Financial Compensation for People Injured by Drunk Drivers in Arizona
Attorney Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney 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 injured 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.
