Drunk Driving Accident
Are You A Victim of a Drunk Driver?
Drunk driving is an everyday occurrence. In 2013 alone more than ten thousand people died due to an alcohol-related car accident, and even more dealt with injuries. Here at Thurswell Law, we are ready to represent you or a loved one recover monetary compensation from a drunk driver. In Michigan, under some circumstances we can recover monetary compensation from both the drunk driver as well as the establishment that served the driver alcohol in the first place, whether this be a bar, restaurant, or host of a party.
Nobody should have to go through the pain that drunk driving can cause, from grieving over the death of a loved one to the rehabilitation that comes after sustaining injuries. This is why we are here to make sure you are fairly compensated for your loss. You can never replace what you’ve lost, but you should recover for the pain you have suffered and you should not have to worry about the cost of medical bills, a hospital stay, or a funeral.
Who Is Responsible?
When people decide to drive drunk, they are endangering themselves and everyone around them. If this decision results in death or injury, as it so often does, he or she must own up to the consequences. Thurswell Law works diligently so that you and your loved ones receive a settlement that can alleviate the grief and pain this accident caused you and your family.
Not only will we go after the drunk driver, but due to Michigan Dram shop laws, we can hold the establishment that over served the drunk driver responsible. Dram shop law essentially says that bars, restaurants, even hosts of parties have a duty to avoid over serving, especially when they know that the person will be getting behind the wheel. When an establishment over serves and it results in a drunk driving accident, they often end up paying for their irresponsible actions. These settlements can only be won if the establishment is properly notified of this claim in a timely fashion; if they are not given a written notice within a certain time period, they will not be held responsible.
