What defines a”Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Traffic offense” and how do I know if I need legal counsel?

No arrest is a minor arrest if you, a family member, or friend is charged
with an offense. Therefore, it is
critical that you have an experienced
attorney who can speak for you.

In virtually all states, a conviction for DUI (driving under the influence) can have very severe and long-lasted consequences ranging from heavy fines and loss of driving privileges to an imposition of significant time in prison.

For example, in Pennsylvania, intoxication or impairment can be proven in one of two ways:

Blood alcohol level in excess of 0.08 for adults.
Blood alcohol level in excess of 0.04 for an individual driving a commercial vehicle.
Blood alcohol level in excess of 0.02 for an individual driving a school bus or school vehicle.
Blood alcohol level in excess of 0.02 for minors under the age of 21
Proof that the driver or operator was impaired from the use of alcohol, prescription or illegal drugs
You should not face a DUI arrest without experienced legal counsel. Do you know your rights? Gultanoff and Associates understands that your driver’s license is often essential to your life.

Traffic laws, however, vary from state to state; do you know what to do:

If you refuse to sign a traffic ticket?
After you receive a traffic ticket?
If you receive ‘points’ against your license?
If your license is revoked or suspended?
If you approach a checkpoint or roadblock?
If you are pulled over and the officer requests to search your vehicle?

Have you been injured in the work place?

Are you out of work due to a work-related injury? If your answer to these questions is yes, it is important that
you speak with a workers compensation attorney.

The process for filing a claim for workers compensation can be very daunting. In fact, it is overwhelming. The attorneys at Gultanoff & Associates can work with you to make filing a workers compensation claim less frustrating. We may also be able to obtain for you a lump sum cash settlement of your claim.

Workers Compensation Act
The Pennsylvania Workers Compensation Act provides that all employers including non-profit organizations must issue workers compensation insurance for all employees. This includes full-time employees, part-time employees and seasonal employees (but not contractors). Time plays a big part in the filing of a claim. Under the Workers Compensation Act, work-loss benefit and medical benefits may be covered. Death benefits are usually paid to the dependent survivors if the death occurred from a work-related injury or illness. Having to deal with a trauma such as a work-related injury that leaves a person disabled is devastating.

You should seek legal counsel if you think you have a worker’s compensation injury or illness. Gultanoff and Associates understand the many issues of filing a workers compensation claim. We will work closely with you to ensure that you receive the best settlement for your workers compensation claim. Gultanoff & Associates wants to help clients receive monetary compensation for their work-related injury or illness.
