Deaths involving drunk driving account for about 30 percent of Illinois’ total fatal auto accidents. Males are more likely than females to drive drunk and 23.4 percent are between the ages of 21 and 25. On average, someone is killed by a drunk driver every 53 minutes. Laws are in place to prevent drunk drivers from injuring others… but these laws are often ignored.
It is important that drivers are held accountable for their actions. Many drunk drivers are also repeat offenders. Even if the driver has insurance, it may not be enough to cover all the expenses that can be incurred. There may also be other people that can be held liable such as bars, clubs, or the host of a party. It is important to consult an experienced attorney to aid in your case.
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.
