Injured By A Drunk Driver? Act Quickly.
If you were injured in a drunk driving accident, it is important to talk to an attorney as soon as possible. As with any accident, an investigation needs to be conducted. Because evidence can become lost and witnesses can become unreliable, the sooner we can get started the better.
Dram Shop Liability
When determining liability in a drunk driving accident, most people point to the driver. While this is true in most cases, a bar or restaurant may also be at fault.
Known as dram shop liability, an establishment that continues to serve alcohol to an intoxicated person may be partially liable for injuries caused by a drunk driver. Our attorneys can help you determine whether to seek compensation from a bar or restaurant in addition to the driver.
