Drunk Driver Accident Attorneys in Long Island
Injured by an Intoxicated Driver? Our Lawyers Can Help!
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
