Chandler Drunk Driver Accident Lawyers

Despite decades of campaigns to curb drunk driving, many people continue to drive while under the influence of Alcohol and/or drugs. Drunk driving remains one of the leading causes of injuries and fatalities, not only in Arizona, but throughout the United States. In 2020 there were 4,506 alcohol related crashes in Arizona with 970 resulting in fatalities according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

It’s disturbing that even after decades of campaigns and public service messages that many drivers still believe drinking alcohol does not affect their ability to safely operate a motor vehicle. Even more disturbing is that many of the victims in drunk driving accidents in Chandler, Arizona are young children. The fact is driving while intoxicated is not only dangerous, but very foolish as well. When someone chooses to drive their vehicle after drinking alcohol or taking drugs, they are not only putting their life at risk, but also the lives of others on the road. The consequences of drunk driver accidents can be devastating and life-long for the victims in these accidents.

With all the many options available today such as Uber, and other rideshares, taxis, and designated drivers, it’s unconscionable that so many people would still choose to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle after drinking alcohol or ingesting mind-altering drugs. We simply need to do a better job of teaching people the dangers and consequences of driving while impaired.

The State of Arizona takes drunk driving very seriously. Indeed, Arizona has some of the toughest DUI laws in the country. In addition to severe criminal penalties, drunk drivers may also face civil liabilities for injuries they cause, including injuries to people and property damage.

Arizona also has Dram Shop Laws. These laws can hold the party serving alcohol accountable as well. Under the Arizona Revised Statute 4-311(D), a bar or restaurant can be held liable for serving alcohol to minors or individuals who are already intoxicated if they meet the following conditions:

  • The individual who purchased alcohol also consumed it
  • The restaurant or bar sold liquor to a person who was visibly intoxicated
  • The individual’s consumption of alcohol can be tied to the injury

Damages for injuries in a drunk driving accident or dram shop claim may include compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage

If you or someone you love is a victim of a drunk driver in Chandler, AZ, it is crucial that you consult with a drunk driver accident attorney to determine the compensation you may be entitled to.

I am a client of the Attorney's For Freedom Law Firm's "Attorney On Retainer" program (as well as... their "Self-Protection plan"). I had an unfortunate explosion involving a firearm ("accidental discharge") that was a possible felony charge in Arizona. One call to Jonathan and it was all taken care of with no further action required on my part. They truly "just a phone call away"...read more

I want to thank Rachel Moss for her excellent work on my case. It was a traffic case that the DA... would not dismiss, Rachel got the charge dismissed without a trial and killed the DA with the facts and case law.
