Kansas City Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Hurt in a DUI Accident? Call (888) 743-1030 to Pursue Damages!

It is common knowledge that drinking alcohol before driving a car is prohibited under the law. When a driver chooses to break this law, they are intentionally putting the lives of themselves and others in immediate danger of serious injury and even death.

The Kansas City drunk driving accident attorneys at DiPasquale Moore are parents and spouses, and we know that your life is too valuable to be threatened by another driver’s negligence. When you have been harmed, you deserve compensation for your injuries, lost employment, emotional pain and suffering, property damage, and more.

If you or a loved one has been involved in an accident with a drunk driver, you deserve significant compensation! Get started with a free case consultation by calling (888) 743-1030.

Civil vs. Criminal DUI Lawsuits

While the criminal system is in place to hold drunk drivers accountable for their actions, it does little to help the victim recover. Thankfully, a personal injury lawsuit is completely separate from all criminal proceedings, allowing victims to pursue damages regardless of whether or not the drunk driver gets charged or convicted.

What is Dram Shop Liability & How Does It Affect My Case?

Dram shop liability can be very important in a DUI accident case, but it's not a very well known term. Missouri dram shop law allows a person who was injured by a drunk driver to pursue damages from the bar or restaurant that overserved them.

Dram shop liability applies in the following cases:

  • The bar/restaurant continued to serve someone who was "visibly intoxicated", showing signs like slurred speech or the inability to walk straight.
  • The bar/restaurant served alcohol to someone under the age of 21.

Dram shop liability doesn't apply in every DUI accident case, but when it does, it means another avenue of compensation for our clients. Our Kansas City drunk driving accident attorneys can let you know if dram shop law applies to your case and fight for every cent you deserve.

Common Injuries Resulting From Drunk Driving Accidents

Being in an accident with a driver that is not intoxicated can be traumatic enough. Being involved in an accident with an impaired driver is usually serious or fatal. Drunk drivers are unable to operate their vehicles the same way that sober drivers are able to, oftentimes resulting in high-impact collisions.

Being involved in a drunk driving accident can leave you with numerous injuries, such as:

If the accident resulted in a death, you may be compensated for funeral expenses and pain and suffering resulting from this loss. Our Kansas City drunk driving accident attorneys will explore all possible avenues to maximize the compensation you are eligible to receive.
