Drunk Driver Accidents

Chicago Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers

In 2008, 11,773 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents involving drunk drivers. That is 32 percent of all traffic fatalities in the U.S. for the year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

There is no question that drinking and driving is a serious problem. The question for those injured by drunk drivers is: What can you do about it? The Chicago drunk driving accident attorneys of The Horwitz Law Group advise you to seek legal representation from an experienced trial attorney who will pursue every last dime of financial compensation from all responsible parties. The Horwitz Law Group is such a law firm. We will leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of justice and fair compensation.

Full Compensation for Clients, Safer Roads for All

The primary goal of our Chicago car accident lawyers is always to obtain full financial compensation for our clients. Our secondary goal is to encourage social change by attaching significant financial consequences to those who harm others when they drink and drive. We want people to know that drinking and driving is not only wrong, not only criminal — it can be financially ruinous.

In every case, we will determine whether someone other than the drunk driver shares liability for damages. If the drunk driver was over-served at a bar or restaurant, we may obtain credit card receipts for the transactions or seek testimony from other patrons who observed the person being over-served. If the establishment violated Illinois’ dram shop law by serving alcohol to someone who was obviously intoxicated, we will hold the bar or restaurant accountable for our client’s damages.

Drunk drivers, especially those who habitually drive drunk, may be uninsured or under-insured. In these cases, we may seek compensation from the uninsured or under-insured motorists provisions of your own auto insurance. We may also go a step further.

We Make It Personal

We believe in personal responsibility, particularly when the decision to drink and drive results in a life-altering injury or fatality. If the drunk driver does not have insurance, but does have personal assets, like a home, a car, a business or investments, we will not hesitate to take legal action to appropriate those assets and liquidate them to pay for our client’s damages.

Our passion for justice is matched by our knowledge of the law and our dedication to obtaining positive results for our clients. If you would like to put our strength and passion on your side, please contact The Horwitz Law Group by e-mail or call 312-641-9200. The initial consultation is free of charge and free of obligation.
