Seeking Maximum Damages to Compensate You and Punish the Drunk Driver

In personal injury and wrongful death claims involving alcohol-related accidents, the attorneys at our firm investigate all possible sources of financial recovery. Whether you were the driver or a passenger in a car struck by a drunk driver, or you were a passenger in a vehicle driven by a drunk driver, you deserve compensation for your losses.

We seek compensatory damages from drunk drivers for injuries and deaths caused by alcohol-related accidents. Compensatory damages are designed to make up for the actual physical and financial harm caused by the accident. These damages can include money for pain, discomfort, suffering, disability, medical expenses, wage loss and other costs of a serious injury or wrongful death.

We also seek punitive damages, those meant to punish the drunk driver and deter others from driving while intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Because alcohol-related accidents frequently cause such serious injuries as paraplegia, quadriplegia, brain damage, spinal cord injury or the loss of a limb, the drunk driver’s insurance often is sometimes not enough to cover the victim’s losses. Our lawyers investigate and pursue claims against the injured person’s own underinsured and uninsured driver’s coverage when possible to help bridge the gap between compensation and expenses.

Dram Shop, Liquor Liability and Social Host Lawsuits in Pennsylvania

In addition to claims against the drunk driver and other insurance companies, our firm investigates all alcohol-related accidents for potential dram shop or liquor liability. In Pennsylvania, bars, taverns, stop-and-go locations and other establishments that sell alcohol can be sued if an accident resulted from their illegal sales. Bars who sell to minors, fail to check IDs or continue to serve obviously intoxicated customers may be responsible for an accident that results from their negligence.

Social hosts, such as homeowners who throw alcohol parties for teenagers, can also face liability for injuries and deaths caused by an intoxicated minor who was drinking at their home.
