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 does a personal injury lawyer do?
Personal injury lawyers help victims recover compensation for injuries and damages that someone else’s negligence caused. They do this by helping clients with insurance claims and/or civil lawsuits. Want to learn more? 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:

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.
What should I do after a car accident?
After a car accident, you should always call for help. While you wait for help to arrive, check for injuries—both your own and those of others involved in the collision. Be sure to accept necessary medical attention from any paramedics on the scene and follow up with a health care provider as soon as possible in the days following the accident. Last but not least, connect with a lawyer––and do it fast. Get more information on what to do after an auto accident by reading our full post.
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.
How Do I Make an Accident Report from a Construction Accident?
If you suffered injuries in a construction accident, you must report the accident to your foreman or employer, but there are other steps you also must take if you hope to receive compensation for your injury. First things first! If you have been hurt, seek medical care and attention immediately. If you need an ambulance, ask for one to be called. Your construction foreman may or may not be aware of your accident. Do not assume they received word of the incident. Even if you verbally told your co-worker about it, this notification will not always help you if your employer does not have actual knowledge of your construction accident. Want to learn more about how to make an accident report? Read our full article here.
What questions should I ask a personal injury lawyer?
When searching for a personal injury lawyer, you should ask questions about their experience, services and results.  You only have one chance to recover and finding the right lawyer can make a big difference in the final outcome of your case, the level of services that you receive, and the amount of compensation that you are awarded.   Want more information?

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

We’ll help you fight for compensation for all your losses, from wages and income to loss of companionship or consortium, from unreimbursed medical expenses to physical pain and suffering. Our New York City motor vehicle accident attorneys handle most types of injury suffered in a car crash, including broken bones, burns, brain or spinal cord trauma, permanent scarring or disfigurement, paralysis, and amputation or loss of limb.
