Jemie Robertson Accused of Driving Drunk, Injuring 2 in Crash

Two people were injured after their vehicle was rear-ended by a suspected drunk driver at the intersection of East Riverside Drive and South Governor Street in Evansville on Thursday night. Below you can read attorney comments offered to The Legal Herald about accidents such as this one.

Police responded to reports of a crash at the intersection and a witness told officers that he saw the driver of a Chevrolet, 48-year-old Jemie Robertson, veering in and out of her lane while driving on East Riverside Drive. According to the witness, the Chevrolet rear-ended another vehicle at a red light at Governor Road.

The driver of the other vehicle and a teenage passenger were both injured in the collision.

According to the police, Robertson’s breath smelled of alcohol. A breathalyzer test showed her blood-alcohol content as 0.10. However, she was given a blood test at a nearby hospital and her BAC measured at 0.246 – over three times the legal limit.

Robertson has been charged with driving with a license suspended with injury, OMVWI, OMVWI-BAC .15% or more, and driving with suspended prior.

Financial Compensation For People Injured by Drunk Drivers in Indiana

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson of Wagner Reese occasionally provides advice to The Legal Herald to help drunk driving crash injury victims recover the financial compensation they need and deserve. Here are some thoughts from Jeff on the financial compensation options available to drunk driving injury victims in Indiana:

In Indiana and several other states, drunk drivers are not the only ones who can be held liable for injuries and deaths caused in crashes. In some situations, alcohol vendors can also be sued for serving alcohol to someone who injured others in a drunk driving crash. These alcohol vendor lawsuits are called dram shop claims.

Certain conditions must be met to file a dram shop lawsuit against an alcohol vendor. In Indiana, a dram shop lawsuit can be filed if alcohol was provided to someone who the vendor knew was intoxicated at the time and this intoxication was a foreseeable cause of injuries suffered.

It’s important to be aware of your legal rights after being hit by a drunk driver, as these injuries can come with serious financial and personal difficulties. You can learn more about your right to financial compensation in a free consultation with one of our experienced dram shop lawyers.
