Drunk Driving

West Chester, Mason, and Cincinnati Ohio

Every 30 minutes, someone in this country dies in an alcohol-related crash. Last year alone, over one million people were injured in alcohol-related traffic crashes. In a lawsuit arising from a drunk driving accident, in addition to the intoxicated driver being held liable for the injuries he or she caused, a bar or social host may be liable for damages if they served an obviously intoxicated guest, who then drove and caused an accident. The fact that the person who served the intoxicated driver alcohol may be held liable does not relieve the intoxicated driver of liability, however. Experienced accident attorneys are aware of the many laws governing legal responsibility and can help you identify who might be held responsible for your injuries, including people or businesses you may not have considered.

Conclusion

In the above case it is essential that accident victims take prompt measures to preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and have physicians or other expert witnesses thoroughly evaluate any injuries. If you have been a victim of an automobile accident, do not hesitate to call upon personal injury attorneys who are skilled and experienced in accident cases to assess your situation and determine the best methods for you to obtain any compensation available for the damages you suffered.
