We Will Hold All Responsible Parties Accountable
There is little doubt that a drunk person who chooses to drive has acted negligently. However, the state of Maine also has a law regarding dram shop liability. If a drunk driver harms another person, the Maine Liquor Liability Act holds the establishment that served the patron too much alcohol responsible for its negligent actions. Our Cumberland County and York County car accident lawyers will thoroughly investigate your claim. If we find that a bar or a restaurant contributed to a person's intoxication level, we will hold it accountable in an effort to maximize your compensation award.

Representing Family Members in Tragic Accident Cases
Accidents involving drunk drivers typically result in greater damage than is caused in a normal motor vehicle accident, and they often involve fatalities. If you have lost a loved one due to a drunk driver, our lawyers can file a wrongful death claim. We understand that no amount of compensation can fill the void left by the absence of a loved one. However, together we can help send a message that this type of reckless behavior will not be tolerated.
