Compensation for DWI Accidents

Compensation for DWI AccidentsIt is a crime to drive while impaired and if someone injures someone by doing this in Maryland, the victim may be able to seek compensation with the help of DWI lawyers Gaithersburg, MD DWI victims recommend. It does not matter whether or not the intoxicated driver was charged with a DWI (driving while impaired) and whether or not they were convicted of a DWI, if someone is injured in an accident caused by an intoxicated driver that is impaired, they may be responsible for expenses that are the result of the victim’s injury.

DWI Compared to DUI

Driving while impaired (DWI) is a less serious offence than driving under the influence (DUI) but it is a crime nonetheless.

A person is typically charged with a DWI if the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is between 0.07% – 0.08%. A BAC of 0.07% – 0.079% is technically under the legal limit for driving in Maryland but when someone displays impairment such as driving negligently or recklessly, or failing a field sobriety test, they may be charged with a DWI if their BAC is within this range.

If you have been injured in an accident involving an impaired driver in Gaithersburg, MD DWI lawyers may be able to help you. It does not matter whether the person who caused the accident that injured you has been charged with a DWI or a DUI, or even if they were not actually charged but were driving in a negligent, reckless or malicious manner, there is a good chance that you may be able to seek compensation for expenses related to your injury.

The criminal penalties for a DWI do not take away a victim’s pain and suffering. The perpetrator of this crime may face up to 60 days in jail, a fine of up to $500, license suspension, and other penalties, because they broke a law of the government. These punishments do nothing to help the victim whose pain and suffering they have caused. While money cannot do this either, when Gaithersburg, MD DWI lawyers help you to get compensation, it may at least help to aleve some of the stress the financial burdens your injuries are causing you. Without the help of reliable lawyers, you may be missing out on making sure that your injuries do not continue to cause you financial distress.

Regardless of whether or not the impaired driver that caused your injuries has been charged or convicted of their crime or neither, Gaithersburg, MD DWI lawyers may be able to help you to make sure that you do not suffer from financial hardship on top of your pain and suffering.

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.
