Personal Injury Claims When DUI/DWI Is a Factor
In many ways, a legal case involving a drunk driver is similar to any other personal injury lawsuit. However, the fact that the person at the wheel may have been committing the crime of DUI/DWI adds additional dimensions to your case. Punitive damages may be recoverable against a drunk driver.
Dram Shop Liability
The question of who provided alcohol to the drunk driver becomes very important, especially if your vehicle was struck by a vehicle operated by an underage drunken driver. If a bar or restaurant served liquor to an obviously inebriated person, or an underage person, who in turn caused an accident that injured you or killed your family member, that establishment may be held responsible through dram shop liability and we may be able to sue for over-serving a patron. Anyone providing alcohol to an underage drinker may be responsible for injuries or deaths caused by the underage drinker. Compensation may provide the financial relief that you and your family need to cover expenses such as the following:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- An adapted van and/or necessary remodeling at home to accommodate use by the newly disabled person
- Compensation for pain and suffering, including loss of consortium/loss of companionship for a wife or husband
- Lost income
- Diminished quality of life
