The Michigan drunk driving accident lawyers at our law firm represent injury victims and their families against drunk drivers and the establishment that served the alcohol. The injuries from a drunk driving accident are often catastrophic and even deadly. We hold the drunk driver and owner of the vehicle accountable for the devastating effects of the accident.
Drunk driving accident victims and their families may be able to sue the bar, restaurant, establishment, or social host that served alcohol to the intoxicated driver before the accident. These type of claim 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 the automobile and often pay substantial settlements for their own negligence.
Michigan Dram Shop Laws
The Michigan Dram shop law requires that an investigation begin as soon as possible after the accident. It also requires that the bar or restaurant in question be notified in writing about the claim within a very short time period. The failure to give this timely notice can destroy your claim.
Our drunk driving accident lawyers hire private investigators to interview witnesses and other bar patrons to prove that the establishment served alcohol to the intoxicated motorist shortly before the accident. Any delay in beginning your investigation may result in difficulty tracking down these witnesses at a later time so you 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.
