ALCOHOL RELATED INJURIES
After a drunk driving accident, a critical question is: Where did the inebriated driver obtain his or her liquor? A DUI citation is an indication that drunk driving may have contributed to the accident. This factor may be relevant in determining negligence and liability. Accident reconstruction should seek to discover all pertinent facts, including whether a driver was impaired.
If a bar or restaurant continued to serve a customer alcoholic beverages despite the fact that the person appeared intoxicated, that establishment may be held accountable. Therefore, a detailed investigation of the cause of a crash should include a review of the drunk driver’s comings and goings before the accident.
