Liability For Drunk Driving Accidents in Illinois

Attorney for fatal drunk driving accidents and contributor, Guy D'Andrea helps the victims of drunk drivers find justice. He would like to add some information on third-party liability for drunk driving accidents in Illinois:

In the United States, individuals who are injured in accidents caused by intoxicated people may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against that intoxicated person. Additionally, citizens of Illinois and many other states may have the option to file a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor who served alcohol to someone who caused an injury. This second type of lawsuit is known as a dram shop claim and these claims are commonly filed following drunk driving accidents.

There are a few requirements for filing a dram shop lawsuit in Illinois:

  • The individual who caused the injury was intoxicated when the injury happened
  • The vendor sold or gave alcohol to the intoxicated person
  • The alcohol consumed by the intoxicated person was the cause of their intoxication
  • The injuries were at least partially a result of the intoxication, and
  • As a result, the injured person suffered personal injuries or property damage.

If you or a loved one was recently hit by a drunk driver and injured, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking with an experienced DUI victim lawyer. Taking legal action can help provide financial compensation for damages related to your injuries and hold accountable those responsible for the accident.
