Holding The Responsible Parties Accountable For Your Accident

After a drunk driver causes an accident, they typically will face DUI charges. However, just because they face a misdemeanor or felony criminal charges does not mean that you automatically will recover compensation for your losses. Like with other motor vehicle accidents, you still need to file a personal injury claim to obtain damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, lost future income, rehabilitation costs and pain and suffering.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may hold other parties liable for causing your accident. Illinois has an established Dram Shop Act, which holds bars, restaurants and other establishments responsible for injuries that happen after the establishment serves the at-fault party alcohol.

To hold a third-party establishment liable, you must prove that the vendor sold alcohol to the party, the alcohol contributed to their intoxication and the intoxication caused your injuries. When you work with us at Orzoff Law Offices, we will thoroughly examine the facts and circumstances of your case to help you determine if you can hold other parties liable.
