Drunk Driver Accidents
Automobile accidents caused by drunk drivers lead to serious personal injuries and fatalities every year. When these accidents happen, the victims need the help of personal injury and wrongful death attorneys who understand Ohio’s DUI and liquor licensing laws.
Who should pay?
Ohio has dram shop laws in effect that can hold servers of alcohol financially liable for customers or guests who become drunk on the premises then later injure someone in a motor vehicle accident. The law applies to bar, restaurant, liquor store, and refreshment vendor owners and employees as well as hosts of private parties.
The negligent parties may be liable for medical and lost wage costs associated with drunk driving accident injuries, such as head trauma, spinal cord injuries, and burns.
