Michigan bar settles wrongful death suit after fatal crash

In Michigan, when someone is injured or killed by a drunk driver, it is possible for the victim or his or her survivors to file a lawsuit against the driver and/or any establishment that may have over-served the driver. This can result in compensation for medical or funeral expenses, lost income, and other costs of drunk driving car accidents.
