Have You Been Injured or Suffered the Loss of a Loved One Due to an Intoxicated Driver?

We Protect Drunk Driving Accident Victims’ Rights!
Drunk driver accident injury victims and their families must have an experienced DUI/DWI accident lawyer to protect their rights. Insurance companies are in business to make money, not pay claims. The insurance company will defend the drunk driver and will make every attempt to reduce the compensation you may be entitled to receive.
Brian Hargrove has over 20 years of experience protecting drunk driving accident victims’ rights. At Brian Hargrove Law, we take drunk driving cases personally. Many lawyers advertise they negotiate a “fair settlement” with the drunk driver’s insurance company. When it comes to drunk driving crashes, Brian Hargrove doesn’t negotiate. We demand full policy limits!
Can a Bar or Restaurant Be Held Responsible for a Drunk Driving Accident?
If you’ve been injured in a drunk driver crash, there are often multiple parties legally responsible. Texas “dram shop” laws allow drunk driving victims to sue due to the improper service of alcohol. Brian Hargrove aggressively pursues ALL parties who violate the law and put us all at risk of serious injury and death.
In addition to the drunk driver, other responsible parties may include:
- Insurance companies
- Bars and restaurant owners and/or staff
- The car’s owner, if not the drunk driver
What Is Texas’ “Dram Shop” Law?
When someone is injured or killed in a drunk driving crash, the victim or their family may sue the alcohol provider in addition to the driver, in some cases. For example, if a bartender continued to serve a drunk patron despite being fully aware of their level of intoxication and then didn’t try to stop them from driving home, they may be found partially at fault for the accident. What this means is that in such cases, the bartender also owes you compensation since they were a contributing factor to your injuries.
Unfortunately, many lawyers at heavily advertised firms just want a quick settlement. These “settlement mills” may simply decide not to properly investigate and pursue all potentially responsible parties. If you want to receive the FULL value of your claim, you will need an experienced drunk driving accident lawyer on your side with a history of pursuing all avenues for justice. Brian Hargrove takes a personal interest in the investigation and pursuing ALL responsible parties.
