Financial Compensation For People Injured in Pennsylvania DUI Crashes

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers and helps them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Brian has offered to share some insight into the legal options available to those injured in Pennsylvania drunk driving crashes:

Getting injured in a drunk driving crash can cause serious financial and personal difficulties, such as high medical expenses and lost wages from missed time at work. People who have been injured in crashes involving drunk drivers should be aware that there are forms of financial compensation available to cover these damages.

Drunk drivers can often be held liable in personal injury lawsuits filed by the victims. Additionally, Pennsylvania and many other states allow DUI crash victims to file dram shop lawsuits against alcohol vendors under certain conditions.

According to Pennsylvania dram shop laws, an alcohol vendor can be held liable for injuries caused by a customer if the customer was visibly intoxicated or under 21 years of age. Social hosts can also be held liable for providing alcohol to minors if the minor injures someone else after consuming alcohol.
