Dealing with Drunk Drivers

A crash involving an impaired driver is never accident, when someone makes the choice to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol, they are actively endangering their own lives and the lives of everyone else they share the road with.

Not only can the driver be held liable in cases of injury or death involving a drunk driver, but in some cases the establishment that provided the alcohol consumed can be held responsible if it is found that they continued to provide beverages after the individual appeared intoxicated.  

These laws very state to state and apply on a case by case basis which is why if you or a loved one are victim to a drunk driver its important to consult with an experienced team of personal injury lawyers like the ones at at Davis Law Group.
