An Alcohol-Related Crash Is No Accident

Attorney Mark Maritote has represented victims of motor vehicle accidents since 1981. He oversees a thorough investigation, sometimes with the assistance of accident reconstructionists, to establish the negligence that caused the crash.

Drunk driving accidents often cause severe injuries or fatality, especially when the intoxicated driver runs a red light, rear-ends another vehicle at high speed or careens into the oncoming lane to cause a head-on crash. This results in massive medical bills, ongoing care needs, loss of earnings and other substantial damages. Your family deserves fair and full compensation for an accident that was not your fault and never should have happened.

Maximizing Compensation For A Tragedy

Many times, the drunk driver's insurance policy does not fully cover the substantial damages. Mr. Maritote explores all angles of recovery:

  • Liability of a bar or restaurant that overserved the person
  • Liability of an employer that furnished alcohol at an after-hours event
  • Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims
  • Personal assets of the drunk driver or his/her family

"Dram shop" lawsuits against liquor establishments are very tough to win in Illinois, but when the facts are favorable and the settlement offers are not, we are always prepared to go to trial. Mark Maritote stands up to corporate entities and their insurers in pursuit of the compensation our clients need and deserve.
