IS DRUNK DRIVING IS STILL A THING?
JUSTICE FOR VICTIMS OF DRUNK DRIVERS.

Regrettably, hundreds of innocent people are killed or injured each year as result of negligence by impaired drivers on the road. Due to the avoidable nature of such tragedies, the frustration and anger of such events is indescribable.

If you or someone you care about has been injured in a car accident as a result of the negligence of a drunk driver, you need to speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer today to ensure that a timely investigation is conducted and your rights are protected.

Benjamin Law covers all angles and will search for all the evidence including records of the drunk driver’s blood alcohol level, the source of alcohol and whether the individual was over-served at a nightclub, bar or restaurant. If so, this entity will also be liable for damages as discussed under Bar and Tavern Liability. We will work with professional experts such as toxicologists and other professional expert witnesses when necessary, such as accident reconstruction engineers and healthcare professionals to determine liability and build the strongest claim possible.
