We look for all possible compensation for clients
People injured in accidents caused by drunk drivers may be able to obtain compensation from two sources. The first is the at-fault driver who may have crossed the center line, exceeded the speed limit or failed to stop at a stop sign. The other possible source of payment is the bar, restaurant or nightclub who may have over-served the at-fault driver. Washington state’s dram shop law allows injured parties to seek compensation from restaurant and bar owners in certain circumstances when drunk patrons cause accidents.
Investigating your case to get at the truth
Our firm has an experienced investigator on staff who will determine the facts of the case. We look for violations of liquor law, such as the failure of a bar or nightclub to request ID or the failure of a restaurant to stop serving an obviously drunk customer. We try to learn the speed of the drunk driver’s vehicle. We review accident and police reports and interview witnesses.
Serious injuries are common
Because of the high speed at which drunk driving accidents occur, the victim’s injuries are often severe. Fatalities leading to wrongful death cases are common. We work hard to obtain the compensation you will need to recover from your injuries or move forward after the loss of a loved one.
