Understanding The Law And Your Rights
The law regarding drunk driving accidents is complex. Several factors could play a part in your recovery such as:
- Uninsured or underinsured motorist claims: If your drunk driving accident involves an uninsured or underinsured drunk driver, we can help you obtain the coverage you are entitled to under your own insurance.
- Dram shop liability: Was tavern owner (dram shop) liability involved in the drunk driving accident? If another party served too much alcohol to an obviously impaired person, that party may share in the liability for your injuries.
- Punitive damages: If recklessness was involved, injury victims may also be able to pursue punitive damages to punish the wrongdoer.
- Fatalities: Individuals who have lost a loved one in a drunk driving accident are entitled to pursue specific damages in a wrongful death claim.
