Undoubtedly, the drunk driver will face criminal charges for making the reckless decision to drink and drive. Though the negligent driver was penalized for the crime, that offers little help to the family struggling with the aftermath of a serious injury or fatality.

A Tradition Of Pursuing Accountability

Since 1931, the attorneys of our Springfield law firm have been committed to helping clients recover. When our clients are involved in a serious car crash, such as a drunk driving accident, we analyze all angles of liability to ensure maximum compensation is recovered for their damages.

In addition to pursuing compensation through the negligent driver’s insurance coverage and the accident victim’s underinsured motorist coverage, we address other liability claims unique to drunk driving accidents.

Dramshop Laws And Social Host Laws

Bars, restaurants, nightclubs and social hosts have a duty to serve liquor responsibly. If a patron is visibly drunk, the establishment has a right — and a responsibility — to stop serving alcohol to the patron. If the drunken individual drinks too much alcohol, drives away and is subsequently involved in a drunk driving accident, the establishment can be held financially responsible for damages associated with the injuries or fatalities that result from the accident.

The personal injury and wrongful death lawyers at our firm utilize thorough investigation techniques to determine the string of events leading up to the crash. In some cases, there may be multiple commercial establishments that overserved the individual. When this is the case, our law firm pursues multiple dramshop liability claims on behalf of the drunk driving accident injury victim and family.
