Drunk drivers cause some of the most serious car accidents. The more seriously impaired the driver, the more likely a T-bone, rear-end or high-speed collision. Drunk drivers run red lights, they cross highway medians, and cause fatal and severe injuries. They also frequently flee the scene, as they know they are in big trouble.
Society has become less tolerant of drunk driving, a highly irresponsible behavior that has taken the lives and health of our loved ones. Today, other responsible parties, in addition to the drunk driver, can be held liable. If a restaurant, bar or liquor store served someone visibly intoxicated, knowing he or she was likely to drive soon thereafter, it can face financial liability.
Lakewood Attorney James L. Finegan seeks justice for those hurt by drunk drivers throughout the Denver area.
An individual who serves alcohol to minors can also be held liable in Colorado. The key to all these cases is gathering enough evidence to convince a civil jury of who was at fault. Witnesses must be located and testify. Sometimes this is a passerby, sometimes an employee of the bar, and sometimes a bar patron or even an acquaintance of the drunk driver.
There may be surveillance video that caught the driver staggering to his or her car. Attorney James L. Finegan is not new to these cases. He has more than 30 years of experience in practice and is highly effective in obtaining the compensation you and your family deserve.
Juries are fairly sympathetic toward victims of drunk drivers. Defendants in these cases know that and are usually willing to offer a generous settlement to avoid going to trial.
