Liability For Drunk Driving Accidents in New York

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents the drunk driving victims and their families in civil court. We’ve asked him to discuss how pedestrians hit by drunk drivers in New York can get the financial compensation they deserve after an accident:

There is no excuse to drive drunk. We all know how dangerous it is to get behind the wheel while intoxicated, but every day countless people choose to disregard the safety of others and drive drunk anyway. When a drunk driver causes an accident and innocent people are injured or killed, it’s important for the victims and their families to be aware of their legal options.

In all 50 states, the victims of alcohol-related accidents may have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit against the intoxicated individual who caused the accident. New York and many other states also have “dram shop” laws which, under certain conditions, allow these victims to sue third parties for providing alcohol to the individual who caused the accident.

In New York, alcohol vendors can be held liable for alcohol-related accidents and injuries if they illegally provided alcohol to the person who caused the accident. However, if the alcohol was legally provided to someone 21 years of age or over, these vendors cannot be held liable for alcohol-related injuries in New York.

If you or someone you love was hit by a drunk driver and you’d like to learn more about your legal options, we advise speaking with an experienced DUI victims lawyer.
