Drunk Driving Accidents

Michigan Personal Injury Attorneys

Representing Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

Despite tougher penalties, the unforgivable tragedy of drunk driving injury and death is repeated every day in Michigan. The attorneys of Ferris & Salter, P.C. are dedicated to holding drunk drivers accountable and securing compensation for their victims.

Based in Ann Arbor, our skilled and aggressive trial lawyers pursue all avenues to compensate clients for the medical bills, lost income, and personal loss suffered through no fault of their own. We represent drunk driving accident victims in the greater Detroit area and statewide throughout Michigan.

Strong Advocacy for Victims of Drunk Drivers

Ferris & Salter, P.C., investigates and researches these cases to maximize the recovery of damages. Once the other driver’s negligence is proved, the question of insurance coverage and compensation is our focus.

  • We pursue compensation from first party and third party liability insurance to cover medical bills and lost income. If the other driver has no insurance or insufficient coverage, we help victims file claims under their own Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist policy.
  • If a bar, liquor store or other establishment serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person, or to a person who is under age, and that person causes an injury accident, the victim can sue the establishment under Michigan dram shop laws.

Even if you were partly at fault for the accident (speeding, inattentive driving), you may be able to collect damages. The drunk driver will probably be found to have a greater portion of negligence.
