Of all the obligations drivers agree to when they take their vehicles on the road, perhaps the most fundamental is the need to maintain sobriety at all times. GoldenbergLaw’s Minnesota car accident lawyers know the statistics: more than 10,000 Americans were killed by drunk drivers in 2012. In 2013, 387 Minnesotans were killed in DUI-related crashes.
But the statistics don’t tell the whole story. We’ve seen innocent people lose their livelihoods as a result of these injuries. We’ve seen families left without their loved ones. We’ve seen the lives ruined by drunk driving.
That’s why we’re so committed to pursuing justice and compensation for victims of drunk driving.
If you’re a Minnesota resident and you or a loved one was hurt by a drunk driver, you should speak to our car accident lawyers immediately. Please call GoldenbergLaw today at 612-436-5026.
How Our Car Accident Lawyers Can Help
We understand that when someone makes the decision to get behind the wheel while under the influence, they put themselves and everyone on the road at risk. The long-term damages of the resulting accident, both financial and physical, are immense.
Currently, the blood-alcohol concentration threshold for drunk driving in Minnesota is .08, though many are pushing to reduce the threshold to .05. However, a driver’s BAC does not have to reach .08 for true impairment to take hold. Our car accident lawyers have seen how dangerous the practice of so-called “buzzed driving” can be.
GoldenbergLaw will be happy to discuss your case with you if you’ve been the victim of a car accident caused by a drunk driver. We can help by:
- Evaluating your claim at a free initial consultation
- Investigating your accident to determine its cause
- Discovering whether or not the person who hit you was driving under the influence
- Pursuing compensation for the massive expenses that result from these accidents
In some cases, we might be able to pursue a claim under the Minnesota Dram Shop Act. This allows personal injury claims against bars, liquor stores and other establishments if it can be shown that the establishment illegally sold alcohol to a patron and that the illegal sale contributed to your injuries.
But the most important thing is to arrange your free consultation. We cannot help if you do not take the first step. You have the right to representation in the aftermath of your accident.
If you live anywhere in Minnesota and you want to speak to our car accident lawyer about your accident, please contact GoldenbergLaw today for a free consultation.
