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
  • Rehabilitation
  • 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.

“I did not have to worry about anything”

I was never involved in an auto accident. I was very nervous. You and your office staff always took the time to answer my questions. It was very comforting to know that you were my lawyer.

- Debra Barr

You agreed to represent me for my automobile accident when other attorneys turned the case down. I was thrilled with the settlement you negotiated. I will tell all my family and friends about you.

- Suzanna Klipach

My friend told me that [MyPhillyLawyer] was a very reliable company and that they take care of everything. Attorney Dean I. Weitzman was always on top of everything. He was very efficient and he made me really comfortable. I didn't know what to do and how it all works. He was very helpful. I did not have to worry about anything. They did it all very professionally. There were no problems whatsoever.

- Tatiana Bardina

What impressed me most is that I called him [Dean I. Weitzman] and told him I wanted to come and see him. He said "No, you were in an accident and I will come and see you." He came the next day. We've been friends ever since. I call him if I have a problem, and he calls me back. I tell him you are like my son. I never had to go anywhere on my own. He always said "I will pick you up and take you there." That's what I love about him.
