Helping You Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable
Being hit by a drunk driver is a traumatic experience, that is, unfortunately, not all 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 deserve.
Injuries In Drunk Driving Accidents
Drivers who get behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol can cause widespread destruction. Drunk driving accidents often involve head-on collisions with other motor vehicles, pedestrians or bicyclists, which can be especially serious.
In the immediate aftermath of a drunk driving crash, it can be difficult to determine the full financial impact of the injuries. Our attorneys have represented countless injury victims, so we know how to assess these types of claims. We routinely work with medical experts and other professionals to determine economic and noneconomic damages that are fair. With their assistance, we present compelling arguments before judges and juries.
What accident claims are — 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 All Responsible Parties Accountable
If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident, consult with one of our experienced attorneys. In addition to conducting a thorough investigation into your case, we can determine whether Michigan’s Dram Shop Act applies. This law prohibits employees at restaurants, bars or taverns from selling alcohol to an underage or intoxicated driver.
