In most drunk driver cases, the biggest potential source of compensation is the drunk driver and the driver’s insurance company, or the employer if the driver was on the job. In some cases, it may be possible to file suit against the bar or restaurant which over-served the driver. In your case, we will seek to maximize compensation from all possible sources.

Justice for Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

The criminal case against a drunk driver usually goes to trial before the civil case is resolved. In these situations, we encourage the victim of the drunk driver to testify at the criminal trial. Though it can be emotionally difficult for the victim to face the drunk driver, it can help significantly in the civil case. This testimony can also provide the victim with closure and the emotional satisfaction of knowing that justice is being done.
Every year, more than 17,000 people in the U.S. are the victims of accidents caused by drunk drivers.
