If you or someone in your family suffered injuries in a car accident involving alcohol or drug use on the part of the other driver, contact a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer at Shollenberger Januzzi & Wolfe in Harrisburg or Enola. Our experience with the recovery of damages in complex accident claims can give you a major advantage toward recovering the compensation you need and deserve.
How These Cases Are Different
Drunk driving can definitely be a complicating factor in a car accident case. While the fact of a DUI arrest or conviction can make it easier to establish the drunk driver's liability to you, collecting the damages you prove can be a problem.
Auto insurance policies won't usually cover any punitive damages that a jury might award. It's also likely that the other driver's coverage limits won't cover the full amount of your actual losses, including compensation for pain and suffering. You can expect to run into problems with your own insurance company when you try to collect under your own uninsured or underinsured motorist protection or under your medical bills covered or work loss covered.
