Drunk Driver Accidents
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, there were 5,428 alcohol-related crashes last year. Of these crashes, 281 people were killed and 3,720 were injured. Alcohol-related accidents are preventable, and if you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to a drunk driver, it is important to get legal representation.
It is possible to recover damages not only from the drunk driver’s insurance company, but from the establishment that served alcohol to the driver. Restaurants and bars can be held accountable if they over-serve a patron and allow that person to get behind the wheel of a car. Credit card receipts can be obtained and any patrons that witnessed the driver being over-served can be interviewed.
It is also possible that the drunk driver may be uninsured or underinsured. If this is the case, you can collect compensation from the uninsured/underinsured provision on your own insurance policy. However, if the uninsured driver has personal assets, such as a house, car or business investments, you can take legal action to liquidate any assets to cover your damages.
