How We Can Help:
Negotiating and litigating a drunk driver car accident case can be more complex than in typical automobile accident cases. This is because there are frequently additional sources from which to pursue recovery. In the average car accident personal injury case, your attorney will primarily pursue compensation from the at-fault driver’s automobile liability insurance company. In a car accident involving a drunk driver, you may also have valid claims under North Carolina’s “Dram Shop” laws or under a “Social Host Liability” theory. These theories can allow recovery against a bar or party host that provided the visibility intoxicated at-fault driver alcohol, while knowing that he or she intended to operate their vehicle. These claims can be difficult to prove, and you should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident to protect your rights against these parties.
