Oakbrook Terrace IL Drunk Driving Accidents Lawyer
DuPage County DUI Crash Attorney
When people choose to drink and drive, they put everyone on the road at risk. Research has shown that drinking impairs reaction time, depth perception and other faculties critical to operating a vehicle. When these negligent drivers are involved in crashes that cause serious injury, not only do they have to answer to law enforcement for the DUI, they also have to answer to you.
If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident that you did not cause, you may be entitled to collect damages for the harm that has come to you. It is important that you have strong representation from an experienced attorney who knows the law. At The Law Offices of Charles T. Jacques, based in Oakbrook Terrace, we help clients throughout Chicagoland who have been injured in alcohol-related accidents.

Holding All Responsible Parties Accountable
In every case we take, we fully investigate every aspect to determine what happened and who was to blame. In many cases, there are multiple parties who share the responsibility for the accident and the resulting injuries. Under Illinois dram shop law, bars, restaurants and liquor stores can be partially liable for serving a person who was obviously drunk. In addition, a party host who serves liquor to a minor can be held responsible in the event the minor causes an accident.
We have a complete understanding of the law in these cases and we are committed to obtaining the best possible result in your case. Attorney Charles T. Jacques is a former prosecutor and insurance defense lawyer. He knows drunk driving accident cases from all sides and is prepared to pursue every legal option available in order to get the compensation you deserve.
