Drunk drivers cause collisions that seriously injure numerous victims each year. In the most tragic cases, these accidents prove to be fatal. If you or a loved one has been harmed by the actions of a drunk driver, it is important to ensure that all negligent parties are held accountable to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

At the law firm of Centuori & Associates, PC, our attorneys serve as dedicated advocates for seriously injured accident victims. We will leave no stone unturned when it comes to investigating the circumstances that led up to the accident in an effort to help you receive full and fair compensation.

Ensuring That All Negligent Parties Are Held Accountable

The act of getting behind the wheel while impaired is obviously negligent. However, other parties may share some of the liability for the accident as well. Dram shop laws are designed to hold businesses accountable when employees serve alcohol to a person who was clearly intoxicated or whom employees should have known was intoxicated. If, during the course of our investigation, we find that a bar, restaurant or other business acted negligently, we will work to hold the business accountable to help you recover the maximum amount of compensation.

Fatal Accident Claims

Sadly, many drunk driving collisions result in injuries that prove to be fatal. If you have lost a loved one as the result of a drunk driver, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim. We understand that no amount of compensation can make up for what you have lost. However, we can help send a strong message that acts of negligence will not be tolerated.

Civil Cases Vs. Criminal Cases

Because drunk driving is against the law, the driver will often face criminal charges. It is important to keep in mind that criminal proceedings are separate from personal injury civil proceedings. Even if a driver is acquitted of all criminal charges, he or she may still be held liable in civil court.
