Protecting The Rights Of People Injured By Drunk Drivers
After decades of awareness campaigns, heartbreaking stories, and punishment for offenders, drunk driving remains a serious problem. In Indiana and Illinois, hundreds of people are killed or seriously injured each year by people who get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
If someone in your family was hurt because of the negligence and selfishness of a drunk driver, you should talk to an experienced motor vehicle accident attorney about your legal rights. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost income, and/or other damages, but you will need a lawyer to represent you.

In addition to seeking compensation from the intoxicated person who caused the alcohol-related accident, victims can also pursue compensation from the business, person, or social host who sold, served, or furnished alcohol to the inebriated person. Losses recoverable under such dram shop and social host claims include medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
