Legal Options For People Injured in Alcohol-Related Crashes in New York
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville of Banville Law represents victims of motor vehicle crashes involving alcohol, helping them recover the financial compensation they need and deserve for their injuries. Here are some thoughts from Brian on the legal rights of people injured in boating while intoxicated crashes in New York:
When an intoxicated person injures or kills others in a motor vehicle crash, the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the person who caused the crash. Additionally, New York and several other states have dram shop laws, which allow alcohol vendors to be held liable for injuries or deaths caused by their customers, under certain conditions.
According to New York’s dram shop law, alcohol vendors can be held liable for injuries or deaths caused by customers if the customer was either under 21 years old or visibly intoxicated at the time the vendor served them alcohol.
These rules apply to drunk driving crashes involving automobiles, as well as boat crashes involving intoxicated boat operators.
