How much time do I have to sue a bar or restaurant after being injured in a Michigan drunk driving accident ?
In Michigan, there are shortened time limitations in which to bring a claim against a liquor licensee under the Dram Shop Act. First there is a 120 day notice provision which requires the victim to send written notice to the liquor licensee within 120 days of retaining an attorney. Second, a dram shop lawsuit must be filed in the proper trial court within 2 years after the injury or death from the Michigan car accident. It is also necessary to name and retain the drunk driver in the lawsuit. This is another reason why it is so important to choose your lawyer as soon as possible after the accident.
