Attorney Commentary: What are the legal rights of a victim of a drunk driving accident? Attorney Laurence Banville discusses this common question in the second section of this article.

Syracuse police believe a suspected drunk driver was involved in a 3-vehicle crash that sent 3 people to the hospital in Syracuse on May 4.

According to the police, 34-year-old Brady O’Malley was driving a black BMW eastbound on First North Street near the intersection of Kirkpatrick Street at around 3:39 p.m. on Monday when he struck a parked Jeep.

His vehicle then reportedly continued moving and crashed into a block Chevy at an intersection.

O’Malley, a 24-year-old woman in the Jeep, and an 18-year-old man in the Chevy were all injured and hospitalized at Upstate University Hospital in Syracuse. Their conditions are not known at this time.

O’Malley was charged with driving while intoxicated and several other tickets related to the crash.

Can I Sue After Being Hit by a Drunk Driver in New York?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers 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:

All 50 states allow people to file personal injury lawsuits against drunk drivers who have injured them. Additionally, New York and many other states have dram shop laws, which allow alcohol vendors and social hosts to be sued for drunk driving injuries caused by someone they served alcohol to.

According to New York dram shop laws, an alcohol vendor or social host can be sued in a dram shop lawsuit if they provided alcohol to someone who was either under 21 years old or visibly intoxicated, and that person then went on to cause injuries due to being intoxicated.
