Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable for Their Actions

Suffering a serious injury or losing a loved one in a DUI accident can be devastating. Our attorneys provide results-oriented legal services to individuals and families who have been victimized in drunk driving accidents. At Shaffer & Engle, we believe that drunk drivers should be held accountable for the injuries they cause. We are aggressive in advocacy and compassionate in service to represent you and your family after a DUI accident.

We understand the devastation caused by a drunk driving accident. Our attorneys are relentless in pursuing all parties responsible for any injury or death.

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 help maximize compensation after an accident.

Our DUI accident lawyers in Harrisburg are experienced in cases involving:

  • Wrongful death
  • Trucking accidents
  • Dram-shop liability
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Scarring and amputation
  • Paralysis and permanent disability

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.

Attorney Jeff Engle Understands DUI Law

One of our primary attorneys, Jeff Engle, is a former prosecutor who thoroughly understands DUI law. While working for the prosecution, he helped the state of Pennsylvania put a number of drunk drivers behind bars. As a personal injury attorney, he continues to hold drunk drivers accountable by representing victims in DUI accident cases.

Well done and thank you!”

  • Mr. Engle took my matter as if it were his own and followed through to the end.

    “I contacted Mr. Engle back in August. My custody case had originated in Delaware in 2013 and was the final hearing was held in May of 2015. After the other party objected DE having jurisdiction, he took matters into his own hands and got PA involved - where he lives. In a panic I called Mr. Engle after being referred to him by my DE attorney. Even though I wasn't a client and I did not have an appointment scheduled, Mr Engle took the time out to hear the background information, calm me down and come to, what I thought, was a good conclusion. Fast forward 4 months later and every email, phone call and frantic visit to his office was greeted with kindness and patience...and if he was unavailable, his staff showed the same warm professionalism. I could be sure that I would hear back from him within the same business day - sometimes even on his downtime after hours - or first thing in the morning. Mr. Engle took my matter as if it were his own and followed through to the end. I would not hesitate to call on Mr. Engle again if the occasion ever arose.”
