Holding Every Party Responsible After A Drunk Driving Accident
Drunk driving accidents are especially tragic, simply because they didn’t need to happen. Everyone understands that drunk driving is an irresponsible, reckless act that puts other people’s lives at risk. If you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver, you need attorneys who will be committed to helping you recover all available damages.
We are the lawyers of Robinson Salyers, PLLC. With locations in Frankfort and Shelbyville, our team has helped families across Kentucky rebuild their lives after serious accidents. When you work with us, you can take heart knowing that we will do everything we can to help you recover full compensation for your injuries.
Seeking Damages Under Kentucky’s Dram Shop Laws
Obviously, in any drunk driving accident, the drunk driver should be held accountable, both in a civil claim and in criminal courts. In some cases, however, injured people or surviving family members may be able to make a claim for damages against a bar, restaurant or another business that serves alcohol.
Under Kentucky law, if a “reasonable person under the same or similar circumstances should know that the person served is already intoxicated at the time of serving,” the business may be held liable. Our lawyers will look closely to see when and where the drunk driver consumed alcohol. We will also look at how much alcohol the drunk driver consumed. By doing so, we can hold every party accountable for your damages.
