Washington D.C. Drunk Driving Accident Attorney
In Maryland, driving with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or more is, of course, illegal. And with all the publicity and attention the issue has received, it is distressing that drunk drivers still cause about one-third of all auto accident fatalities.
Maryland DUI Victim Lawyer
If you have been injured or have lost a loved one to an accident with a drunk driver, you have the right to sue for financial damages, aside from the criminal prosecution. Contact a Washington, D.C., drunk driving accident lawyer.
Your Damages In A DUI Accident Injury
When someone is injured in an accident, they and their family suffer physically and financially. But when someone so irresponsible injures them, there is additional anger and emotional reaction.
This is why Maryland injury attorneys at Trombly & Singer take on these cases and work hard to win the maximum amount of compensation for clients. We seek out any and all potentially responsible parties. This often includes a liquor store that should not have sold alcohol to someone already visibly intoxicated. Bars and restaurants have a duty to avoid over-serving those already impaired and likely to drive. Servers must be on the lookout for slurred speech, behavior such as boasting, drinking quickly, buying rounds or double drinks.
It is important to begin our investigation as soon as possible. Witnesses must be located and evidence gathered while it still can be. Rest assured, these cases can be won. Judges and juries frown on drunk driving and insurance companies are more willing than usual to negotiate a satisfactory settlement. Punitive damages may even be awarded if the case goes to trial.
Our firm is an established and successful law firm. Mr. Schultz and Mr. Trombly are both also certified members of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum reflecting the results they each have been able to achieve for their clients.
