Injured by a Drunk Driver?

Experienced & Skilled Palm Springs Car Accident Lawyer

Have you suffered injuries that were caused by a drunk driver? If so, our team of car accident attorneys in Palm Springs is prepared to represent you. Throughout our more than 40 years of collective legal experience, our team has honed our skills and the resources needed to help individuals get the amount of compensation they deserve. In fact, we have recovered over $75 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients.

In California, drivers are found to be intoxicated if they drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of .08% or higher. Even though .08% is the legal limit, a driver can still be arrested for driving under the influence if their BAC level is not that high. If the individual's driving ability has become hindered by alcohol, they could still face DUI charges. People who choose to drive while under the influence are not only breaking the law and putting themselves in harm's way; they are also putting the lives of others at risk.

Drunk drivers are much more likely to cause accidents for a number of reasons:

  • They have a slower reaction time
  • They are less likely to stop for red lights, stop signs, pedestrians, etc.
  • Their vision is compromised
  • They are less likely to obey proper speed limits

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • They made me feel comfortable.

    “I was in a car accident that resulted in injuries, time off of work, and repeated visits to medical providers. I sought the assistance of Cohn & Swartzon to assist me in recovering my lost wages and help with paying my medical bills. The firm was so friendly and really educated me about how auto insurance and medical insurance works when you're involved in an accident. They made me feel comfortable with the process and more importantly I never had to deal with negotiating with the insurance companies for any of my medical bills. I was able to recover my lost wages, my medical expenses were paid in full, and I received a very good recovery for my pain and suffering. I have definitely recommended this law firm to family and friends many times and they all have been pleased with their service, knowledge and expertise.”

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”

  • Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care.

    “I was recently hurt in a really bad car accident. I did not have health insurance but Cohn & Swartzon helped me to receive greatly needed medical care. They also helped me get a replacement car quickly so that my wife could continue to drive to work while I was at home, getting better. I could not have done it alone, and I am very grateful to them.”

  • After Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”
