Pennsylvania passed Act 24 in 2003, which aimed to better treat and rehabilitate first time offenders while outlining more severe punishment for repeat offenders. But the consequences laid out in this legislation are a drunk driver’s debt to society for endangering the public. These consequences do not cover the personal expenses you suffer because of alcohol-related accidents.
If you have been injured in an accident resulting from drug or alcohol impaired driving, you may need a lawyer’s help to get personal justice. DiSandro & Malloy, P.C. is a Philadelphia, PA area DUI law firm that specializes in getting you the compensation you deserve.
If someone’s impaired driving hurt you or a loved one, a personal injury lawyer can help you pursue compensation to cover:
If you had the misfortune of losing a loved one in a fatal alcohol-related accident, you may be able to claim other damages as part of a wrongful death lawsuit.
While you may be entitled to compensation according to Pennsylvania law, getting a fair settlement isn’t always easy. Individuals facing charges of impaired driving typically hire their own lawyers and will fight your claims. Some insurance companies may practice bad-faith tactics like unreasonably delaying or denying your claim. In many cases, an initial settlement offer just doesn’t come close to adequately compensating you for your physical and emotional trauma.
