Representing Victims of Impaired Drivers
Choosing to drive after drinking to excess is negligent behaviour that puts others at risk of injury or death.
The Toronto drunk driver accident lawyers at McLeish Orlando LLP represent people who were harmed by drunk drivers. We help our clients obtain full accident benefits and pursue financial compensation for their losses through personal injury (tort) claims.
When a drunk driver causes an accident that results in the injury or death of others, it is a straightforward task to establish that the driver was negligent. Finding adequate resources to compensate the victims can pose a greater challenge. Those who drive drunk often fail to carry adequate insurance.
We will pursue all possible sources of financial compensation. If the drunk driver was served alcohol at a bar or restaurant prior to the accident, we will investigate whether the establishment may be held legally responsible for damages. Obtaining credit card receipts and cell phone records often allows us to establish where the person was and how much he or she drank. We work with experienced toxicologists who can help establish whether or not the bar or restaurant was at fault.
If a bar or restaurant was not involved and the driver lacked adequate insurance, we may turn to the uninsured and underinsured motorist provisions of your own insurance policy.

If an impaired driver's actions resulted in the wrongful death of a member of your family, we will do everything we can to secure full financial compensation. While no amount of money can truly compensate you for your loss, a significant judgment or settlement can send a message to others and encourage more responsible behaviour.
