Pursuing Compensation from Negligent Drivers
Someone who causes an accident while driving under the influence of alcohol is negligent. The authorities will hold that driver responsible for the injuries and damage that occurred. Unfortunately, that does not mean getting the financial help you need is easy.
Many drunk drivers are repeat offenders and may not have a valid license or insurance. This can make it very difficult to receive full compensation. However, drunk driving may involve liability from other parties as well.
A court can find a restaurant or bar liable if they served alcohol to someone who:
- Lacked motor skills
- Had bloodshot eyes
- Slurred their speech
- Was stumbling
- Smelled strongly of alcohol
