There are many types of car accident injuries that victims suffer. These injuries range in severity, and heavily influence the value of a car accident claim. More severe injuries can increase a victim’s losses, and have a long-term effect on his or her life. It’s important to be aware of the impact of car accident injuries and what kind of compensation those injuries qualify for when starting a claim. 
Car accident settlement amounts depend on factors such as the insurance coverage held by the motorists involved, liability, and the severity of the injuries and property damage. However, other factors may also play a role. For example, punitive damages may be calculated in a settlement if the other party was acting recklessly and in conscious disregard to others.

Drunk Driving Accidents: The Country Club Pays

Posted By:

Drunk Driving Accidents: The family of a man killed in a 2008 car accident was awarded $1 million in July in a lawsuit against an Alabama country club. The club was accused of selling too much alcohol to a man who is now serving prison time for causing a Drunk Driving Accidents in which a father of three was killed. The defendant- whose blood-alcohol level was nearly two times the legal limit three hours after the crash- hit the decedent head-on after leaving the premises of the club.

The family alleged that the club continued to serve the defendant alcohol despite witness accounts that he was intoxicated upon arrival at the club and then bought “at least 12 cans of beer” and then 6 more after 9 holes of golf. After finishing another 9 holes, defendant repaired to the bar where he was served more alcohol.

Grazian and Volpe hopes the spirit of community responsibility illustrated by this verdict extends to findings in Illinois. As we have opined in previous articles posted on our blog and our LinkedIn and Twitter sites- it is up to our judiciary to enforce drunk driving laws and our communities to help prevent drunk drivers from getting into their vehicles. This verdict is another step in holding errant servers of alcohol liable for enabling the endangerment of the innocent.
