Fatal DUI Accident Lawyer Serving WV
Morgantown Law Firm Representing Families in Wrongful Death Lawsuits
The Law Firm You Can Trust
Despite sobriety checkpoints and community-wide efforts to combat impaired driving, people continue to make the choice to get behind the wheel when drinking. According to the CDC, one in three fatal traffic accidents on U.S. Roads involves a drunk driver. If your family has lost a member due to someone else’s reckless decision to drive drunk, our team of attorneys will fight for you when you need it most. At Angotti & Straface Attorneys at Law, we have offered proven results for our clients in Morgantown and throughout West Virginia since 1952.
Maximum Compensation for Loved Ones Killed by WV Drunk Drivers
Unfortunately, West Virginia’s criminal justice system allows a drunk driver to serve as little as 90 days in jail and pay a fine of just $500 to the county for killing your loved one. At Angotti & Straface, we offer West Virginia families whose lives have been impacted by DUI-related traffic fatalities the legal representation necessary to seek fair financial restitution. We can assist you every step of the way.
Our law firm can help you file a civil lawsuit to collect damages for your actual financial losses, including medical bills, funeral expenses, and lost wages, compensation for emotional distress, loss of companionship and support, the pain and suffering the deceased endured, and possible punitive damages, as well. Overall, you may be entitled to substantial compensation for your terrible grief and loss. In some cases, there may be more than one liable party. For example, if the DUI driver was already intoxicated when served at a licensed establishment, the bar may also be held accountable. We will fight to uncover the maximum amount of compensation allowed by law for your devastating loss to help ensure that justice is served.
