Legal Options for Victims Hit By Drunk Drivers

Attorney Laurence Banville is an experienced attorney with years of trial experience. In an interview, Banville shed some light on the legal options for victims of drunk driving, "Victims of drunk driving accidents or family members of those killed by drunk drivers are entitled to financial compensation for their losses. In numerous states, victims or their families, have the legal right to file a lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who sold alcohol to the driver before the accident. Cases in which alcohol vendors can be held liable is if they sold to a minor under 21 years old or to an overly intoxicated customer whose intoxication was a foreseeable cause to other's harm" "Drunk driving is a serious crime that impacts far too many victims and their families across America. While no amount of financial settlement can erase the pain and trauma endured, if you or a family member has fallen victim to a drunk driving accident, it is in your best interest to file a lawsuit to seek the compensation you deserve."
