According to recent MADD statistics, more than 2200 individuals have been killed in Pennsylvania in the past five years because of drunk drivers. This estimate does not include the many thousands more who have been seriously injured due to intoxicated motorists. While drunk driving prevention must remain a priority with lawmakers and citizens, we also need to advocate for justice when anyone is injured in a drunk driving accident.
As citizens, what is concerning and unfair is that even if we are safe and conscientious motorists, we can never fully protect ourselves from dangerous and drunk drivers.

We also have an extended network of experts who we routinely use to help investigate and win such cases.
When A Bar Employee Is Responsible For Over-Serving A Drunk Driver
In many DUI injury cases, the accident stems from a bartender over-serving an obviously intoxicated patron. And while the drunk individual was ultimately the person who got behind the wheel, the bar or restaurant can still be found liable for the victim's injuries. These liability laws are called dram shop laws.
If your case involves bar liability, it is highly important to get a lawyer involved immediately. A prompt investigation is crucial to obtain the necessary evidence to establish liability. Give us a call to learn more about our proactive steps and the prompt attention we can give to your matter.
