Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Are you a victim of a drunk driving accident?
Drunk driving accidents claim the lives of thousands of people in North Carolina every year. According to the most recent data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 1,675 deaths attributed to drunk driving accidents in North Carolina. This statistic proves that drunk driving continues to be a problem in North Carolina, despite both nationwide and statewide efforts to inform people about the dangers of drunk driving.

If you or a loved one was seriously injured in any type of car accident, motorcycle accident or truck accident caused by a drunk driver, you can trust an experienced North Carolina car accident lawyer to help you take legal action against the responsible party. Not only do you have the right to file a lawsuit against the driver, but you may also have grounds to file a lawsuit against the bar, restaurant, or liquor store who provided alcohol to the driver. North Carolina’s Dram Shop laws state that a bar, liquor store, restaurant, grocery store, gas station, or any other establishment can be sued for damages if an employee:

  • Served alcohol to a person who was obviously intoxicated, and then that person caused an accident that resulted in injury or death, or
    Sold alcohol to a minor (a person under the age of 21) who injured another person in an accident
  • It is not necessary to prove the driver had a BAC level of .08 or more at the time of the accident. We just need to prove that alcohol impaired the driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle, and that it eventually led to the accident. Once this has been proven, your attorney will seek punitive damages if possible. Under North Carolina law, victims of accidents involving drunk drivers are entitled to extra damages (punitive damages) that go beyond the usual compensation for injuries.

ATV Rollover Accident Lawyer

Injured in an ATV rollover accident? We can help.
When an ATV rolls over, it can result in devastating injuries to the driver and passengers on the vehicle. Because many people are crushed as the ATV rolls over, it is not uncommon for victims to suffer from broken or fractured bones, back or spinal cord injuries, brain damage, paralysis, permanent disability, or even death. It is important to talk to a North Carolina ATV accident attorney if you or a loved one was injured in this type of accident.

Yamaha ATV Rhino Rollover Claims
Many lawsuits have been filed against Yamaha Corporation claiming that inherent defects in the design of the company’s Rhino ATV make it highly prone to rollovers, even when safety precautions are taken at all times. Since then, Yamaha Corporation has recalled about 145,000 Yamaha Rhinos (models 450, 660, and 700) from the market place.

If you were injured while riding on a Yamaha Rhino ATV, you should speak with an attorney about your options in regards to suing Yamaha Corporation for damages. With the help of a lawyer, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, mental anguish, medical expenses, loss of wages and benefits, and permanent disability.
