Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Drunk driving accident law firm VirginiaWhen someone gets into an accident in Virginia where a drunk driver is at fault, it may be in their best interest to talk to a drunk driving accident law firm Virginia community members recommend. A personal injury law firm that is experienced in successfully defending the rights of people who have been injured by drunk drivers may be able to help an injured person get compensation for expenses related to their injury, and for property that was damaged in the accident. If someone dies because of an accident involving a drunk driver, their remaining family members may be entitled to compensation for their loss and on the decedent’s behalf.

Drunk Driving and Personal Injury Claims

Drunk driving and personal injury claim laws differ from state to state. This is one reason why it is a good idea to enlist the help of a lawyer who is licensed to practice in the state where the accident occurred.

In most states, drunk driving or driving while under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) is a criminal offense. While specific penalties differ from state to state, when someone is convicted of driving while drunk, he or she is often subjected to fines, drivers license suspension, jail time, and probation, to name some of the consequences for driving drunk. Even though someone who injured you or someone you love may have a criminal case pending (or in progress or completed) against them, an injured person and/or their family can still file a civil claim against the drunk driver.

If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident in Virginia or one of the surrounding states, it may be beneficial to enlist the help of a drunk driving accident law firm Virginia drunk driving accident victims and their families can rely on.

Compensation for Personal Injury Claims

When someone is injured or when someone dies as the result of someone else’s negligent, reckless or malicious behavior, the injured person or a decedent’s remaining family members may be able to seek compensation through a personal injury claim in the civil courts. Drunk driving accident claims often fall under the umbrella of personal injury claims. Reasons people seek compensation for drunk driving, personal injury claims include but are not limited to:

  • Emergency services
  • Medical bills
  • Hospital stays and services
  • Prescription and over the counter medication costs
  • Loss of income
  • Loss of child care
  • Loss of household management and upkeep
  • Loss of benefits
  • Loss of ability
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Future medical costs
  • Funeral costs
  • Burial or cremation costs
  • Loss of consortium (spousal support)
  • Loss of parental guidance

Many people do not know what their rights are after they have been injured by a drunk driver. Many people who are injured or who are grieving over the unexpected loss of a loved one, do not have the energy or resources to learn about their rights and to fight for them on their own. An experienced attorney can help to ensure that your rights are upheld and that you and your family get the compensation you are entitled to.

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.
