Drunk driving: In a single year, more than 10,000 people die in alcohol-related car accidents, and far more victims deal with serious injuries. Here at Thurswell Law, we are ready to help you or a loved one recover monetary compensation from a drunk driver. In Michigan, it is possible to recover monetary compensation from both the drunk driver as well as the establishment that served alcohol to the driver.

Nobody should have to go through the pain that drunk driving accidents cause, from grieving over the death of a loved one to the rehabilitation that comes after sustaining serious injuries. That is why we are here to make sure you are fairly compensated for your suffering. You should not have to pay for the medical bills or funeral resulting from an accident that was someone else’s fault.

When an Accident Occurs – Who Is Responsible?

When people decide to drive drunk, they are endangering themselves and everyone around them. When this decision causes death or injury, as it so often does, the driver 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.

We will we go after the drunk driver. And, thanks to Michigan dram shop laws, we can hold the establishment that over-served the drunk driver responsible as well. Dram shop laws essentially say that bars, restaurants, even hosts of parties have a duty to avoid over-serving, especially when they know that the person they’re serving will be getting behind the wheel. When an establishment over-serves and a drunk driving accident results, the establishment should pay for its irresponsible actions. These settlements can only be won if the establishment is properly notified of the claim in a timely fashion; if it is not given a written notice within a certain time period, it cannot be held responsible.

Rear-End Collisions – Who is Responsible?

Over 6 million car accidents are reported in the U.S. each year. Of these, more than 2.5 million are rear-end collisions, making them the most common type of automobile accident in the United States.

Where Rear-End Collisions Happen

While rear-end collisions can occur virtually anywhere, there are certain situations that may put you more at risk than others. These situations include:

  • Drunk Driving
  • stop lights and high-volume intersections
  • situations involving rapid acceleration and deceleration (such as traffic, construction zones)
  • parking lots

Injuries Resulting from Rear-End Collisions

While all Michigan car accidents are serious, rear-end collisions produce some of the worst consequences. Drivers and passengers can sustain many different types of injuries as the result of a rear-end collision, including:

  • neck and back sprains
  • soft tissue injuries
  • broken bones
  • serious head or brain damage from whiplash

The serious effects of whiplash can take months and sometimes years before they show up. For this reason, it is important that you seek immediate medical attention after being involved in a rear-end collision.
