Investigating A Drunk Driving Accident
After a drunk-driving accident, it is critical to begin an immediate investigation to collect and preserve all necessary evidence for the case. We will contact witnesses, review police and medical records, work with accident reconstructionists, and take pictures of the accident scene. Our firm will diligently collect and preserve evidence to prepare for your case and maximize compensation after an accident.
Our DUI accident lawyers are experienced in cases involving:
- Wrongful death
- Dram-shop liability
- Scarring and amputation
- Paralysis and permanent disability
- Motorcycle accidents
- Trucking accidents
What Is Dram-Shop Liability?
Our firm will identify every party responsible for the accident and injuries. Under Pennsylvania dram-shop laws, you may be able to pursue a case or claim against a negligent bartender, bar, liquor store or restaurant responsible for negligently over-serving the drunk-driver involved in your accident.
A DUI accident involving dram shop laws can be complex. Our attorneys have the skill and experience to effectively handle your case in settlement negotiations or in litigation. We are experienced in dram-shop cases involving over-serving (serving patrons who are already intoxicated) and serving to minors.
