Bloomingdale Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Lawyers for Drunk Driving Accidents in Lombard, Joliet, and St. Charles

According to the Illinois Secretary of State, drunk driving accidents account for roughly 40 % of the motor vehicle accident fatalities in Illinois. Even when there are no fatalities, accidents involving drunk drivers often lead to serious injuries that can permanently deprive someone of their health and livelihood. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of the carelessness or recklessness of a drunk driver, it is important for the responsible party to be held accountable so you receive full compensation for your injuries and they do not continue to pose a danger to others on the road.

At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we have been representing victims of accidents involving drunk drivers in Illinois for over 35 years. Our attorneys have been widely recognized not only for our skill and experience, but for our honesty, accessibility, down to earth approach and aggressive advocacy on behalf of our clients. Our clients are our number one priority, and we work hard to deliver the strong representation and personalized service they deserve. We respond quickly to all client inquiries and provide regular updates so you are always kept informed on the progress of your case.

Illinois Drunk Driving Laws

When an adult is driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of .08 or higher, he or she is considered legally intoxicated. If this person is involved in an accident while driving drunk, they can be found negligent by default, regardless of the circumstances of the incident. Even if a driver has a BAC of below .08, they may still be found negligent if it can be shown that their BAC level impaired their ability to drive in a safe manner.

Illinois has a zero tolerance policy for drivers under age 21 with any trace of alcohol in their system. This means if a driver under age 21 is involved in an accident, he/she can be found negligent by default if any alcohol was consumed before getting behind the wheel. If a parent or guardian knowingly permits an underage person in their care to operate a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol, he/she may also be held responsible if an accident occurs.

Under the Illinois Liquor Control Act (also known as the Dram Shop Act), persons injured in accidents involving drunk drivers may also bring claims against the licensed commercial establishment (such as a bar or restaurant) that provided alcohol to the driver. If it can be shown that the establishment sold or provided alcohol that contributed to the intoxication of the defendant and this intoxication was the proximate cause of the accident/injuries, the establishment could be held responsible as well.

At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we understand the pain and trauma an accident involving a drunk driver can have on you and your family, and we believe the legal process to recover damages should be as stress-free as possible. Our consultations are free and we take all our personal injury cases on a contingency basis, so you only pay if we win your case. We also offer extended evening and weekend hours to accommodate your schedule, and if your injury keeps you from traveling to one of our offices, we will meet you at your home, hospital or wherever is most convenient. We also have five convenient locations to serve you. For a free personalized consultation with one of our Illinois drunk driving accident attorneys, contact us today at 630-932-9100630-932-9100.
