Injuries From Drunk Drivers

Without the ability to listen to my client’s needs, I believe I would just be spinning my wheels. It is our goal at Stapleton Law Office to always put our clients’ issues in perspective and find the law that best serves their interests.

Injuries from Drunk Drivers in Rogersville

Experienced Representation For The Victims Of Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk drivers can cause devastation and tragedy for innocent individuals and their families in drunk driving accidents.

These accidents often result in serious injuries. In the worst cases, they can result in fatalities for their victims. In most cases, these victims did nothing wrong and were injured or killed through another’s irresponsibility or negligence.

A Trial Attorney Serving Drunk Driving Injury Victims

In addition to the criminal penalties served to drunk drivers, the Stapleton Law Office will also pursue civil penalties and compensation. We seek full compensation to help our clients pay their medical bills, afford their car and house payments, and be able to maintain their lifestyle, even if they have lost wages and can no longer work due to their injuries.

Drunk drivers can cause severe emotional, financial and physical distress. Our firm does not take these cases lightly. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle wreck with a drunk driver, contact an experienced lawyer for a free initial consultation. We will discuss your case and present you with your best options for recovery.

“The drunk driver in my case has already been arrested. Can I still pursue a case against him?”

In Tennessee, criminal penalties and civil penalties are separate; those who break the law can be subjected to both. In a case of drunk driving that resulted in serious injuries or a wrongful death, the state is likely to bring criminal charges against the driver.

If the driver is convicted, however, your medical bills and other expenses could not be paid, and you will still be left without adequate compensation for your losses. By bringing a civil lawsuit in addition to the criminal charges, you can get the compensation that you need while the drunk driver is tried in the criminal justice system.

Dram Shop Liability In Tennessee

At the Stapleton Law Office, we believe that these accidents aren’t just the responsibility of drunk drivers: They are also the responsibility of those individuals or establishments that served the driver too much alcohol and let them drive away.

This includes liquor stores, bars and taverns, and other commercial establishments that serve alcoholic beverages. Individuals who serve alcohol at parties or other functions may also be responsible.

In Tennessee, it is illegal to sell or give alcohol to a person who is already drunk. Those who violate this law and contribute to drunk driving accidents need to be held accountable for their actions. Our firm will aggressively pursue these cases and get victims the compensation that they deserve.
