Case Result: $1.3 Million for Couple Injured by Drunk Driver
Attorney Steven Goldberg recently settled a $1.3 million-dollar personal injury case for a couple who suffered injuries in a car crash caused by a drunk driver. The driver had been over-served at a restaurant by his girlfriend, who was bartending. The firm was able to identify that the driver’s girlfriend continued to serve him drinks regardless of his level of intoxication.
Attorney Goldberg successfully invoked the dram shop liability law after discovering video evidence of the driver swerving and driving on the wrong side of the road. The dram shop liability law refers to legal action brought against a business that serves alcohol to a person who is already intoxicated, causing injury or damage due to their state of intoxication.
The accident occurred only 10 minutes after the intoxicated driver left the restaurant, proving that a severe level of intoxication was reached while he was being served alcohol at the restaurant. The injured couple suffered a broken arm, torn shoulder, rib fractures, and a lacerated liver from the wreck.
