That experience includes working with government accident reconstruction officers/experts and medical examiners.
Mr. Manikas prosecuted 1000’s of Reckless Driving cases and Drunk and Intoxicated Drivers
If your personal injury case involves a drunk driver, it is critical that you have a former prosecutor handle your case. As part of your case, your lawyer will need to introduce evidence of the responsible driver's blood alcohol level. The rules of evidence that apply to the introduction of the blood alcohol level in an injury case are the same rules that apply in a criminal case. Many lawyers have trouble with this law and the use of expert toxicologists. However, Mr. Manikas handled thousands of DWI/DUI prosecutions as a prosecutor and has extensive experience dealing with blood alcohol evidence. This evidence is even more critical if the driver's blood alcohol level was a .15 or above as this entitles you to seek punitive damages under Virginia law. Similarly, your cases may involve a driver that was charged with reckless driving. There may even be an accompanying criminal case against the responsible driver. Reckless driving involves conduct beyond simple negligence. Having handled the prosecution of 1000's of reckless driving and drunk driving cases, Mr. Manikas has a tremendous familiarity and level of expertise with the relevant Virginia traffic laws.
