When drunk drivers kill innocent motorists in alcohol related motor vehicle accidents, there are generally two parties to blame: the drunk, and the enterprise that allowed the drunk to get drunk.
In these senseless events, the loved ones of the victim certainly deserve to see the drunk driver sentenced to jail. But jail doesn’t compensate for the pain, the grief, the injury, and jail doesn’t replace the income lost or the medical bills incurred.
These folks deserve compensation, and contacting a lawyer to help obtain that compensation would be a smart thing to do, although not required. The insurance companies for the driver and the bar that served the driver can be expected to dodge responsibility at all costs. Therefore, the assistance of a competent attorney may prove the difference between justice and injustice.
