Holding Drunk Drivers Accountable
Alcohol is involved in more than 170 fatal car accidents in Massachusetts each year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Thousands of drivers and passengers are injured or killed because of drunk driving negligence. If this has happened to you or a loved one, call the experienced lawyers at The Law Offices of Joseph J. Cariglia, P.C., in Worcester.
The Massachusetts Dramshop Law Holds People Accountable
Bars or restaurants that continue to serve alcohol to a patron who is obviously intoxicated share responsibility for the damages and injuries if that driver causes an accident. Hosts of private parties where alcohol is served are responsible for similar damages and injuries.
Even if the driver who injured you is not convicted of a DUI (driving under the influence) or DWI (driving while intoxicated), you may still be able to obtain financial compensation in civil court for your medical bills, pain and suffering, property damage, and lost wages or income caused by drunk driving.
We’ll Stand By You
Drunk driving is obvious negligence, especially when the driver is underage. Those who get behind the wheel when they have had too much to drink put everyone else on the road at risk.

Cariglia, P.C., provide knowledgeable, experienced representation for drunk driving accident victims.
