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

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.
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

Why should I contact a spinal cord injury attorney after a spinal cord accident?
The challenges that a spinal cord victim faces are ongoing and life-changing. A skilled attorney who can fight for your rights, compensation, and continuing medical expenses is invaluable.
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.
What is a deposition?
A deposition or EBT (examination before trial) is an opportunity for the defendants’ lawyers to ask you questions under oath about how your accident occurred. Depositions are normally conducted in an attorney’s office or the office of the court reporter who is transcribing your testimony. All parties are usually deposed.
What are the chances of recovery from a spinal cord injury?
Spinal cord injuries are one of the most devastating injuries you can suffer. While there is no way to reverse the damage completely, immediate treatment and medical advances can sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome.
What is a spinal cord injury?
A spinal cord injury happens when the spinal cord is partially or completely severed, resulting in partial or complete paralysis.
What Happens if the Other Driver Was Uninsured?
If the other driver was uninsured we can file an uninsured motorist claim under your vehicle’s insurance policy.  Automobile insurance policies written for New York State motorists are required to have uninsured protection.  This insurance will provide financial compensation to you, if the at fault driver does not have insurance. If you must file through your own insurer, you need a skilled law firm to help you recover the maximum money damages available.

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
