Colorado Serious and Fatal Accidents Attorney
When someone else's wrongdoing, negligence or irresponsibility leads to serious injury and damage, their actions do not occur in a vacuum - their actions affect countless victims. While the law cannot prevent people from making dangerous and irresponsible choices, like driving drunk, it can be used to hold them responsible for the damage and destruction they cause.
REPRESENTING DRUNK DRIVING ACCIDENT VICTIMS AND THEIR FAMILIES
If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of the actions of a drunk driver, our Denver drunk driving accidents lawyer will work to help you recover the compensation your family needs.
An intoxicated person in control of any motor vehicle - car, boat, truck - can cause serious and devastating harm to others. Too often, people make selfish, dangerous and even deadly decisions when they get behind the wheel having had too much to drink. Their decision to drink and drive can cause someone else to suffer a permanent injury, such as a spinal cord injury (paralysis) or traumatic brain injury. Even worse, their decision can lead to a fatal crash, leaving behind a family to cope with the wrongful death.
Undoubtedly, the drunk driver will likely face criminal consequences. However, drunk drivers can also be held financially accountable for the catastrophic injuries and fatalities they have caused. Working with the Litman Law Firm, PC, you can help ensure that the drunk driver is held responsible for the reckless actions that caused your undue suffering. We fight for your rights both in and out of the courtroom.
COLORADO DRAM SHOP LIABILITY - LIQUOR LIABILITY LAWS
When a drunk driving accident results in serious or fatal injuries, there may be additional parties that should be held responsible for the accident, in addition to the drunk driver.
Bar owners, restaurants, liquor stores and other businesses can be held financially responsible for their negligent service (or sale) of alcohol to minors or to individuals who are visibly intoxicated when the intoxicated individual subsequently causes a catastrophic or fatal drunk driving accident.

TALK TO A DENVER PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY
Before you settle with an insurance company following a drunk driver car crash, you should consider speaking with a personal injury attorney about your rights. If you sign a settlement for your case, and discover later that you settled for an amount that doesn't cover your damages, you will have lost your right to negotiate or litigate for a fair amount.
