Tragic San Jose Drunk Driving Car Accident Devastates Family

Sacramento Wrongful Death lawyer

In July, a tragic drunk driving accident claimed the life of Jose Cortez Diaz. Jose was buckled up in his family's truck when it was hit by a truck driven by a drunk driver.

According to the Mercury News, Jose's father, Jesus, had pulled his truck over to the side of the road after experiencing car trouble. While Jesus was trying to unbuckle Jose, a drunk driver slammed into the truck, sending a heavy toolbox into Jesus' head, killing him instantly. CHP reports that the driver had a blood alcohol content level twice the legal limit and had fallen asleep at the wheel.

This past week, Santa Clara County launched its annual "Avoid the 13" campaign cracking down on drunk drivers. The Cortez family has been chosen as symbol of the devastating impact DUIs can have.

Statistics show that one person is killed every 30 minutes due to alcohol related crashes. Despite the frightening statistics, drivers continue to drink and get behind the wheel. Victims of these accidents suffer serious consequences - substantial medical bills, lost wages, and emotional distress. Where a wrongful death occurs - such as with the Cortez family, the loss may be overwhelming.

As a personal injury attorney concerned about the safety of California roadways, I am hopeful the Avoid the 13 campaign will make Californians think twice before they drink and drive.
