Drunk Driving Accidents
Philadelphia Drunk Driver Accident Lawyers
Driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs is not just a crime; it is using a weapon. Every year this “weapon” maims and kills thousands of innocent people. Because of this, Pennsylvania and states across the country have passed laws that deal specifically with drunk driving accident cases.
At Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman, P.C., home of MyPhillyLawyer, we focus a significant part of our personal injury practice on motor car accidents. This work includes valuable experience handling drunk driving cases and a comprehensive knowledge of the laws that apply to them.
If you suffered serious injuries or a loved one was killed by a drunk driver, contact our Philadelphia drunk driver accident attorneys to learn how we can help. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case and legal options.
What Compensation Could I Receive?
Under Pennsylvania law, drinking and driving victims are one of the primary exceptions to Pennsylvania insurance law’s limited-tort rules. In these accidents, even people who do not carry full-tort coverage on their vehicles are considered eligible for full-tort compensation. Compensation may include:
- Pain and suffering
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Life care needs
- Punitive damages
As personal injury attorneys, we prepare every case as if going to trial is the only option. In doing so, we help to ensure that we will be able to maximize your results, regardless of whether your case is resolved through settlement or court.
Dram Shop Laws and Compensation
Dram shop laws and liability may apply to anyone — bartenders, waitpeople, homeowners or others — who serves alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person. At MyPhillyLawyer, our car accident lawyers know how to investigate and establish the facts necessary to support these claims for additional compensation.
