Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys Bucks County, PA
Serving Clients Across Bensalem, Northeast Philadelphia, Feasterville, Levittown, Penndel, Millbrook and Bucks County
Drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs (DWI/DUI) is not just illegal, but it is a potentially deadly act of recklessness. Drunk driving is a leading cause of injurious auto accidents in Pennsylvania. Driving with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08% or greater is over the legal limit, and the offending individual may be held liable for accidents including associated monetary damages. It is also possible that the business or social host who provided the offender with alcohol may be at fault under premises liability statutes.

Northeast Philadelphia Drunk Driving Car Accident Injury Lawyers Recover Compensation
Depending on the specifics of your accident, there are several ways our Northeast Philadelphia attorneys may be able to help recover compensation for your injuries. For example, we may choose to file a personal injury claim holding the driver liable. If there is such a thing as good news when involved in an accident caused by drunk driving, it is that proving the negligence of the drunk driver who caused your injuries is a relatively easy task. As long as we are able to legally show that the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or other controlled substances, it is virtually guaranteed that we will be able to show that the other driver is at fault for the accident and, by extension, your injuries.
If applicable, we can also file a personal injury claim holding a business or social host liable. This falls under dram shop premises liability laws, which hold those entities liable if they irresponsibly serve a guest or patron. This may entail a business or host serving a guest alcohol and knowingly permitting them to drive, ending in an auto accident which ultimately led to your injuries.
In either case, we will aim to show that the negligence and/or reckless behavior of other parties were ultimately at fault for your injuries. This establishment is the basis of any good personal injury claim.
Levittown, PA Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys Build Your Case
Personal injury claims involving drunk driving typically hinge on four things:
- Proving the negligence or recklessness of another party
- Proving that the negligence or recklessness directly led to the accident in question
- Proving that the accident in question led directly to your injuries
- Receiving what you are owed based on the nature and severity of your injuries
Items one and two are covered in the previous section. Item three is a critical piece which many of our clients may forget. It is obvious to the victim that the injuries were a result of the accident, but that is not legally valid. It is a great idea to see a medical professional as soon as possible in the aftermath of an injurious accident.
Not only will your doctor give you valuable medical treatment and advice, but his or her diagnosis will be valuable in your case by showing that injuries were in fact from the accident in question. The faster you are able to see your doctor, the stronger your case becomes.
