Our Michigan drunk driving accidentlawyers represent injury victims against drunk drivers and the establishment that served the alcohol. In Michigan, any driver with blood-alcohol absorption (BAC) above .08 percent is considered "per se intoxicated" under the law. Driving under the influence is a serious offense and is the cause of many wrongful deaths in Michigan.
Michigan Alcohol Related Prevention
As a resource for our clients we have provided a list of ways you can protect yourself so that you may not become a victim of drunk driver:
- Volunteer to be a designated driver
- Always use a safety seat belt
- Use four-lane highways whenever possible
- Avoid travel after midnight (especially on Friday's and Saturday's)
- Drive defensively
- Choose vehicles with airbags
- Refer to safety ratings before selecting your next vehicle
- Never drive when fatigued
- Don't do anything that would distract you from keeping your full attention on the road (i.e. talking on the phone, texting, eating, putting on make-up)
- Steer clear of aggressive drivers
Michigan Dram Shop Lawsuits
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 drunk driving accident 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.
