Our skilled Chicago alcohol accident attorneys will carefully examine all of the facts of the accident, including determining where the drunk driver consumed alcohol in order to assess any possible dram shop liability.

Dram shop laws are incredibly complex laws and the skilled Illinois drunk driving liability lawyers at Ankin Law have the experience and knowledge necessary to help you pursue your claim.
Documenting Your Alcohol-Related Auto Accident Case
Auto accidents that are caused by alcohol typically entitle the victim to recover for his or her injuries in a personal injury lawsuit. Personal injury lawsuits require the plaintiff to prove that the other driver was negligent and, in order to do so, the plaintiff must provide sufficient evidence to prove such claim. Police reports can be incredibly helpful in pursuing personal injury claims based on alcohol-related accidents.
Our skilled Chicago alcohol-related accident attorneys will obtain and review all relevant police reports, in addition to conducting an independent investigation of the accident, so that we can provide the court with adequate evidence to prove your case.
