Did a Drunk Driver Cause Your Car Accident?

When drunk driving results in serious injury or wrongful death, both the laws involved and emotions that result can vary greatly from ordinary car and truck accidents.

Victims and their families often feel a heightened need for fairness and justice. In these cases, attorneys must often pursue compensation from multiple parties and insurers, and offer effective legal counsel during a very difficult time for their clients.

At Markowitz O'Donnell, LLP, our personal injury lawyer team has handled hundreds of car, truck and motorcycle accidents, including cases involving DUI/DWI. Personal injury attorneys Joshua Markowitz and Michael O'Donnell will simultaneously pursue compensation for injuries while cooperating with law enforcement officials to help aid in ongoing criminal investigations.

We Will Go After the Driver and the Bar

A recent case illustrates our ability to resolve personal injury cases involving drunk drivers. Our client's car was struck by a drunk driver who had just left a bar. Injuries included broken bones and head injuries.

Our investigation revealed that the drunk driver had been a patron of nearby bar that she had patronized on at least four different occasions and had never been carded. We brought suit both against the driver's insurance company and against the bar under dram shop liability laws. We have settled the case for a confidential sum.
