Drunk Driver Accidents and Dram Shop Liability Claims
No matter how severe the criminal penalties for DUI, people continue to drink and drive, often with tragic results.
If you were injured in a car crash that was caused by someone driving under the influence of alcohol, it is important to speak to a personal injury attorney about your legal options. You may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit and pursue financial compensation from those who caused or contributed to the drunk driver accident.
The attorneys at Koskoff Koskoff & Bieder, PC, will move quickly to investigate the circumstances of your case to assess whether the drunk driver involved was negligently served alcohol at a bar or restaurant. If so, we will take legal action to hold the driver and the alcohol vendor responsible for the damages they caused.
Preserving the Evidence, Pursuing the Truth
It is extremely important to contact us as soon as possible after a drunk driver accident so that evidence — including video tapes — can be identified and preserved. In once such case, a bartender testified that he had served a patron two drinks; the video tape showed he served him seven. The patron then left the bar, got into his car and caused an accident that forever changed our client's life and the lives of his family members.
