Were you a victim of a drunk driving accident?
Our car accident attorneys in West Virginias have a special kind of passion reserved for victims of drunk driving accidents. The conscious choice of getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol makes one liable for any damage or injury that comes from that choice. The person that caused this in your life is responsible regardless of how incapacitated he or she was at the time. Let our firm prosecute your drunk driving claim so that you have the best chance to recover the maximum amount of compensation and begin rebuilding your life today.
In our state, a drunk driving accident victim may be entitled to compensation, including punitive damages, from a number of responsible parties, rather than just the drunk driver. If a restaurant or other liquor-serving establishment continued to serve alcohol to the intoxicated driver after they were already drunk, then that establishment may be held liable for the damages sustained by the victim(s) in the accident. This additional liability is especially helpful in cases where the drunk driver was not insured, or where there is not sufficient insurance coverage available to cover the full cost of the victim's injuries.
