Seeking Compensation After a Drunk Driving Accident
An individual who is injured by a drunk driver can seek compensation to cover accident-related expenses:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitative costs
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
The individual who was drinking and driving will likely be criminally prosecuted for DUI/DWI. In addition to compensatory damages, the accident victim may also be awarded punitive damages. This compensation is intended to punish the individual who was drinking and driving.
Dram Shop Laws
The individual who made the decision to drink and drive is ultimately responsible for his or her actions. However, if a liquor-serving establishment such as a bar, restaurant, or nightclub served alcohol to an obviously intoxicated individual, can they be held partially responsible?
Hawaii has dram shop laws, which can establish liquor-serving establishments liable for drunk driving accidents. Our law firm can help determine if a bar, restaurant, or hotel may be partially responsible for causing the car accident. If so, we can guide you in taking appropriate legal action.
