Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys in the Four States Region
Drunk driving causes thousands of accidents and fatalities every year, changing the lives of countless families across the nation. Knowing that an individual made the reckless decision to drink and get behind the wheel is infuriating, especially if you or a loved one was injured as a result.
If you have been injured in a collision caused by a drunk driver, it is essential that you hold the negligent driver accountable. Drunk driving is unacceptable, and our drunk driving accident lawyers at Johnson, Vorhees & Martucci are here to stand up for you. We are one of the top injury law firms in the Four States region, with outstanding results and high-caliber service. Call one of our offices in Springfield and Joplin to get started.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you may be able to recover expenses for:
- Medical treatment
- Lost earning capacity
- Missing wages
- Punitive damages (in some cases)
Whether the driver responsible was driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or both, you deserve to be compensated. In order to punish impaired drivers who are the cause of a car crash, civil law in many states allows victims to recover punitive damages from the drunk driver in addition to compensatory damages.
Make sure that you have the financial resources you need to recover with peace of mind. Our firm can guide you through the personal injury claim process from start to finish so you never feel lost or alone.
Additional Damages Under Dram Shop Liability
In some cases, your source for financial recovery can be found beyond a driver’s insurance policy. If the driver responsible for your collision was served alcohol at an establishment, you may be able to pursue additional damages under dram shop laws.
Under dram shop laws, you can take legal action against the establishment that over-served the driver, especially if he or she was visibly intoxicated or is a repeat offender. Licensed alcohol vendors such as bars, taverns, restaurants, or another type of establishment can be held liable under this statute.
