Recovering Financial Compensation After a Drunk Driving Crash in Arizona

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin has helped many victims of drunk driving crashes recover the financial compensation they deserve. We’ve asked Kevin to share some general information on the legal rights of those injured in Arizona drunk driving accidents:

Drunk driving crashes are some of the most common causes of serious injuries and deaths. There is no excuse for getting behind the wheel while intoxicated and endangering the lives of other motorists and pedestrians. When someone gets injured or killed by a drunk driver, that victim has legal rights and is often entitled to financial compensation.

In all 50 states, people who have been injured by drunk drivers may file a personal injury lawsuit against that driver. However, the legal options available to these victims don’t always end there. In Arizona and many other states, there are some situations in which these victims may file a dram shop lawsuit against an alcohol vendor for injuries caused by an intoxicated customer.

Dram shop laws vary from state to state. According to Arizona’s dram shop laws, an alcohol vendor can be held liable for providing alcohol to a customer who caused a drunk driving crash if the customer was either obviously intoxicated or under 21 years old.
