About DUI Accident Claims And Lawsuits
Drunk driving accident claims can cover injured drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians. A successful claim should include proof that:
- The other driver had been drinking.
- The other driver’s drinking impaired their ability to safely operate the vehicle.
- The impaired driver’s negligence ultimately caused the car accident that left you injured.
In most cases, the driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) does not have to reach the .08% level (the threshold for most criminal charges) for them to be considered liable. As long as it can be shown that the driver’s abilities were impaired by some degree of intoxication, you may still be able to win your case on this basis. As your attorney, I will take extensive measures to uncover all evidence that may be used in your case. I will thoroughly review police reports of the incident, request testimony from eyewitnesses of the collision and seek the expert opinions of medical and law enforcement professionals, as needed.
Was A Bar Server To Blame? Ask About Third-Party Dram Shop Claims.
In some drunk driving accident cases, known as dram shop claims, liability is shared between the driver and the business that supplied them with alcohol. If you can prove that a restaurant or bar “overserved” the driver, who was already visibly intoxicated when served, the establishment may be held liable for the accident that ultimately resulted. The same is true in “social host claims,” or cases where minors are knowingly served alcohol by a homeowner or a negligent bar or restaurant.
Third-party liability claims in drunk driving accident cases can be complex. If you suspect that the driver who collided with you had been drinking, I strongly advise you to consult with me to learn more about bringing a lawsuit of this nature.
