Accidents Caused by Intoxicated “Drunk” Drivers

We have extensive experience representing families and individuals that were victims of drunk driving accidents which kill thousands of innocent victims each year. If you were injured or a loved one was killed because of an intoxicated driver, the investigation of these claims is often times critical.  Investigators and experts are needed to fully uncover exactly what happened and who is responsible. An injury lawyer with access to the necessary resources who is experienced in these types of accidents can help you get justice for your injuries or the tragic loss of a loved one. Though no amount of money can compensate for the death or injury of a loved one, it can help ease the financial burdens faced as a result of the accident.

Other Sources of Compensation

In addition to the claim against the intoxicated driver responsible for the accident, establishments in Ohio that serve alcohol can also be held legally responsible for the actions of their intoxicated patrons. These laws known as “dram shop liability laws” hold bar owners responsible if an intoxicated patron gets in his or her motor vehicle and causes an accident.  The term “dram shop” refers to any establishment where alcohol was sold, and a dram is a measure of alcohol.

Bar owners have a responsibility to stop serving alcohol to their patrons when they become too intoxicated. If they fail to do so and continue to serve someone who in turn causes a motor vehicle accident, they  may be legally responsible under the law. It is important to hire an attorney who is experienced in these unique injury claims as soon as possible after the accident occurred, so critical evidence relevant to the case can be uncovered and preserved.
