Legal Recourse For Victims Injured by Drunk Drivers in New York
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville of crimevictim.Attorney helps victims of drunk driving accidents receive the financial compensation they deserve. Mr. Banville shares some general information on the legal options available to people hit by drunk drivers in New York.
In all 50 states, victims of drunk driving accidents may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against that driver. However, in some states including New York, there is another lawsuit option available in certain cases of drunk driving accidents. It is referred to as a dram shop claim and allows victims to file lawsuits against the alcohol vendor who served the drunk driver before the crash.
There are three instances in which alcohol vendors can be held liable for injuries caused by their patrons:
- if the customer was under 21 years of age, or
- if the customer was visibly intoxicated when served alcohol, and
- if the customer’s intoxication was a proximate cause of an alcohol-related injury
If you or a loved one has been injured in a crash with a drunk driver, you can learn more about your legal options by discussing your case with an experienced drunk driving injury lawyer.
