Car Accidents Caused By Drunk Driving
Was Your Accident Caused By A Drunk Driver?
Not all car accident claims are handled the same way. At Brown Paindiris & Scott, we know the importance of finding out the cause of an accident and tailoring our approach to the facts of the case. While drunk driving accident cases may involve more clear-cut evidence of negligence than other car accident cases, there are unique aspects that require the attention of an experienced personal injury attorney.
Drunk Driving Is A Crime
Drunk driving is not simply a form of negligence; it is a crime. The personal injury claim is a civil case. At the same time, there will most likely be a criminal case against the drunk driver. While building a civil case designed to get compensation for the victim, we will simultaneously address the overlap with the criminal case. In the criminal case, the victim has rights. We will assist the victim in asserting these rights to see that justice is served in all venues.
Drunk driving accident cases may even involve a claim against a server of alcohol, such as a restaurant, bar or nightclub. These are referred to as dram shop claims.
