Dram Shop Lawyer, Drunk Driving, and Social Host Liability
If you have been injured because of someone using alcohol or drugs, such as a drunk driver, we are here to help you. There are special legal issues involved in these type of personal injury cases. Don’t be a victim twice by delaying to contact Mike or by hiring an inexperienced lawyer.
As personal injury lawyers, we see cases involving alcohol or drug abuse that are especially tragic and often involve catastrophic personal injuries. These accident cases arise in a variety of situations including a drunk or intoxicated tortfeasor. The end result may be a Rhode Island or Massachusetts drunk driving car accident or other type of personal injury case. In addition to the intoxicated tortfeasor, there may be others at fault such as a licensed liquor establishment (dram shop claim) or social host who over-served the tortfeasor or served a minor. Whatever the situation, at The Bottaro Law Firm LLC, we take our responsibility handling these cases seriously. There are unique insurance issues and legal claims that may apply. These cases require personal attention and investigation.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration out of the more than 37,000 people who died in traffic crashes in 2008,nearly one-third were killed in drunk driving crashes involving a driver with an illegal blood alcohol content (BAC). Drunk drivers are more likely to be uninsured or to carry severely inadequate insurance limits. We are experienced in reviewing the attendant insurance issues and dedicated to investigating these situations.
These are preventable tragedies. When we represent victims of drunk drivers and their families, we pledge a portion of our legal fees to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) to help minimize future tragedies.
