Woodland Hills-based personal injury attorney Barry P. Goldberg has been successfully representing his clients (auto accident victims, dog bite victims, slip and fall victims) for over 35 years. His name recognition, skill, and expertise often result in requests by the media for Barry to provide legal commentary and to share his knowledge with the community.
Recently, Mr. Goldberg was cited extensively in an Auto Insurance Center, a consumer drive center for education on car insurance. The article ‘Driving Dangerously: The 4 Riskiest Impairments on the Road’ discusses four of the most dangerous examples of impaired driving. Mr. Goldberg discusses the big one, drunk / drugged driving, in detail sharing that he “sees little difference between drug and alcohol impairment behind the wheel. Cars moving at higher speeds, going the wrong way or turning into oncoming traffic are often the cause of these accidents.”
As Mr. Goldberg has seen over and over again while representing clients who were innocent victims of drunk or drugged driving accidents, “Once you’re impaired, your judgment is gone.” Contrary to what some may believe, this is even true for drivers who are under the influence of marijuana. In fact, Mr. Goldberg recently took on a wrongful death case involving a driver who had a high dose of THC in his bloodstream and was going 100 mph through an intersection. According to Mr. Goldberg, with such a high level of driver impairment, “it’s not surprising that an innocent victim was killed.”
