Harrisburg DUI Accident Attorney
Hold Drunk Drivers Responsible with Metzger Wickersham
The damage caused by drunk driving accidents can be tragic. Survivors often report extensive emotional trauma on top of their physical injuries. Despite the devastating effects, drunk driving accidents remain one of the most common causes of injury and death on roadways in Pennsylvania and throughout the United States. On average, someone is injured by a drunk driver every two minutes.
Those who choose to drive while under the influence of alcohol are negligent and need to be held accountable for their reckless actions. While a drunk driver may be charged criminally, this does nothing to compensate the person he or she injured. Thankfully, civil remedies are available, but compensation is not automatic. It is extremely important for drunk driving victims to retain a qualified attorney for help pursuing a fair recovery to cover their medical bills, damaged property, lost wages, and other damages.

Pennsylvania Liability for Drunk Driving Accidents
Cases involving drunk drivers often have a multitude of contributing factors. With help from our skilled legal team, we can help you hold the appropriate parties accountable for your injuries.
- Drivers: The most obvious party would be the drivers themselves, who choose to drive their vehicles even after consuming too much alcohol.
- Hosts: If a host serves alcohol to a minor who becomes involved in a drunk driving accident, the host may be held responsible in part for the damages.
- Restaurant Staff/Owners: If bar or restaurant staff continue serving alcohol to someone who appears to be intoxicated, they may be held liable for injuries in a drunk driving accident.
Our Pennsylvania DUI accident lawyers can investigate the circumstances surrounding your case and hold the guilty party or parties liable for damages.
