Hit by a Drunk Driver?

In New York, drunk drivers are subject to criminal charges that can result in driver's license suspension, fines and jail time. However, the criminal justice system does little for the victims, who may incur extensive hospital bills and be unable to work for weeks, months or even years. The civil justice system can hold the drunk driver and his or her insurance company financially accountable for the impact the accident has on the victim's life.

Our attorneys will work hard to help you obtain the maximum compensation you are entitled to. We have a proven track record of producing outstanding results in cases involving negligence, including more than $100 million in recoveries for your clients.

Dram shop liability and drunk driver accidents: In New York, DUI car accident victims can sometimes sue the bar owner who served the drunk driver. This area of law is known as dram shop liability. Our office has investigated and successfully pursued dram shop cases.
