Injuries Result of Drunk Driver


Settlement for 34 year-old man who was rear-ended by a drunk driver in his company issued van on St. Patrick’s Day. The injured plaintiff had a back surgery and a knee surgery as a result of the accident and returned to his regular job duties. The defendant regularly drank at the bar across the street from his job site, including on the date of accident, allowing us to plead punitive damages against his employer since they knew or should have known of his prior DUI history and drinking before the accident. This case settled just before the start of trial.
