Greenbelt DUI Accident Lawyers

Greenbelt DUI Accident LawyersIf you have been injured in an accident in Greenbelt that was caused by a driver who was under the influence of alcohol and/or other altering substances, you may find it helpful to discuss your situation with Greenbelt, M.D. DUI lawyers who are experienced with successfully defending the rights of DUI accident victims and their families. 

Greenbelt Accidents and Alcohol

It is illegal to drive while under the influence, largely because the senses of people who are under the influence become impaired and they become more so with higher levels of alcohol or other substances in their system. This means that things such as motor skills and reflexes, vision, and cognitive abilities can be impared. When one or more of a person’s senses are impared and they are operating a large piece of machinery such as an automobile, there is a greater likelihood that they will crash and cause damage to property as well as injure people (including themselves).

If you are one of the many unfortunate people who get injured in accidents every year caused by drivers who are under the influence, you may be entitled to compensation. A lawyer who is licensed to protect DUI accident injury victims in Greenbelt and throughout M.D. may be able to help you determine whether or not you have a personal injury claim that is worth pursuing. 

Maryland DUI and Personal Injury Claims

Even though both involve potential time in court, a Greenbelt DUI is a completely separate thing compared to a M.D. personal injury claim that involves a driver that is under the influence, and one that the victim often needs the help of lawyers to get the compensation they are entitled to. 

Maryland, like all U.S. states and the District of Columbia, has laws that prohibit people from driving with above a certain amount of alcohol in their system. Driving while impaired (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI) are both legal terms that refer to the citations law enforcement officers often give people when they find they have been driving after drinking alcohol or taking other sensory altering substances.

While both are serious crimes, in Maryland, a DWI is a slightly less serious offense compared to a DUI. Some states use these terms similarly to M.D., some use them interchangeably, and some use only one or the other.

A personal injury claim is filed in a civil court and if it goes to trial it is tried in a civil court where the plaintiff is the injured person and the defendant(s) is the person or entity that caused their injury. It does not matter whether or not a driver that caused you injury has been charged and/or convicted of a DUI or DWI- you may still try to get compensation from them for expenses related to your injury as well as for other damages.

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.
