How Our West Virginia Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers Can Help

When representing you, our West Virginia drunk driving accident lawyers will act quickly to initiate legal action. This will give us the power to obtain video from the bar and parking lot and other evidence important in your case.

We will also seek to interview and depose bartenders, wait staff, patrons of the establishment and other parties. We will document the sequence of events leading to the crash, establish liability, and work diligently to build a strong personal injury case for you. Our goal will be to obtain maximum compensation for you.

Liability In Drunk Driving Accident Cases

Bars, restaurants, and other hospitality establishments that serve drunk patrons who then cause injury or death can be held liable. In West Virginia, that responsibility also applies to private individuals who serve alcohol in social settings.

When they fail to do so and a drunk driver causes injury or death, a hospitality establishment or individual can be held liable for losses. Commercial establishments carry dram shop insurance for this purpose, and an individual’s umbrella insurance coverage may provide a source of compensation. We will also target the drunk driver when seeking compensation.

Our West Virginia car accident attorneys will identify all possible sources of compensation and seek the best possible settlement or jury award for you. If you lost a loved one in a drunk driving accident, you may be able to seek compensation through a wrongful death claim.

Compensation in a West Virginia Drunk Driving Accident Case

When a drunk person gets into a vehicle and drives, it endangers everyone on the road. The result can be a devastating accident that kills or injures another driver, motorcyclist, pedestrian or bicyclist.

As the victim of a drunk driver, you may be able to claim compensation from the driver and driver’s insurance company. You may also be able to claim compensation from the bar or social host who served alcohol to the driver. Punitive damages are also a possible avenue for compensation. Such cases however, can involve complex issues and require careful investigation by an experienced West Virginia drunk driving accident lawyer.
