Protecting The Claims Of Those Injured In Drunk Driving Accidents

The price paid by victims of drunk driving accidents is often heartbreaking. You can’t put a price tag on life, after all; and even in cases when lives can be spared, there are the prospects of a greatly reduced quality of life for you or a family member injured by a drunk driver’s negligence at the wheel. Behind every drunk driving statistic, there was once a person who laughed, lived, loved and was loved.

You don’t have to be a voiceless victim. By speaking out, you may spare others the same senseless tragedy. You’ll also ensure that you get the most resources possible to recover in the wake of a serious accident. When the time is right, our lawyers are here to pursue the financial relief you deserve and to make your case heard on behalf of other endangered lives.

What To Do If You Have Been Injured By A Drunk Driver

If you or a loved one has suffered serious, life-threatening injuries because of a drunk driving accident on Long Island, you can bring a personal injury lawsuit against the offender, with the help of Edelman, Krasin & Jaye, PLLC, as your representation. We will help you prove that the drunk driver caused your injuries and owes you compensation.

To prove liability in a New York DUI accident case, you must show:

  • That at the time of the crash, the other driver was indeed drunk, thereby violating his/her legally required duty to show reasonable care on the road and in relation to you, the plaintiff
  • That this breach of duty caused your injuries
  • That these injuries resulted in actual physical and/or financial damages to you, which require compensation

Compensation for drunk driving victims in New York can be generous and depends on the nature of one’s injuries and the specifics of the case. Dozens of multimillion-dollar settlements have been negotiated in New York, awarding victims of drunk driving a new lease on life.
