When Alcohol Is A Factor In An Accident

Investigating and identifying negligence in a drunk driving accident claim often leads to the bar, restaurant or liquor store that sold/served alcohol to the individual responsible for the collision.

While drivers have a responsibility to stay off the road after drinking, establishments that provide liquor to noticeably impaired patrons must be held accountable for their actions.
