Drunk & Impaired
Hit By A Drunk Driver?
It’s indisputable that drinking (or using illegal drugs) and driving is a dangerous and potentially deadly decision. Still, countless people choose to get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.
Anyone who has been injured by a drunk driver in Minnesota knows that these accidents can have a significant impact on nearly every aspect of their lives. By pursuing compensation and accountability, you can not only reduce the financial strain that comes with these accidents, but also start to move forward from this traumatic event.
Get The Legal Advocacy You Deserve
At Milavetz, Gallop & Milavetz, P.A., we fight for victims of drunk driving accidents. Our lawyers have more than five decades of personal injury experience. We will work tirelessly to get you the compensation — and justice — you deserve.
You can rely on us to:
- Deal with the insurance issues
- Pursue coverage for your medical bills
- File the right claims within the right time frames
Those claims might include a personal injury case against the drunk driver. Other parties may also be involved. For example, if a commercial driver hit you, you may also have a claim against their employer. And if the driver was drinking at a restaurant or bar before hitting the road, you may also have a legal claim (called a “dram shop” claim) against the establishment (the same is true for private homes and social gatherings).
Lost a loved one to a drunk driver? Our heart goes out to you. We invite you to speak with our legal team compassionate guidance on your options for pursuing a wrongful death claim.

Because the fallout from these accidents is so extensive — affecting all areas of your life, from your physical health and emotional well-being to your finances to your job, hobbies and more — it’s important to work with a lawyer who understands these cases.
Our attorneys know how to avoid money on the table. You can count on us to pursue compensation for all of your losses, including:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Other out-of-pocket expenses related to the accident
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship and financial support (in fatal accident cases)
We can also help you pursue punitive damages, if warranted, to hold the drunk driver accountable and deter others from making the same bad decision.
