We Stand By Victims Of Middle Tennessee Drunk Driving Accidents
Nobody should ever have to pay the price for someone else’s bad decision to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. Unfortunately, drunk driving accidents happen across Tennessee on a daily basis, resulting in hundreds of fatalities each year.
At Miller Injury Firm, we help victims of drunk driving accidents seek justice. Our personal injury lawyers draw on more than 35 years of experience to secure compensation and accountability for innocent people who have paid the unfortunate price for someone else’s negligence.
Who Can Be Held Liable In A Drunk Driving Accident In Tennessee?
In a drunk driving accident case, you can pursue compensation from not only the drunk driver and their insurance, but also from the establishment that served the driver.
Understanding Dram Shop Liability
Dram shop liability refers to holding establishments such as bars, restaurants and clubs accountable when they overserve patrons who then go on to cause accidents. To prove a dram shop claim, you will need to prove that the establishment continued to serve alcohol to the driver when they were visibly drunk.
How Are Drunk Driving Accidents Different From Regular Car Crashes?
Dram shop liability makes drunk driving accidents much different from other types of car accident cases, and it’s why you need an attorney who understands drunk driving cases.
Additionally, in a drunk driving accident case, you can pursue punitive damages – that is, additional compensation – to punish the wrongdoer.
Do Insurance Companies Typically Cover Drunk Driving Accidents?
Yes. Tennessee law requires drivers to carry minimum coverage for auto insurance, and you can seek compensation from their insurance for your injuries and property damage.

Drunk driving is a tragic and preventable cause of many deaths. If you lost a loved one to a drunk driving accident, let us help you pursue a wrongful death claim to help ease your financial burdens and pursue justice.
