1997, the Law Offices of Burg and Brock have served victims of vehicle accidents in the greater Southern California area. In addition to vehicle accident related injury lawsuits, the highly experienced legal team at the Law Offices of Burg and Brock represent victims of workplace injuries, product liability, dog bites and a wide variety of other injuries caused by negligence, they note.
