In T-bone accidents, the driver who acted negligently on the road by not following traffic signs or committing traffic violations is usually at fault. However, while it may appear that the driver who collided with the other vehicle is responsible for the accident, this is not always the case.
In a multi-car accident, determining fault requires a careful examination of all available facts. Each car accident is unique, and blame for the incident falls on the person or parties responsible. The person responsible for an accident, or his or her insurance company, will bear the major financial responsibility. To determine who is to blame, it is essential to gather sufficient evidence to prove what happened.

Drunk Driving Accidents The Country Club Pays

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.
