Drunk Driving Accident

Tennessee Liquor Liability Attorneys -- Drunk Driving Accident

drunk drivingUnfortunately, it happens all too often. An intoxicated driver makes the decision to drive themselves home and causes a serious accident. Without question, the intoxicated driver is responsible for the harm he or she causes. But if the intoxicated driver got drunk in a bar, restaurant, club, theater, etc., then the establishment who oversold alcohol to the driver may be liable too.

According to the New York Times, restaurants generate 40 to 50% of their profits from the sale of beer, wine and liquor. This provides a powerful incentive for restaurants to push alcohol sales. In fact, some restaurants will hold contests in which the server with the most overall alcohol sales or the most sales of a particular alcoholic beverage will be financially rewarded. In this environment, servers and owners are prone to turn a blind eye to a drunk customer. And if they do, they should be held accountable for their actions.

If you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver and you suspect the driver had been drinking at a restaurant, bar, country club or other commercial establishment, contact one of our liquor liability attorneys immediately. A prompt and thorough investigation by one of our experienced attorneys can mean the difference between winning or losing. For instance, many national restaurant chains maintain video footage of the interior of the bar and restaurant premises but the footage is only kept for a limited time. This footage can be critical in demonstrating the drunk driver was "obviously intoxicated" as it may depict the drunk driver stumbling, bumping into other customers or slumping over the bar, etc.

So do not delay, contact us any time of day at 615-742-4880 or toll-free at 866-812-8787 or contact us online for a free, no-obligation consultation. We handle all liquor liability cases on a contingency basis so we only get paid if we recover money for you and your family. And, you will never be out of pocket any money to pursue your drunk driving case as we advance all case expenses.
