Drunk driving accidents are not accidents. Before the accident that caused your injury, someone made the decision to get behind the wheel of a car after he or she had been drinking. This is the reason we have courtrooms in Pennsylvania; to address the behavior of people who drink and drive.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver, the lawyers at Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C., can help you explore your legal options. We have significant experience handling drunk driving accident lawsuits for clients throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and nationwide.

Representing the Victims of Drunk Drivers
When a drunk driver injures another person in an accident, they may be liable in both criminal and civil proceedings. The criminal case addresses the issues such as possible fines and jail time. The civil case addresses compensation for the victim.
If you are injured by someone who is driving under the influence, you can seek compensation for everything you have lost in the accident, including medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In Pennsylvania, courts can also award punitive damages, which are damages above and beyond your actual losses, to punish the drunk driver.
In handling drunk driver accident cases, our attorneys will carefully investigate the circumstances leading to the accident to identify liable parties. If the drunk driver was served alcohol in a bar or restaurant after he or she was already intoxicated, the establishment may be responsible under our state's dram shop liability laws. If the drunk driver does not have enough insurance to pay for your damages, we can file a claim under your own coverage for underinsured and uninsured drivers.
