Providing the full services our clients need to move forward

Convicted drunk drivers are subject to severe penalties in Maryland. While first offenders do not necessarily face jail time, the courts can sentence them to one year in jail, or even two years if they are caught transporting a minor. At the opposite end, a homicide by motor vehicle or vessel while impaired or under the influence  is a felony crime under Section 2-503 of the Maryland Criminal Law Code, subject to up to five years in prison. However, even if the offender does not go to jail, the criminal case typically takes precedence over a personal injury case within the courts.

 

Our experienced Maryland drunk driving accident lawyers understand that you need timely compensation to pay the expenses related to your injuries. We know how to handle the complex issues, such as the following:

  •  

  • Monitoring the progress of the criminal case against the liable party and working to obtain the field sobriety test results required in Maryland and other evidence that helps establish liability for your claim

  • Helping you seek restitution in the sentencing phase after a guilty criminal verdict

  • Coordinating your case with the events and outcome of the criminal case

  • Using an offender’s admission of guilt in a criminal case as evidence of liability

  • Pursuing a claim against the offender’s insurance policy, which cannot be denied because Maryland law prohibits insurance carriers from denying claims based on drunk driving

Drunk driving accidents often result in serious injuries

  • Drunk drivers are also often aggressive drivers, increasing the risk of fatalities  and serious injuries in accidents from drunk driving . All too often, victims of drunk driving accidents suffer serious permanent damage, such as the following:

  • Traumatic brain injury caused by an impact to the head against the steering wheel or side window — or being thrown from a motorcycle during the collision

  • Spinal cord damage that can result in permanent full or partial paralysis

  • Permanent scarring

  • Fatalities
