Injury Lawyers Representing Victims of DUI Accidents in Winnebago County

In Illinois, more than 30,000 motorists are arrested for DUI each year. Drunk drivers are also responsible for thousands of car accident injuries and hundreds of fatalities every year on the state's roadways. If you or a loved one has suffered injury or wrongful death in a DUI-related accident, you may have the right to compensation. To ensure those responsible for your injuries are held fully accountable, it is important to speak with an experienced drunk driver liability lawyer.

At Mannarino & Brasfield, A Division of Schwartz Injury Law, we have over 20 years of experience representing victims of drunk driving accidents in Rockford, Chicago, and communities throughout Illinois. We are committed to pursuing justice for those who have been injured by the reckless actions of a driver who was intoxicated. We have a strong track record of success with even the most complex drunk driver liability cases, and we aggressively pursue all responsible parties to ensure that our clients are fully compensated.

Drunk Driver Liability Claims in Illinois

If you are injured in an accident that is the fault of a drunk driver, there are several steps you should take right away:

  • Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries.
  • File a police report.
  • Take multiple photos of the accident scene.
  • Collect the contact information of witnesses.
  • Speak to our personal injury attorney to discuss your rights and legal options.

There are several categories of damages you may be able to pursue against those responsible for drunk driving accidents, including:

  • Property Damage: Damage to your vehicle and any other personal property.
  • Medical Costs: Expenses you have already incurred, as well as ongoing medical costs.
  • Lost Wages: Many DUI injuries leave victims with temporary or permanent (full or partial) disabilities. This could mean the inability to perform the same type of work you did before the accident, which could lead to serious financial hardship.
  • Lower Quality of Life: Physical disability, pain and suffering, mental anguish, emotional distress, and related losses lead to a poorer quality of life for accident victims and their families.
  • Wrongful Death: In the most severe cases, drunk driver accidents needlessly claim the lives of those closest to us.

In a drunk driver liability claim, the first course of action is to pursue the driver who is responsible for this egregious act. If an Illinois liquor establishment served the driver too much alcohol which contributed to the crash, that establishment may also share responsibility for the incident. We are well-versed on Illinois dram shop liability laws, and we know what it takes to prevail in cases involving bars, restaurants, and other establishments that to choose to serve excessive amounts of alcohol to their patrons.
