While being injured in an automobile accident is an undoubtedly traumatic event, being injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver can be absolutely devastating. Injuries caused by a drunk driver can be some of the most catastrophic injuries an individual can face. Oftentimes, the drunk driver walks away unharmed, while the other party or parties involved are seriously injured, disabled, or even killed. There's no excuse for a drunk driver whose negligent actions cause serious, permanent injuries or lead to the loss of life.
It is important to look at all potential responsible parties when analyzing an accident involving a drunk driver. In some circumstances, the party that supplied the alcohol to the intoxicated driver may also be held liable.
