We seek to hold the negligent driver responsible for the damage and undue strain he/she put on your family.

We know how their lawyers and insurance operate. It is standard practice for them to lay some blame on you and then try to settle without consideration for your quality of life. Shay & Associates Law Firm has over 25 years’ experience prosecuting DUI cases and protecting the interests of drunk driving accident victims. We keep current understanding of the latest DUI laws to make sure we can build an undeniable case to defend you.

DUI Criminal And Civil Repercussions

A drunk driver in the state of Illinois faces criminal charges as well as civil charges. They face probation, jail time and their commercial and non-commercial licenses suspended or revoked. They may also be liable for financial damages because of their choices. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, future income and funeral expenses.
Because the window is so narrow in which one can file a suit, contact your drunk driving accident attorneys at Shay & Associates Law Firm as soon as possible. We have the investigative team that doesn’t rely on the evidence gathered by responding officers. Gathering evidence, like crash reconstruction and medical testimony needs to happen immediately. Coordinating injuries with wreckage is paramount.
