Drunk Driving Accidents
Drinking establishments, liquor stores and even hosts of private parties can be held liable for injuries and deaths caused by drunk drivers they serve. Referred to as "dram shop" laws, liability in drunk driving accidents transfers to anyone who knowingly served alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person. At The Law Office of Casey W. Stevens, our lawyers review bar tabs, credit card statements, video footage when available, and interview eyewitnesses to determine how much alcohol a person was served prior to his or her causing an accident. Consulting forensic specialists and alcohol experts, we provide jurors with information regarding the blood alcohol content (BAC) of a drunk driver during the time prior to the accident.
We have the resources and knowledge needed to hold bars, restaurants, liquor stores and hosts of private parties responsible for their actions.

Drunk driving accidents can result in serious head, neck, back, and spine injuries. In some cases, drunk driving accidents are fatal. In order to ensure our clients receive just compensation for their losses, our attorneys work with experienced medical economists and life care planners. We provide cost-data projections covering the cost of current and future medical care, lost wages, and diminished quality of life. We demand nothing less than an award or settlement proportional to our clients’ financial losses and emotional suffering.Holding Negligent Servers of Alcohol Financially Liable
The majority of restaurants, bars and liquor stores involved in dram shop cases vigorously deny any culpability in drunk driving accident cases. However, in reviewing bar or restaurant tabs and credit card statements, we can often establish when and how many drinks were ordered. Using eyewitness testimony from other patrons or staff members, our lawyers are often able to establish clear evidence of visible intoxication. In the case of liquor stores, most have store security camera footage. Difficulty walking and exaggerated motions usually betray intoxication at the time of a purchase.Contact Us to Help With Your Drunk Driving Accident Injuries
