Attorneys who go the extra mile for their clients
If you or a loved one is seriously injured in a car accident caused by an intoxicated or impaired driver, we investigate to identify other parties who may be also be liable for causing or contributing to the accident. For example, dram shop laws may allow a claim to be made against a bar, restaurant, club or other establishment that served the alcohol to driver who hit you. This would be in addition to the claim about the driver.
An employer may be held liable for car accidents caused by their employees. Evidence may indicate a failure of an employer to properly supervise the activities of its drivers, or it may show the employer was aware that the driver who caused your accident had a drinking problem.
Compensation for devastating injuries in drunk driving accidents
A collision with a vehicle driven by a drunk driver frequently results in extensive and serious injuries, including:
- Traumatic brain injuries and concussions
- Bone fractures
- Back, neck and spinal cord damage
- Lacerations and burns resulting in significant scarring and disfigurement
The injuries from an accident caused by a drunk driver may require long-term medical care and an extended period of rehabilitation and physical therapy before you can return to work. Making the parties responsible for causing your injuries includes recovering compensation for:
- Physicians services
- Diagnostic tests
- Surgical procedures
- Lost wages
- Diminish future earning capacity
- Long-term disability
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Mental and physical pain and suffering
The death of a loved one at the hands of a drunk driver entitles the family to pursue a wrongful death claim. Our compassionate attorneys understand the suffering a grieving family endures, so we take over the burden of dealing with insurance company claims adjusters to get them the money they need and deserve.
Recovering damages from uninsured and underinsured drunk drivers
It may turn out that the drunk driver causing the accident that injured you did not have insurance or did not have enough insurance to fully pay the compensation you deserve. Our New York City car accident lawyers can pursue claims against the uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage of your auto insurance policy.
Do not be fooled into thinking that your insurance company will simply write a check to pay the claim. We know from experience that auto insurance companies do not want to pay claims even when made by their insured, so we fight to get you the money you deserve.
