Helping Victims Of Drunk Driving Accidents

When a drunk driver gets behind the wheel of a car, he or she is putting all other motorists at risk. Accidents often occur as the result of a drunk driver's inability to control his or her vehicle due to his or her impairment. Whether a driver was drinking or using drugs before he or she drove while intoxicated, victims deserve to be protected by a drunk driving accidents lawyer while the drunk driver is held legally and criminally responsible.

At the KMA Law Office in Severna Park, we do not take drunk driving accident cases lightly. Throughout her more than 20 years of experience in the field of law, personal injury attorney Karen M. Authement has seen the impact that drunk driving accidents have had on individuals and families. She leads our firm in providing clients with the tailored representation you would expect from a small firm while utilizing the level of resources that large firms have.

Representing The Victims Of Devastating Accidents

It seems as though when a drunk driver is involved in a car accident, he or she is not injured by other motorists and passengers are catastrophically injured. We aggressively pursue justice on behalf of our clients who have sustained injuries such as:

  • Closed head and traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Fractures
  • Amputations
  • Serious burns and scarring
  • Severe lacerations and abrasions

Our firm works tirelessly to obtain compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering, in addition to a number of other losses you may have sustained as a result of the accident.

No Dram Shop Laws In Maryland

In some states, the victim of a drunk driving accident may be able to take action against the bar or other establishment that served alcohol to the intoxicated driver. However, Maryland has no such laws. This means that our approach is to take direct action against the drunk driver and his or her insurance company in order to obtain compensation for the devastating injuries that resulted from the accident.
