Coverage from Fox 10 states on March 29th Michelle Andrade was allegedly driving under the influence on Val Vista North of Hunt Highway in Chandler, Arizona.
The vehicle hit a dirt shoulder and Andrade lost control of the car. This caused the vehicle to roll over, ejecting two passengers from the car.
Three people sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries and were hospitalized. Andrade was arrested for various DUI-related charges and endangerment charges.
Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan represents victims injured by drunk drivers and helps them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Kevin has shared some information on the legal rights of people injured by drunk drivers in Arizona:
A personal injury lawsuit can be filed directly against a drunk driver, however, this is may not be the only legal option. In some cases, alcohol vendors and social hosts can also be held liable for providing alcohol to someone who injured someone in a subsequent crash. Dram shop laws make these lawsuits possible.
Arizona’s dram shop law states that victims can be file a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor if the vendor provided alcohol to someone who was obviously overly intoxicated or under 21 years of age and if that person when on to injure or kill someone in a crash.
