With the Holidays Ahead… |Philadelphia Car Accident Lawyers Warn of DUIs

Despite stringent Pennsylvania liquor Laws, thousands of people are injured or killed each year in accidents caused by drunk drivers and by drivers who were under the influence of drugs. If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or was killed in a drunk-driving accident, you are entitled to recover full and fair compensation for your loss.

Attorneys at Edelstein Law are committed to relieving accident victims of their financial burdens. We have extensive experience in auto accident claims. If you would like to speak with one of our lawyers please contact our Philadelphia Personal Injury law firm at (215)893-9311 to arrange a free consultation.

Insurance Settlements and DWI/DUI Accident Injury Claims

It is to an insurance provider’s benefit to obtain a quick and minor settlement, not a fair one. Even a fracture or mild concussion may have long-term consequences. Expenses related to a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord injury must be carefully calculated to accurately reflect future medical expenses and the value of lost wages, as well as pain and suffering. A wrongful death claim must be presented to fully reflect the emotional and financial losses suffered by surviving family members. Our lawyers work with medical, economic and vocational experts to see that our clients receive full compensation for their losses as a result of drunk driving accidents.

Identify All Possible Sources of Compensation for a Drunk Driving Accident Claim

There are often multiple possible sources of financial recovery in these drunk driving personal injury cases. Among these are your own health and auto insurance, including medical coverage and uninsured motorist and underinsured motorist coverage; policies covering the driver who caused the accident (including the driver of the car in which you were a passenger); and third-party claims against the party that supplied alcohol. Our attorneys will investigate all possible sources on your behalf.

Pennsylvania “Dram Shop” Laws

In addition to a claim against the drunk driver, you may have a claim against a restaurant, bar, or social host that served alcohol, if alcohol was served after the driver became visibly intoxicated. Alcohol-related car accidents in Pennsylvania are governed by complex laws.  Before you sign ANY legal documents or agree to settle your claim, call the Law Offices of Jay L. Edelstein at (215)893-9311 or contact us online to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation with a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer with the appropriate experience. We will provide the information you need to make a well-informed decision about your case.
