Legal Options Available to Victims and Their Families Injured or Killed By Drunk Drivers in Michigan
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.CrimVictim.Attorney works closely with victims and their families injured or killed in drunk driving accidents. Mr. Kent has generously offered to share his insight on the legal options open to these victims and their families.
“In all 50 states, if you have been injured by a drunk driver, you likely have a case for a personal injury lawsuit against that driver. However, in most states including Michigan, you may also have grounds for a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor that served the driver before the crash. There are a few circumstances that must be met in order to file a “dram shop” lawsuit”, explains Mr. Kent.
In the state of Michigan, you may have grounds for a dram shop claim against an alcohol vendor, such as a bar or a restaurant, if the establishment:
- served alcohol to a minor (someone under the age of 21), or
- served alcohol to someone who is already visibly intoxicated.
Every drunk driving injury case is different so it is important to speak to an experienced drunk driving injury lawyer to better understand your legal options.
