Injured By A Drunk Driver? We Can Help.
Even though Arizona criminal law punishes drunk drivers for the harm they cause, you will often need to work with your own lawyer should you wish to recover the compensation you need to move forward with your life after being injured in a drunk driving accident. Fortunately, the skilled attorneys at Harris Powers & Cunningham are available to help you.

Arizona Dram Shop Liability: The Basics
Under Arizona law, bars, restaurants and their employees are responsible for the damage caused when they serve alcohol to someone underage or someone who was already intoxicated, and this individual leaves the bar and injures an innocent party in a car accident.
Arizona law also holds social hosts — like parents who allow teens to drink in their home — responsible for the damage caused when they serve alcohol to minors. The law allows courts to require these businesses and people to pay damages to any person who was injured, or to the survivors of a person killed.
Sometimes, car accident victims do not initially know that their lawsuit can be against a bar as well as the driver. At Harris Powers & Cunningham, we investigate all parts of the case, helping you understand the full range of your options in personal injury and wrongful death claims.
