Attorney Brian White settles a drunk driving car wreck and Dram Shop Act case. Our client was hit head on by a drunk diver. Her first lawyer told her to settle the case with the drunk driver for the limits of his car insurance, $100,000, and not to bother investigating where the drunk driver had been that night. She decided she needed a more aggressive lawyer and hired us. We investigated the case and found that the drunk driver had been at a bar earlier that evening where he was sold 31 drinks over a span of 3.5 hours. We pursued the bar in a Dram Shop Act case. We beat their motion for summary judgment. In a confidential settlement, they paid a significant sum of money far in excess of the drunk driver’s insurance policy limits.
