Helping You Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable

Being hit by a drunk driver is a devastating and traumatic experience. Unfortunately, it's not all that uncommon. In 2016, the most recent year for which such statistics are available, the CDC reports that 10,497 people died in alcohol-related automobile crashes — that's 29 people per day or one death every 50 minutes.

At Lipton Law, we find these statistics particularly alarming. That's one of the reasons we fight so hard to get victims of drunk driving accidents the compensation they deserve, the justice they desire and the results they need. We will work diligently to give you the edge you need.

Injuries In Drunk Driving Accidents

Drivers who get behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol can cause widespread destruction — they can collide with other motor vehicles, injure pedestrians or bicyclists on the road and cause property damage in myriad ways. Drunk driving accidents often involve head-on collisions, which can be especially serious or deadly.

In the immediate aftermath of a drunk driving crash, it can be difficult to determine the full financial impact of the injuries — from broken bones and spinal cord injuries to amputations and brain injuries, it can be hard to see how long the injuries will last, how severe they are and how they will impact your life.

Holding A Negligent Drunk Driver Accountable

If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident in Michigan, consult with an experienced personal injury attorney at Lipton Law to begin building a strong case against the at-fault driver. In addition to conducting a thorough investigation into your case, we can look into whether Michigan's Dram Shop Act applies, under which a restaurant or another establishment can be held accountable if it knowingly sold the drunk driver alcohol when he or she already appeared to be impaired or was under aged.

At Lipton Law, our drunk driving accident victim lawyers are dedicated to obtaining justice for injured victims and the family members of those killed in accidents involving intoxicated drivers.
