Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Attorney:
Drunk Driving Accidents
Have you been seriously injured or did you lose a loved one as a result of an alcohol-related accident? In addition to compensation from the drunk driver, you may be entitled to receive compensation from the establishment or person that provided the driver alcohol. Dram shop laws (laws regarding the responsibility of an establishment that serves liquor) forbid a bartender from serving alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person. All individuals are prohibited from providing alcohol to minors. If an accident occurs as a result of the drunk driver being given alcohol under these circumstances, there may be additional claims that warrant investigation. Should you have questions, please contact our law firm and we will undertake the investigation required to provide you answers. It is important that you take this step at the earliest opportunity so that the necessary evidence can be preserved.
