Minneapolis Drunk Driving Victim Lawyer

Drunk Driving Victim

Injured in a Drunk Driving Accident?

At Lord + Heinlein, we have a unique personal understanding of the impact a drunk driving-related accident can have on an injured person or the family of someone killed by a drunk driver. In 1989 our Managing Partner, Priscilla Lord, lost her 19 year-old son in a drunk driving crash. We understand the anguish of being injured or losing a loved one due to another’s selfish decision to get behind the wheel after drinking.

First Steps to Take if You Are Injured by a Drunk Driver

  1. Call the police, and make sure you gather the at-fault driver's information, including name, contact information, and insurance policy information
  2. Seek emergency medical attention
  3. Photograph your injuries both immediately and throughout the healing process
  4. Contact an experienced auto accident attorney
  5. Keep a journal to record your pain as you heal, so you can recall this later

You have the same rights as any victim of a car crash, plus the potential rights to collect from a bar involved in illegal sales of alcohol via a Dram Shop suit.
