According to a 2011 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, an average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before his or her first arrest. Every single time a drunk driver gets behind the wheel, he or she is increasing the odds of motor vehicle accidents and putting lives at risk.

Have You or a Loved One Been Injured by a Drunk Driver?
Driving while intoxicated or under the influence is clearly reckless and dangerous behavior. When a drunk driver injures another person, the criminal courts can punish the driver, but they do nothing to compensate the victim for their losses.
Victims of drunk driving accidents can pursue compensation for their medical bills, wage loss, and other hardships arising from the injury. In many cases, victims may also pursue punitive damages — damages designed to punish the wrongdoer.
If a bar, restaurant or other establishment served the drunk driver alcohol prior to the crash, the accident victim may also be able to pursue compensation under New York’s tavern liability statutes.
Our attorneys will aggressively pursue all avenues of compensation, so you can have the financial resources you need to rebuild your life.
