Drunk driving costs thousands of lives a year, and is one of the most reckless acts a person can undertake, putting not just themselves but the public at mortal risk whenever they get behind the wheel. Avrek Law Firm is a passionate advocate for victims of drunk driving accidents, and is currently representing the family of one Rafael Castillo, who now hope to create a foundation in his honor to raise awareness of the dangers of drunk driving. —
Rafael Castillo, 50, of La Puente, was identified as the man killed in an accident on Gilman Springs Road on July 15th. The Riverside County Coroner stated the incident took place at 8:40, and the driver was drunk when he struck and killed Mr. Castillo in his vehicle.
A GoFundMe page has been created to help raise money for Ralph Castillo, hoping to raise $25,000 dollars in his memory to help raise awareness and try to prevent future accidents. The campaign has already raised over $8,700 toward the goal, and includes details of his life, his loves, his family and the drunk driving accident that tragically cost him his life.
A spokesperson for Avrek Law Firm explained, “We are passionate about protecting people from the dangers of the road. From our DriveSafe scholarship to our advocacy on behalf of clients like the family of Rafael Castillo outside the courtroom as well as within, we hope our clients understand that we aim to contribute as much to our community as we can. We would prefer we had less business because of safe driving, but until that day we will fight tooth and nail for justice on behalf of those wronged in cases like these, ensuring that individuals and families receive compensation for something that will inevitably affect them for the rest of their lives.”
