Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of auto accidents in the United States. Injuries and death caused by drunk drivers are preventable. However, many negligent or careless individuals continue to drink and drive. If you are the victim of a drunk driver and you need a Denver drunk driving accident law firm on your side, Marra & Leavitt aggressively litigates drunk driving accidents to protect your rights.
In Colorado, drunk driving victims are not limited to pursuing claims arising from the negligence of drunk drivers, but also have a right to sue for punitive damages designed to punish the drunk driver for willful and reckless behavior. In some situations, people or businesses who served alcoholic beverages to a drunk driver may also be legally responsible for the damages caused by the drunk driver. In Colorado attorneys may also be permitted to file suit against those parties responsible for contributing to drunk driving accidents.
