Drunk Driver Accidents
When an at-fault driver in an auto accident was legally intoxicated at the time of the accident, that driver will be almost automatically found negligent. Drunk driving is a crime, meaning the at-fault driver may be subject to punitive damages on top of compensatory damages. You will want a firm that is experienced in developing these cases to obtain maximum compensation – that’s where we come in. Give us a call.
Dram Shop Liability
Bars, taverns, social clubs, and the like, can be held liable for injuries caused by over-serving their customers. When a business serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person, they are responsible for anything that person does after. For example, if you’re in an auto accident with a drunk driver, of course you can sue the drunk driver for your injuries, and perhaps even for punitive damages. But, you may also be able to sue the business that over-served the driver for negligently serving too much alcohol and thereby taking part in creating harm.
