Drunk Driving and the Dram Shop Laws

Drunk driving collisions are often some of the most horrific car accidents, leaving the victim of the drunk driver's actions severely injured or dead. Much has been done to combat drunk driving over the years and much more must be done to prevent drunk drivers from getting behind the wheel. If a person is injured by a drunk driver in a car accident, they have a direct claim against the drunk driver, their insurance, their business, and their property. However, when a drunk driver has no insurance and no meaningful assets to cover the victim's injuries, the victim must look for other avenues to obtain compensation for what the defendant has done to them.
