Drunk Driver Accident Attorneys in Long Island

Injured by an Intoxicated Driver? Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help!

All car accidents can be damaging, but crashes involving intoxicated drivers can be especially destructive. Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol have slower reflexes and an overall weakened ability to operate a motorized vehicle safely. When intoxicated people choose to get behind the wheel, then not only endanger themselves, but they put every other motorist, passenger, and pedestrian on the road at risk. If you or a loved one is injured by a drunk driver, you may be able to seek compensation.

At Gruenberg Kelly Della, we understand how stressful and frightening a car accident involving an intoxicated driver can be. When another person’s carelessness directly causes you and your family harm, you have the legal option to hold the negligent party responsible. Our skilled attorneys at Gruenberg Kelly Della will work diligently to see that you receive maximum compensation for your injuries.

Proving Driver Intoxication

The responding officers at the site of your crash will ask the driver to perform either a blood or breath test to determine intoxication, which can be used against them in court. The legal limit for driver intoxication is a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08%. If a driver is discovered to have a BAC at or above the legal limit due to drugs or alcohol, he or she will be charged with a DUI. In addition to the BAC, the arresting officer may also give his or her testimony in court to attest to the intoxicated state of the driver.

Seeking Compensation for Damages

Drunk driver accidents can be extremely dangerous, and often lead to painful and costly injuries, or even death. Our firm will work with you to establish the total damages you sustained in your crash, and any future costs that may occur as a result of the accident. If you will require future corrective surgeries, physical therapy, pain management, therapy to treat PTSD, or other medical attention, you may be able to seek advanced compensation.

You may be eligible for compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses
  • Vehicle damage
  • Damage to other personal belongings
  • Loss of work or wages
