Recently, I read a blog - The Disturbing State of College Drinking. The blog discussed 10 scary facts about college age drinking, and the serious injuries and untimely deaths each year that are alcohol related.
Too many people die each year from drunk driving. To me, it's personal. My cousin was killed by a drunk driver when she was 17 years old. The middle of the day. A promising life cut short because of the drunk driving of another.
Sometimes, no one other than the drunk driver is to blame. Oftentimes, the drunk driver has been at a bar, and the bar keeps giving drinks (as long as they are getting paid) to the obviously intoxicated person. In those cases, there could be what is called a Dram Shop Liability action.
Our firm has handled those kind of cases. We investigate to make sure those who are legally responsible for injuries and deaths from alcohol-related accidents are held accountable.
