Lancaster, PA Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers

Getting Justice for the Victims of Driving Under the Influence in Lancaster, Pennsylvania

From 2015 to 2017, 1,204 drunk driving accidents took place in Lancaster County. Roughly 1 in 6 of those car accidents took place in Lancaster, PA itself. These accidents resulted in 526 injuries and 29 fatalities. That's 526 people who were hurt in completely preventable, unnecessary circumstances. That's 29 people who should be alive today—but they're not. Why? Because someone else decided to drink while operating their 2,000-pound high-speed vehicle. Our car accident attorneys hold reckless drivers accountable in civil court. While criminal penalties are vital for our justice system, a prison sentence won't help our clients walk again. They won't pay for medical care, lost wages, or the funeral expenses of a lost loved one. Only personal injury or wrongful death claims will do that.

If you want answers about your drunk driving accident, speak with us in a free consultation. Call (888) 498-3023 or contact us online to review your choices with an experienced trial lawyer.

How Many DUI Accidents Occur in Lancaster, PA?

Lancaster is a large city and has one of the 10 highest traffic accident rates in Pennsylvania. Unfortunately, Lancaster also has a higher DUI rate than Pennsylvania cities on average, with roughly 1 in 3 new criminal cases in Lancaster County including DUI or DWI charges. Statewide, the rate is 1 in 4. The DUI rate has a direct effect on the number of people who are hurt or killed every year by drunk drivers.

In the most recent year data is available, 364 people died in drunk driving accidents statewide; that's a third of all traffic deaths in Pennsylvania. In 2015, 3 percent of drunk driving accident victims died in Lancaster County. While that may seem like a 'small' share of the state's DUI fatalities, the DUI injury rate in Lancaster has climbed in recent years.

With around 10,500 alcohol-related car accidents in Pennsylvania every year, our Lancaster DUI accident lawyers are committed to holding drunk drivers accountable. By taking drunk drivers to court, plaintiffs could make the streets safer while recovering compensation for medical bills, lost income, and other losses.

Serious Injury from DUI

Because drunk drivers have less control over their reflexes or judgement, DUI injuries have the potential to cause permanent harm or fatal injury. According to NHTSA data, drunk driving makes up 29 percent of all traffic fatalities, and the damage caused by drunk driving totaled $44 billion in the most recent year for which data was available. The harm caused to you or your loved one will cost you for the rest of your life. It's only right that the at-fault driver cover some of those costs.

Serious injuries from DUI accidents include:

Many of these DUI injuries cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to treat, but they cost families so much more than that. Losing the ability to make a living, to walk, or to play with your kids costs families millions in lost opportunities over the course of their lives. As Lancaster DUI injury attorneys, our job is helping families take back some of what they've lost in court or in settlement negotiation.
