Compassionate Legal Support in Your Time of Need

Welcome to Philly Injury Lawyer, where our dedicated team specializes in representing victims of DUI (Driving Under the Influence) and DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) accidents. Our mission is to offer empathetic, professional legal assistance to those tragically affected by the irresponsible actions of intoxicated drivers.

Understanding DUI/DWI Accidents

DUI and DWI accidents can occur anytime and anywhere, often without warning. These accidents are not limited by location – happening on highways, city streets, and even in residential areas. The common thread in these incidents is the involvement of a driver impaired by alcohol or drugs, posing a severe threat to public safety.

Types of Injuries

The injuries resulting from DUI/DWI accidents can be severe, life-altering, and in some cases, fatal. Common injuries include:

  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Psychological trauma

The Seriousness of DUI/DWI Accidents

The impact of DUI/DWI accidents extends beyond physical injuries. Victims often face significant emotional and financial burdens. The loss of a loved one, the cost of medical treatment, and the long road to recovery can be overwhelming. Our goal is to alleviate these burdens through compassionate legal representation.

Who is Responsible?

In DUI/DWI accidents, the impaired driver is typically held responsible. However, liability can sometimes extend to other parties, such as establishments that served the driver alcohol. Identifying all responsible parties is crucial for a comprehensive claim.
