Drunk driving continues to be a tragic, chronic problem in Virginia and the rest of the country. Every year thousands of people are arrested for driving while intoxicated and under the influence in Fairfax County, as well other counties such as Prince William, Arlington, and Loudoun. Many people believe that drunk drivers are only subject to criminal charges, but the truth is if you have been hurt or lost a loved one in a drunk driving car accident you can bring a personal injury lawsuit against them to recover monetary damages in civil court. It is critical though, that you find a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who is familiar with these types of cases and who will take a hard line as your advocate during these trying times.

Helping Victims of Virginia Drunk Driving Accidents Recover Compensation
Attorney Kyle Manikas helps injury victims and families who have been injured or lost loved ones in crashes where the liable party was found to be intoxicated. As a former Virginia prosecutor, he will treat the negligent, drunk parties as if he was prosecuting a criminal case and seeking a conviction. His trial experience and respect in the legal community have garnered him a reputation as a tough litigator and effective strategist.
Gathering Evidence & Achieving Settlement for Maximum Value
It is important to note that the drunk driver does not have to have criminal charges brought against them in order to have it entered into evidence that they may have been drinking before the collision. Attorney Manikas can gather proof through conducting a thorough investigation to prove impairment. As an experienced criminal and civil lawyer, he knows how to assess how alcohol may have affected a driver and every other technical component needed to prove liability.
Additionally, he knows how to properly value a claim to include all types of necessary compensation for every type of injury and achieve a settlement for the maximum amount appropriate under the circumstances. Manikas Law also knows how to uncover all avenues of insurance claims, including scenarios where the driver was uninsured or underinsured. Our firm also handles wrongful death litigation for these types of fatal car accident cases.
For many personal injury claims, time is of the essence because evidence needs to be preserved and the statute of limitations begins running immediately.
