Chicago Drunk Driving Injury Lawyer
Attorney David Nemeroff understands the heartache and suffering experienced by drunk driving victims. He became an attorney after suffering his own serious injuries when he was hit head-on by a drunk driver. David's own experience puts him in a unique position of truly understanding his client's experiences when seriously injured. The experienced Chicago personal injury attorneys at Nemeroff Law Offices have handled many cases involving drunk driving crashes.
He is passionate about assisting drunk driving victims recover adequately for their injuries or loss. David has been extensively involved in fighting drinking and driving, speaking for MADD, teaching their victim advocates and serving on the Board of Directors for the Alliance Against Intoxicated Motorists (AAIM) for more than 3 years. He is actively involved in the community and has spoken at schools regarding the consequences of drinking and driving.
He believes that deaths and injuries caused by drunk & drugged driving are not accidents, but are the result of willful conduct. The label of “accident” obscures the causative factor of alcohol/drug abuse, and fails to recognize driving under the influence as a crime.
David also has extensive experience with the Illinois Dram Shop Act and lawsuits filed under it. Frequently, when a crash occurs with a drunk driver, a claim against the bar/restaurant/catering hall that served the alcohol to the drunk driver is made along with a claim against the drunk driver. By doing this, it provides more insurance coverage to recover for the injuries or death. The statute of limitations for a Dram Shop case in Illinois is only one year, so prompt investigation to determine the place(s) where the drunk driver became intoxicated is vital. The Dram Shop Act is complex and requires an attorney with extensive knowledge about it.
David has extensive trial experience, having tried over 55 jury trials involving personal injury or wrongful death. He has dedicated his career to representing persons or families who were harmed by drunk drivers. For more information on how we can help you, please contact us at the numbers listed below.
