Financial Support After Getting Hit by a Drunk Driver in Ohio
Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents families affected by drunk driving crashes and fights to help them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Here is Brian with some thoughts on the legal options available to these families:
When a drunk driver causes an accident that injures other people, it’s important that those victims and their families are aware of their legal options. Serious injuries suffered in drunk driving crashes can take devastating personal and financial tolls. Those who suffer injuries in these crashes deserve financial compensation for the difficulties they face.
Drunk drivers can be sued for injuries they cause in personal injury lawsuits. Additionally, there are some situations in which an alcohol vendor can be sued for injuries caused by someone they served alcohol to. This second type of lawsuit is known as a dram shop claim.
Ohio is one of many states with dram shop laws. According to Ohio’s dram shop laws, an alcohol vendor can be held liable for injuries caused by an intoxicated customer if the vendor continued serving alcohol to the customer after he or she had become visibly intoxicated, or if the customer was a minor.
