Drunk Driving Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accidents Caused By Impaired Drivers

Though public officials have worked hard over the past few years to bring awareness to the dangers of drinking and driving, it’s still a significant problem. In fact, recent statistics show alcohol to be involved in nearly one-third of all fatal motor vehicle accidents in the United States. Furthermore, because many drunk drivers are repeat offenders who may have difficulty obtaining adequate motor vehicle insurance, you may encounter challenges trying to recover damages if you’ve been injured by someone under the influence. That’s why it’s essential that you hire an experienced lawyer to protect your rights.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Legal Questions

What happens if I am partially at fault for my car accident?
As long as you are not 100 percent at fault for your car accident you can still recover money damages for your injuries from the other party who caused your accident. Most accidents involve some degree of comparative fault between the parties.
How Much Can I obtain from a Car Accident Settlement?
Several factors influence the amount you might obtain from a car accident settlement. The seriousness of your injury plays a significant role in determining this amount, as it affects your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and many other types of damages. The amount of insurance coverage available plays another significant part in the outcome of your settlement. Of course, a lawyer’s experience building personal injury cases, handling insurance companies, and negotiating fair settlements is yet another important consideration in this equation.

Who do I sue for my injuries in a car accident case?
Claims for car accidents are usually made against the insurance companies for the owners and operators of the vehicles involved in the car accident.

Make sure that all of the proper parties are made part of your case so that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to.
Can I bring a car accident lawsuit if I am undocumented?
Personal injury lawsuits can be brought without regard to your immigration status. Even if you are undocumented you have the right to sue for money damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering.
What is the Average Settlement for a Medical Malpractice Lawsuit?
Since medical malpractice covers such a wide variety of injuries and scenarios, there is no average settlement amount for a medical malpractice lawsuit. Furthermore, many individual factors can affect a settlement’s amount, such as the injury’s permanence and impact on your job and whether your case settles out of court. When thinking about your malpractice case, remember that it is a  personal injury with losses. Malpractice is then subcategorized into different types, each with its own area.  To learn more, please read our full article here.
How do I find a lawyer for a car accident?
Finding a lawyer to represent you in your car accident case requires research—there simply is no way around it. Begin your homework by searching online for car accident lawyers in your area (New York City, Bronx, or Queens, for example). As you review their websites, check for the following characteristics: 
  • Experience in personal injury law—and with car accidents, specifically
  • Results—financial value of settlements and awards
  • Positive testimonials that speak to you

Will my car accident case go to trial?
Most car accident cases settle before trial, however, you must be prepared to go all the way to jury verdict. If the defense counsel or the insurance adjuster senses that you are not ready to go the distance, they will try and settle for less than full value. Make sure your case is prepared to go all the way.

Our attorneys will look at all potential sources of recovery, including:

  • Persons or establishments that served the alcohol—We will investigate to determine Dram Shop or social host liability, looking to see if the at-fault driver was visibly intoxicated or was served a significant quantity of alcohol
  • Roadway defects—We will investigate whether the accident resulted from any negligence in the maintenance or care of the roadway including faulty traffic lights
  • Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage—If the at-fault motorist either lacks insurance or has inadequate insurance to cover your losses, we will look to see if your policy has additional coverage for uninsured or underinsured motorists and pursue those claims
