Helping Families Affected By Drunk Drivers
Drunk driving is a serious social issue, and despite public attempts to address it, people continue to suffer from its effects. A drunk driving accident can leave you unable to care for yourself or your family.
At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke Attorneys at Law, L.L.C., we have the experience to help you get the maximum compensation available. Our attorneys work hard to protect the rights of accident victims in Ocean County and Monmouth County, and have obtained over $75 million for our clients over the past three decades.
Accidents Take A Heavy Toll
National reports indicate that thousands of people are injured or killed in drunk driving crashes each year. The damages suffered in an automobile collision caused by a drunk driver can affect you for the rest of your life. These may include:
- Neck, back and spinal cord injuries
- Brain trauma
- Damage to internal organs
- Permanent paralysis
Suffering physical damage in an alcohol-related accident can leave emotional and psychological scars as well. Our attorneys will advocate tirelessly on your behalf to seek compensation for your medical costs so that your time and effort can be spent on recovering from your accident.
Identifying Liable Parties
While the person responsible for causing a drunk driving accident may face criminal charges, that will not get you compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering. In addition, the driver may not be the only one liable for your injuries. Under New Jersey law, bars and restaurants that overserve an intoxicated person or serve a minor at all also can be held liable if that person goes on to cause an accident. The same liability extends to the host of a party or social gathering.
Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident, identify all responsible parties and then build a strong case against anyone who may be liable.
