Can I Sue After Being Hit By A Drunk Driver?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of drunk driving accidents in New York and helps them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Laurence has offered to share some information on the legal options available to drunk driving crash victims in the state of New York:

Victims injured in drunk driving accidents and families of victims who have died in drunk driving accidents always have the option to file a lawsuit against the driver. However, in some states, there is another legal option for these victims.

Dram shop lawsuits allow victims injured in drunk driving accidents to sue the alcohol vendor who provided the driver with alcohol before the crash. New York’s dram shop law states that an alcohol vendor may be sued in a dram shop lawsuit:

  • if they sold alcohol to a minor under the age of 21, or
  • if they sold alcohol to someone who was obviously intoxicated and then went on to cause injuries due to their intoxication.
