Who is Liable for Drunk Driving Injuries?

Negligence in a DUI accident often extends beyond the intoxicated driver. At Simeone & Miller, we believe that ALL parties that contributed to your injuries should be held accountable for their irresponsible actions.

Other liable parties may include:

  • The bar or establishment - if the driver was overserved at a bar or restaurant, you may be able to file a claim against the establishment.
  • The owner of the vehicle - if the driver borrowed a vehicle and the owner knew (or had reason to believe) that the person was intoxicated, they may be responsible for damages.
  • The driver's employer - if the driver became intoxicated at a work event, it may be possible to bring a claim against the employer who overserved.

If you or a loved one was harmed by a drunk driver, you deserve justice from those who contributed to the accident. Our DC drunk driving accident attorneys have the resources and skill to thoroughly investigate the events that led to your injuries and pursue compensation for all responsible parties. Call us at (202) 888-0872 so that we can get started on your case.

Contributory Negligence in Drunk Driving Cases

While drunk driving is considered one of the worst acts of negligence that a person can commit, it may not be enough to recover compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.

The District of Columbia operates under a contributory negligence law, which means injury claims are an all or nothing matter; if the negligent driver's legal counsel can prove that you are even 1% at fault for the accident, you may be barred from recovering any compensation.

This is why it's crucial to hire an experienced and competent DC drunk driving accident lawyer to represent your best interests with the insurance company or in court (if the case goes to trial). A skilled attorney from Simeone & Miller knows the stakes of DUI injury claims and what evidence is necessary to support our client's case.

Seeking Compensation for Wrongful Death

If your loved one was killed in a DUI accident, you can bring a wrongful death lawsuit on their behalf to recover damages for any medical expenses incurred before death, funeral costs, lost companionship, pain and suffering, and more. Our team is standing by to provide the compassionate counsel you need, so call our office today. When you work with us, you don’t have to worry about upfront legal costs; you only pay us if we make a recovery for you.

Will a Criminal Case Affect My Claim?

Drunk driving accidents involve both criminal and civil sides of the law. If you or a loved one was injured by a drunk driver, they should be facing DUI/DWI charges. However, the American justice system is not foolproof and many drunk drivers are not convicted of their charges.

Thankfully, criminal and civil cases are handled separately in DC. Even if the driver who injured you does not face criminal charges, you can still pursue financial compensation for the damages you have sustained.
