Common Injuries in Drunk Driving Accidents

Injuries sustained from drunk driving accidents can be severe, and commonly include:

  • Head Injuries
  • Neck Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Internal Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Broken Bones
  • Abrasions
  • Contusions
  • Dismemberment
  • Paralysis
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia

These types of trauma can cause irreparable damage, not only physically, but also to your quality of life. Accumulating medical expenses and being unable to work often lead to unexpected financial strain on you and your family. Especially if lifelong care is required.

Potentially Liable Parties

Although the majority of the blame for the accident will fall on the intoxicated driver, who will also likely face criminal charges, they may not be the only party responsible. Arizona’s dram shop liability laws states that other negligent parties that you may be able to sue:

  • Bar / Restaurant Owners
  • Servers and Bartenders
  • Night Clubs
  • Security Staff at Bars and Clubs
  • Managers of establishments serving alcohol
  • Driver’s Employer

Bartenders, managers, and owners of establishments serving alcohol can also be held liable if they over-served the driver who hit you. They are then partially responsible for allowing the person to become intoxicated. If you believe one of these parties is to blame for your accident, our drunk driving dram shop liability attorneys can help.
