Drunk Driving Injury?
Fair and just compensation: personal injury and alcohol related injury and death
Drunk drivers rarely take evasive action, and that fact makes the accidents they cause so much more devastating than other accidents. Injuries are often serious. Wrongful death is far too common. The driver who chose to drink and drive is at fault, but there may not be enough insurance to cover the damage the drunk driver caused. In many drunk driving accident cases, there is another avenue for compensation—dram shop liability. The dram shop is the bar, restaurant or other entity that knowingly served alcohol to a driver who was under age or obviously impaired.
As personal injury lawyers, we know how to investigate potential dram shop liability and hold the bar or restaurant accountable for their actions.
