East Orange & Newark Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
Any motor vehicle accident, even if it appears at the time to be minor, can have long-lasting effects on the health of those involved. Many drivers may be inattentive or otherwise unsafe on the roads of New Jersey, causing collisions and injuring innocent people. When these people have been drinking and driving, however, the situation becomes all the more serious.
At our East Orange law firm, Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, our attorneys are experienced at handling motor vehicle accident cases involving drunk drivers. Drunk driving accidents can lead to severe injuries because drivers are often out of control or going at high rates of speed at the time of their accidents.
Our Lawyers Help You Stand Up For Your Rights
If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, your life can change dramatically. You may be hospitalized for a significant amount of time, which is not only draining to your health, but to your pocketbook as well. Medical bills can skyrocket in a hurry, and you might miss significant time at work due to your injuries — even after you get out of the hospital.
When drunk drivers are involved in an accident, they are often prosecuted and may be subjected to a fine, jail time and/or a suspended license. While these punishments can be satisfying for the victim of a drunk driving accident, they are not directly helpful for helping to compensate that victim. An experienced lawyer from Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP, can assist clients in this area.
