Drunk Driving Accidents Should Never Happen

Every 51 minutes, someone in the country dies in a drunk driving accident.* At the Cleveland law firm of Rumizen Weisman, we believe that this statistic is simply unacceptable. Our mission is to help the victims and their families recover full and fair compensation for their needless suffering.

Holding Drivers Responsible With Punitive Damages

While you can always seek compensation for your injuries through a personal injury lawsuit, drunk driving cases provide the potential to recover even more money than normal. The court has the ability to award "punitive damages," which is extra money intended to hit the wrongdoer where it hurts: in the wallet.

Our experienced lawyers will carefully review your case and see if you may be eligible for this additional money. If so, we will vigorously pursue the maximum amount. It will benefit you and your family while helping to teach the drunk driver a lesson.

Holding Bars And Liquor Stores Accountable

While the drunk driver is certainly to blame for his or her part in the accident, other entities may also be held liable. In some cases, it is possible to bring a lawsuit against the bar, restaurant or liquor store that served the alcohol in the first place. These "dram shop" or "liquor liability" cases are often challenging, but they can provide additional compensation to the victims.

Rumizen Weisman is known for handling one of the largest dram shop cases in Ohio. We represented the families of Andrew Hopkins and Grace Chamberlain — two Hiram College students killed in a DWI/DUI accident in 2006. As part of this case, we sued the local bar that served alcohol to the drunk driver (who already had 11 DUI convictions on his record).
