Plaintiff's Counsel: Jordan D. Lebovitz
$950k Settlement After Fatal Drunk Driving Accident
Plaintiffs, husband, and wife were driving to Walmart when a drunk driver rear-ended their vehicle into a telephone pole. Based on surveillance footage, the drunk driver had been drinking at a nearby bar for roughly five (5) hours prior to the crash and consumed over ten (10) drinks (whiskey and beer). He had a BAC of approximately .309 at the time of the crash. Husband suffered an open right ankle fracture requiring surgery, and his wife died within one (1) hour of the crash.
As part of the settlement, the bar owners and bartenders were required to complete a training program conducted by the Ohio Department of Public Safety on safe alcohol serving practices.
