When an accident or injury occurs due to a drunk driver it is anything but an accident; driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a criminal offense, punishable by fines, jail time, and loss of a driver’s license. Alcohol and drugs impair the performance of a person’s complex mental and motor functions that are essential to the safe operation of a motor vehicle. These facts are widely known and yet, unfortunately, drunk or impaired individuals still choose to operate cars, trucks, or motorcycles on a daily basis and by doing so they are also choosing to endanger the lives of innocent motorists, passengers, and pedestrians.

While the law does hold negligent parties of DUI/DWI accountable for their vicious acts, it does not hold them accountable for the financial difficulties and pain and suffering victims of alcohol-related crashes experience after the crash. Our DUI accident lawyers will hold these negligent parties accountable for the pain they have caused you and your family after driving drunk.
Our PA Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers Can Help
Our Pennsylvania DUI accident attorneys will fight aggressively for justice against the drunk driver making him or her fully responsible for his or her actions.
Determining liability in drunk driving accidents requires proof that the negligent driver was legally intoxicated under Pennsylvania standards, meaning the negligent driver’s blood alcohol content had to be .08 or higher. When there is proof that this threshold was approached, met, or surpassed it shows that the negligent driver’s impairment affected his or her judgment, causing the crash to occur. The drunk driver is considered responsible for compensating the victims of his or her negligent actions and in some cases the bar or establishment that provided the alcohol can also be held liable.
Our DUI injury lawyers want to get you the compensation you deserve after being the victim of a drunk driver. You could receive compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of income, property damage, and more.
