Senseless. Tragic. Horrific. An outrage. And just plain wrong. Drunk driving accidents are all of these things and more. Unfortunately, we continue to hear and read too many stories where these words are connected to the actions of a drunk driver.
At The Law Offices of James Flexer, we know that far too many drunk driving accidents could have been prevented if the establishments serving alcohol to the drunk driver had done so responsibly. If you or members of your family were damaged by the actions of a drunk driver, our attorneys will work directly with you to pursue fair compensation from all those responsible, including bars, restaurants or other third parties that may have been negligent in serving alcohol to the driver who hurt you.
Contact us today to set up a free consultation with an experienced Nashville drunk driving accident attorney. We have offices in Nashville, Murfreesboro and Columbia. You will pay us no fees unless our efforts are successful.
Drunk Driving Accidents: What Does the Law in Tennessee Say?
Tennessee’s liquor liability laws make it illegal for a social host to serve alcohol to anyone who is underage or obviously intoxicated. Social hosts in drunk driving car and truck accident cases are most often bars and restaurants, but hotels, employers and even individual homeowners have been held legally liable for these accidents as well.
Investing Whatever It Takes to Build Your Case
Pursuing a liquor liability claim (also known as a dram shop case) against a bar, restaurant or other third party can be expensive. In fact, it usually requires a great deal of time and money to identify and track down potential witnesses, take depositions, hire the right experts, file the lawsuit and more.
We understand that and generally advance all litigation costs so that you have an opportunity to fully pursue your claims on a level playing field with the defense. While there are limits (particularly with retention of experts) on what we will advance, we will always discuss with you the need for and cost of an expert or any other major expense. We aggressively prepare each case to maximize the recovery for you while keeping a close eye on expenses.
