Legal Options For Drunk Driving Victims in New York

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville helps the victims of drunk drivers get the justice and financial support they deserve. We’ve asked him to add some input into liability for drunk driving accidents in New York:

When an intoxicated person causes an accident and others are injured or killed, the victims and their families often have grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the intoxicated person. But the options for financial compensation don’t stop here, as residents of New York and many other states also may have the option to file a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor who provided alcohol to the intoxicated person, depending on circumstances.

According to New York’s dram shop law, alcohol vendors (bars, nightclubs, liquor stores, etc.) can be sued for alcohol-related injuries if they provided alcohol to someone who was either under age 21 or visibly intoxicated. For example, if a bar serves alcohol to someone who is slurring their speech and unable to sit upright and that customer causes a DUI crash that night, the people injured in the crash may have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar.

If you or someone you love was recently injured or killed after being hit by a drunk driver, you can learn more about your family’s legal options by discussing your case with an experienced DUI victims lawyer.
