Legal Recourse For Drunk Driving Victims and Families in Arizona

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin helps the victims of drunk drivers and the families of those killed by them recover the financial compensation they deserve for the damages they’ve suffered. Here are some of his thoughts on liability for drunk driving accidents in Arizona:

Along with having the option to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim against the drunk driver, victims of alcohol-related accidents in Arizona may, in some situations, have the option to file a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor who provided alcohol to the individual who caused the accident.

According to Arizona’s dram shop laws, liquor licensees can be held liable for selling alcohol to someone who was:

  • obviously intoxicated, or
  • a minor, if the licensee knew the minor was under age 21 or did not request an ID.

If you or a loved one was recently hit by a drunk driver and would like to learn more about your legal options, we advise speaking with an experienced DUI accident victim lawyer.
