Drunk Driving Accidents & Collisions in Missouri

Accidents involving drunk drivers take place on a daily basis in Missouri; unfortunately, the injuries those who are innocent victims suffer are often serious or even deadly.  A staggering (or sobering) fact is that in 2008, approximately 38% of deadly collisions that took place in Missouri involved operating a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol.  What you may not realize if you or a loved one become a victim is that not only may the driver be held accountable, but a restaurant, bar, or other establishment that continued to serve alcohol to an individual who had clearly had enough to drink.  

The job of an experienced Kansas City personal injury attorney is to not only protect your legal rights, but work to determine all parties who may have been negligent from the motorist who was operating a vehicle while under the influence, to those establishments who may have contributed to the inebriated state of the driver.  When someone operates a vehicle while intoxicated, any accident or collision that results in the injury or death of an innocent victim is a serious criminal offense.  As a victim, you may be entitled to compensation of medical costs, property damage, lost wages due to the inability to work, pain and suffering, and other damages.  

Most personal injury cases are settled out of court, however it is vital to understand the responsible party's insurance company will use every possible tactic to settle with victims for less than they truly deserve.  This is why it is important to have a seasoned lawyer in your corner who will insist on a reasonable and fair settlement with the responsible party's insurance provider, or fight on your behalf in court to ensure you are awarded the full damages you deserve.
