Lawyer Comments: Auto accident lawyer Brian Kent will discuss drunk driving lawsuit settlements in the second section of this story.
Several people were injured in a suspected drunk driving crash in Williamsburg, KY on Friday, June 12.
Officers responded to reports of a two-vehicle crash with injuries near the intersection of KY-92 West and I-75 South. Upon arrival, they found a man trapped under a vehicle.
A police press release says that 34-year-old James Goins was ejected from a 1993 Chevy S-10 pickup truck being driven by Aze Davis. Goins was trapped under the vehicle and Williamsburg Fire Department officials had to extricate him. He was brought to UT Medical Center via helicopter.
A passenger in the pickup, Samatha Struzik, was cited for marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police determined that Davis was under the influence and gave him a court citation for DUI.
Davis, Struzik, and others involved in the accident were hospitalized at Baptist Health Corbin.

Can I File a Drunk Driving Injury Lawsuit in Kentucky?
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville helps drunk driving injury victims and the families of fatal drunk driving crash victims recover the financial compensation they deserve. Laurence has offered to discuss the legal options available to these victims and families in Kentucky:
When struggling with high medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other difficulties after a drunk driving crash, it’s important to be aware of your legal options. You shouldn’t have to deal with these hardships on your own after being injured by a drunk driver. Fortunately, there are options for financial compensation.
Someone who’s been injured by a drunk driver can file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. Additionally, there are some cases where alcohol vendors can be held liable for injuries caused by customers. These are called dram shop lawsuits, and they are an option in Kentucky and many other states.
In Kentucky, a dram shop lawsuit can be filed against an alcohol vendor if the vendor served alcohol to someone who was visibly intoxicated at the time.
