Bars, taverns, and other establishments that serve alcoholic beverages have a responsibility to the general public to do their part in preventing their patrons from injuring others. When one of these businesses serves alcohol to a patron the business could be held responsible for any injuries that patron causes. This is especially true in cases where the patron is already visibly intoxicated and the business continues to serve him or her.
If a drunk driver injured you and you are feeling frustrated because you cannot recover much from them, let us help you. You should not merely settle for whatever you can get from the driver and his or her insurance company. You should allow a NYC accident attorney to review your case and determine if there are other culpable parties who should pay for your injury.
If a business served alcohol to the driver who injured you, you may be able to obtain a sizable judgment against the business. You may be able to be compensated for your medical bills, lost wages, and the loss of the use of your limbs if the injuries were severe enough to cause the loss.
