Burger King Customer Seriously Injured in Collision with Suspected Drunk Driver

One person suffered serious injuries after a suspected drunk driver crashed into a Burger King in Mesa, Arizona on Saturday, December 14.

According to the Mesa Police Department, the suspected drunk driver pulled up to the drive-thru lane at the Burger King near University Drive and Lindsay Road early Saturday morning. Employees suspected that this driver was drunk and asked him to pull around and park while waiting for his order.

As the driver drove towards a parking spot, employees called the police. However, before officers could arrive, the suspected drunk driver drove over a divider and into the wall of the restaurant.

One person inside of this restaurant suffered a serious leg injury in the crash and was transported to an area hospital. The suspected drunk driver was detained by police and this crash remains under investigation.

The names of the suspected drunk driver and victim have not been released.

Financial Compensation for People Injured by Drunk Drivers in Arizona

Attorney Kevin Biniazin helps recover financial compensation for people who have been injured by drunk drivers. Here are some thoughts from Brian on the legal rights and financial compensation options for people who have been hit by drunk drivers in Arizona:

If you’ve been injured in a crash with a drunk driver, it’s important to consider your legal rights and options for financial compensation. No one should have to worry about paying medical bills, supporting themselves while out of work, or any other financial difficulties because of an injury caused by a drunk driver.

In Arizona and many other states, drunk drivers are not the only parties who can be held liable for injuries caused by drunk drivers. In some cases, dram shop laws in these states allow those injured by drunk drivers to file lawsuits against alcohol vendors for negligently serving a drunk driver before the crash.

According to Arizona’s dram shop laws, alcohol vendors can be held liable for serving someone who was either obviously intoxicated or under age 21 if that person goes on to injure someone else because of their intoxication.
