Every year, more than 40 percent of all traffic accident fatalities are alcohol-related. More than 50 percent of all fatal crashes during the weekend are alcohol-related. Losing a loved one in a drunk driving crash is a tragedy. It is extremely hard to deal with the pain and grief of a loss. In addition, the family of a fatal crash victim wants to hold the drunk driver accountable for the cause of the death. As a Pennsylvania personal injury law firm representing DUI accident victims and their families, the lawyers at the Lassen Law Firm understand the pain caused by drunk and intoxicated drivers.
We are committed to compassionately representing families while aggressively pursuing justice for their loss in a wrongful death claim. We have represented surviving spouses, parents, children, siblings and grandparents in DUI accident wrongful death claims throughout Pennsylvania. Our clients have included passenger victims of DUI accidents, and other motorists, pedestrians, bicyclists, and bystanders killed by drunk drivers. It is understandable that no dollar amount could ever ease the pain of a sudden and unexpected loss. However, drug related accidents cause vast financial burden. A loved one's death may also bring loss of health insurance, pension, and other benefits.
A claim against a drunk driver (or any other responsible party that contributed to an alcohol related accident) may provide compensation for final medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, loss of expected lifetime earnings and benefits, and loss of love, care, companionship and protection. The amount of compensation a family may be entitled to may vary widely depending on dozens of variables, but compensation may be substantial.
