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 hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
