Michigan Drunk Driver Cases Against Drunk Drivers and Bars
The Michigan drunk driver accident lawyers at our firm represent injury victims against drunk drivers and the establishment that served the alcohol. Motorists and pedestrians injured by Michigan drunk and intoxicated drivers have legal rights against the negligent driver and often also against the bar, restaurant, or establishment that served the drunk driver the alcohol that caused the intoxication. This is called a Dram Shop case. The establishment that served the alcohol can be sued for furnishing an intoxicated person alcohol before they got behind the wheel of an automobile.
Michigan Dram Shop Law
The Michigan Dram shop law requires that an investigation into the accident begin as soon as possible. It also requires that the bar or restaurant in question be notified within a very narrow period. Our Michigan personal injury lawyers will hire private investigators to interview witnesses and other bar patrons to prove that the establishment served alcohol to an intoxicated motorist shortly before the accident. A delay in beginning this investigation may result in difficulty tracking down these witnesses later, or may mean that the time limit for naming the bar expires. Therefore, a person injured because of a drunk driver should call an attorney immediately to begin working on the case. This also applies to families seeking compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one in a fatal drunk driving accident.
