New York Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Holding Bars and Drunk Drivers Accountable for Injuries

If a loved one was injured or killed by an intoxicated driver, we have the resources and experience to sue the responsible parties for your injuries and losses. Our White Plains, New York drunk driving accident lawyers are familiar with negligence lawsuits and the complex insurance issues involved in these accidents.

Despite tougher penalties for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, a disturbing number of drunk driving accidents continue to occur, including fatal car wrecks. The victims of these senseless tragedies are often left shattered by a lengthy recovery or even a catastrophic disability, causing serious emotional and financial stress on their families. Scarcella Law Offices is relentless in pursuing justice for clients to hold bar owners and drunken drivers accountable.

Dram Shop Liability

Liquor establishments carry dram shop insurance for this very situation. If a bartender served alcohol to a person who was "visibly intoxicated" and that person is later involved in a drunk driving accident, the bar is open to a lawsuit for damages. Scarcella Law Offices aggressively investigates the bar's history, the background of its serving staff, and seeks out witnesses to the drinking or the accident, to demonstrate liability.

Auto Insurance Issues and Drunk Driver Lawsuits

If the drunk driver has any recoverable personal assets, we will file a personal negligence lawsuit against that person. However, many drunk drivers have no insurance or "no-fault" coverage too low to pay for all your medical expenses and losses. If that is the case, we seek damages through your own Supplementary Uninsured Motorist/Underinsured Motorist (SUM or UM/UIM) policy. We are not afraid to take on insurance companies to achieve full compensation for our clients.
