Our wrongful death lawyers recently settled Kent County wrongful death lawsuit arising out of a Grand Rapids car accident. Our client was killed after a drunk driver failed to stop at a traffic signal in an intersection and struck our clients car, causing a T-bone collision. The lawsuit was filed in the Kent County Circuit Court and settled for insurance policy limits.
According to MADD, over 5,000 people were injured and 299 people were killed in alcohol-related traffic crashes in Michigan in 2009. If you ever suspect someone of driving drunk it is important that you call the police immediately. Signs that a driver is driving under the influence could include, but not limited to abruptly speeding or slowing down, stopping without reason, drifting in and out of lanes, turning wider than normal, driving with headlights off and more.
Victims of drunk driving accidents and their surviving families often deal with more than the physical injuries suffered when hit by a drunk driver. Often times the victim and/or surviving family members feel psychologically violated and emotionally wronged as well when hurt by an intoxicated driver. Our lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. not only sue the drunk driver but also the establishments that served them the beer or liquor that caused their intoxication just before the crash.
