Accidents Caused By Impaired Drivers

When people who have had too much to drink make the irresponsible decision to get behind the wheel, they place everyone else on the road with them at risk. When they cause accidents that result in serious injuries to innocent people, not only do they have to answer to the law for their legal offenses, they must also answer to their victims for the harm they have caused.

If a drunk driver’s negligence has resulted in the accident that caused your injuries, you should seek the advice of a qualified Harrisburg personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Insurance companies will frequently attempt to deny your claim for damages and may even point the finger at you for the cause of the accident. Having an experienced attorney on your side will help to ensure that your rights are protected to the fullest possible extent.

Building The Strongest Possible Case In Support Of Your Claim For Damages

With every case we accept, the attorneys at Marzzacco Niven & Associates work hard to secure the maximum level of compensation available for your claim. We work closely with your medical team and our own team of experts to gain a complete understanding of your injuries and other losses so that we can seek the right compensation for your medical care, loss of income, property damage, and other losses.

In some cases, including drunk driving accidents, Pennsylvania law also allows you to seek punitive damages. These additional damages are designed to punish the drunk driver for his or her reckless behavior. Punitive damages are not automatically awarded in drunk driving cases, but we evaluate every case to see if grounds exist to pursue them.

We Know How To Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable

If you were injured or a loved one was killed by a drunk driver, who is the best lawyer for you and your family? As a former Deputy District Attorney in Dauphin County, Attorney Christopher Marzzacco began his career prosecuting cases that included DUI, Homicide by Vehicle while DUI, Aggravated Assault by Vehicle while DUI, and other serious auto-related crimes.

As a personal injury lawyer, Attorney Marzzacco has handled dozens of motor vehicle crashes where DUI drivers have killed or caused significant injuries to innocent people. To us, driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs is reckless behavior. Under Pennsylvania law, when we encounter this behavior, we often ask the Court or Jury to impose “punitive damages” against the defendant DUI driver. Punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant and to deter future reckless behavior by other drivers. At Marzzacco Niven & Associates, we will raise a voice to investigate the facts of the case—often working with the investigating police department or a privately retained team of experts to gather all the evidence necessary to bring justice to our clients and their families.
