Injured by Drunk Driver? Let Us Help You.
We are Boise dram shop liability attorneys with full knowledge of Idaho’s dram shop liability laws. Under Idaho’s dram shop laws, a bar, liquor store, restaurant or other establishment that sells alcohol cannot serve alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person. Therefore, if a person was already drunk, ordered a beer at a bar and was served and then injured someone in an accident, the bar can also be held liable for damages.
Don’t delay, Idaho law has a very strict 180 day rule that requires you put the server on notice within six months of the injury claim.
If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you have several options in addition to dram shop liability for securing fair compensation. The state can prosecute the drunk driver. While this may not result in any compensation to you ― not in a direct manner ― it is justice at work. There is also a potential for restitution. Additionally, our law firm looks to recover compensation from the drunk driver’s insurance as well as punitive damages paid by the drunk driver. If the drunk driver did not have insurance or did not have enough insurance, we can also seek compensation through an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim.
