Drunk drivers need to be held accountable for the devastation that they can cause on the highways. All too often an intoxicated driver causes a collision that leads to serious injury or death to others. Unfortunately, the residents of Lorain, Elyria, Amherst, Oberlin, and Avon, Ohio are not immune from these tragedies.The lawyers at Miraldi & Barrett can help the victims of such irresponsible behavior. For over 60 years, we have been handling serious injury and death claims for people in Lorain, Erie, and Cuyahoga Counties that were the result of someone's drunken conduct that led to a terrible car crash.
When Ohio drunk drivers get on the road, they can cause horrible collisions. They may go left of center and hit another driver head on. They may be speeding and fail to stop for a stop sign or red light. Because the injuries are usually quite severe in these crashes, our job is to recover compensation not only for your medical bills and lost wages, but for the pain, disability, and emotional losses that stem from this situation. We will also seek extra damages called punitive damages that are above all other damages and are designed to punish the wrongdoer.
We will also explore to see if anyone else was responsible for allowing the drunk driver to be on the road. Should a friend not have allowed this person to drive his own vehicle? Did a social host continue to serve alcohol to the intoxicated guest? Did a bar serve the driver when he or she was already intoxicated? Did someone buy alcohol or give alcohol to an underaged person? These are the types of questions that our law firm answers in an effort to help the victim of these unfortunate situations.
You will need an attorney who is aggressive against the wrongdoer, but at the same time, compassionate towards you and your family, the victims of this outrageous behavior. We have helped others in your situation before and understand the great trust that families place in us during these difficult situations.
