The Philadelphia, PA, DUI and DWI accident attorneys at The Levin Firm, know the consequences and risks associated with vehicle collisions when people drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Most people take steps to ensure that they can consume alcohol safely, such as recruiting a sober designated driver or utilizing cabs or public transportation, but the law allows DUI and DWI accident attorneys to recover for people who are injured in motor vehicle accidents. Nonetheless, intoxicated individuals still sometimes end up behind the wheel of a car, and all too often, they cause fatal accidents or accidents which leave others with serious life-threatening injuries.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 17,500 people are killed each year, and thousands more injured, in DUI related motor vehicle accidents. More often than not, the inebriated driver does not suffer the most serious injuries; rather, it is his or her passengers, the occupants of another vehicle, or pedestrians.
Drivers who operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, regardless of whether or not they cause an accident, are susceptible to arrest for criminal charges as well as sanctions from the state department of transportation. If you have been injured in an accident with an intoxicated driver, you also have the right to bring a private lawsuit against that driver to recover damages.
At The Levin Firm, we understand that representing victims of DUI related accidents requires particular types of skills and knowledge, as well as ability to understand your rights. We fight to recover the many types of damages and compensation our clients are entitled to, including medical expenses, hospital bills, rehabilitations expenses, lost earnings, future wage losses, lost earning capacity, physical disabilities, scars, loss of a limb, brain and head injuries, emotional distress, depression, anxiety, grief, and pain and suffering. We understand these issues, and work with our clients, their friends and family, as well as their doctors, psychologists, long-term care planners, and others – to assure that our clients receive not only the finest legal representation, but also the finest support and medical care.
Representing DUI related accident victims requires a team of aggressive investigators and lawyers all devoting their maximum effort to their clients.
