DUI Claims and Personal Injury Law
If convicted of a DUI, an intoxicated driver will already face criminal charges. A DUI-related personal injury claim is waged outside of the civil proceedings.
Though the intoxicated driver is the primary party at fault, others may be held partially responsible for the accident. In Pennsylvania, those who furnish alcohol to drunk drivers share in third party liability. For example, if a bartender continues to serve a visibly drunk patient, he or she could be found partially liable for any ensuing accidents. Even “social hosts,” such as those who provide alcohol free of charge, could have third-party liability. Our attorneys can identify all responsible parties and persue compensation accordingly.
Our lawyers are passionate about helping those who have been injured because of the reckless and negligent acts of others.
Do You Have a Viable DUI Accident Injury Claim?
If you were involved in an accident in which the other driver had a BAC (blood alcohol content) level of 0.8% or above, you likely have a valid claim. However, there could be other significant factors in your case. For example, your own driving errors could have contributed to the accident. Pennsylvania is a modified comparative fault state. This means that you can still recover damages for your accident, even if you were partially at fault.
