As drivers, we all hold a duty of care to operate our vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and follow the rules and regulations set by the New Hampshire government. Unfortunately, not all drivers uphold this duty and may act recklessly and endanger themselves and others on the road. One of the worst examples of driver negligence is when a driver chooses to get behind the wheel while drunk. Not only is drunk driving illegal, it is also highly dangerous and often leads to catastrophic accidents.

How to Prove Liability in a New Hampshire Drunk Driving Accident Case

In drunk driving accident cases, determining the responsible party is crucial for building a strong claim to seek compensation for your losses. There are a few different parties who may be held accountable for the accident. In New Hampshire, the parties who may be held liable for a drunk driving accident may include:

  • The intoxicated driver
  • The establishment, like a bar or restaurant, that overserved the driver

Our team of trusted New Hampshire drunk driving accident lawyers will launch a full investigation into the details of what occurred and identify who should be held liable for your injuries resulting from the drunk driving accident. Once the liable party has been identified, the next step your lawyer will take is to actually prove their liability. 

Proving liability in any personal injury case is a crucial step in supporting and strengthening the claim. To prove liability, one of our lawyers will collect evidence of the four factors of negligence:

  • The liable party owed the victim a duty of care
  • The liable party breached that duty of care
  • This breach of duty is what led to the drunk driving accident and the victim’s injuries
  • The victim suffered losses as a result

When you work with Sweeney Merrigan Personal Injury Lawyers, you will work with trusted lawyers like Peter M. Merrigan.
