Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

Drunk driving is a crime, not an accident. Impaired drivers must be held responsible for the victims of their crime.

If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a crash caused by a driver that is drunk or impaired by drugs, Ostroff Injury Law has the experience, knowledge, and passion to help you. Drivers who make the reckless decision to get behind the wheel after drinking or taking drugs should be held fully accountable for the harm they cause. We help crash victims and their families hold drunk and high drivers financially accountable for the lives they harm, so that our clients can begin to put their lives back together. For our firm, it’s personal.

Drunk Driving is a Nationwide Problem

Every day, 28 people in the U.S. die in vehicle crashes involving a driver impaired by alcohol, and many more are injured. More than 4,600 people were killed in crashes involving a drunk driver in Pennsylvania between 2003 and 2012, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Drivers with a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or higher are considered by law to be alcohol-impaired.

Who Else Might Be Held Responsible for the Crash?

While the individual driver is responsible for getting behind the wheel after drinking, others might also be held liable for the damages caused by the crash. For example, a bar or another establishment may be held legally responsible if it served that person alcohol when he or she was visibly intoxicated and that person then caused a crash.  “Visibly intoxicated” refers to apparent signs of intoxication, such as slurred speech and staggering.

Similarly, a “social host,” meaning the host of a private event the driver attended, might also be held liable for the crash if he or she served the driver alcohol despite visible intoxication.

Experienced Pennsylvania DUI Lawyer

Jon Ostroff has a decades-long reputation across Pennsylvania for successfully representing victims of drunk drivers. In fact, for decades, Mother Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) has recommended Jon to the families of victims of drunk drivers when they are searching for legal representation. The leaders of MADD know that Jon’s commitment is personal. His mother was critically injured by a drunk driver, and his best childhood friend was killed by one. Jon knows firsthand the devastation these preventable crashes cause, and he and his team are dedicated to helping others obtain justice and compensation.

Limited Tort Exception in a Drunk Driving Crash

In some cases, Pennsylvania law allows motorists with limited tort insurance to recover full tort damages when they have been hurt in a crash involving a drunk driver. To recover full tort damages, the other driver must be convicted of drunk driving or accept Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD).
