DWI Charges Compared to DWI Injury Claims

Depending on the particular situation, a person who is driving while intoxicated and gets in an accident where one or more people are injured, may be given a criminal DWI charge by the state and they may also face civil, personal injury claims from people who were injured and/or whose property was damaged. If someone dies as a result of an accident with an intoxicated person, their surviving family members may be able to sue the negligent driver on behalf of their deceased loved one’s estate as well as for their own losses.

Even though some states have similar criminal and civil laws for situations involving accidents involving people who have driven while under the influence, each state has their own unique set of laws that can only be applied in that state. If you have been injured in an accident in District Heights or anywhere else in Maryland, only a DWI lawyer who is licensed in MD is allowed to represent you in Maryland courts.

If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by an intoxicated driver, it does not matter whether or not they are arrested, charged or convicted of a DWI- you most likely have the right to make a civil claim to hold them liable for your injuries and other damages. Discussing your situation with a knowledgeable District Heights, MD DWI lawyer may help you to determine whether or not you have a claim worth pursuing and what your next steps should be.

DUI Compared to DWI

In Maryland, the terms DUI (driving while under the influence) and DWI (driving while intoxicated) are two different criminal charges where a DWI, while still a serious criminal charge, is a less serious offense than a DUI.  

Some states have similar DUI/DWI laws to Maryland’s, others officially only use one or the other of the terms, while others use the terms interchangeably to mean the same thing.

Regardless of whether or not a person who caused the accident you were injured in was charged with a crime, you may be eligible to seek compensation from them through a civil lawsuit.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
