Each year residents and visitors are severely injured or killed in car accidents involving alcohol. Law enforcement increases efforts to deter drunk driving by criminally punishing those who place others in danger through their reckless behavior. If you were hurt or some one you love killed in a car wreck, Clore Law Group stands ready to seek the maximum damages afforded you under the law.
