Drunk Driving Accident

New York, like all states, is plagued by drunk driving accidents, causing needless pain, suffering, and sometimes death for innocent victims. In 2012, drunk driving deaths accounted for 29 % of all traffic deaths in New York – a 4.9 % increase from 2011. The CDC reported that U.S. adults got drunk and drove about 112 million times in 2010.
According to an article written by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration entitled, “Traffic Stop and You: Improving Communications between Citizens and Law Enforcement” published in March 2001, one in three people on average will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.
Whether you were a driver, a passenger in another vehicle, a passenger in the car with the drunk driver, or a pedestrian involved in an accident with a drunk driver or driver under the influence, commonly referred to as DUI/DWI accident – you deserve to fully recover fair compensation for your injuries. Our lawyers at TonaLaw will protect your rights. We represent victims throughout New York who were innocently injured by negligent drunk drivers.

You Have a Right to Compensation

According to New York State law, victims have the right to file suit against drunk drivers who cause injury resulting from:

  • Multiple-car accidents caused by failure to use appropriate caution, failure to recognize or obey traffic signs or signals, speeding, or inability to properly control a vehicle.
  • Single-car accidents caused by drivers running off the road, losing control or failing to maintain safe distances or abide by traffic signs, signals, or markers.
  • Accidents involving pedestrians.

Our accident lawyers at TonaLaw understand these rights along with the many important layers of legal processes related to drunk driving accident cases. We fight to help you recover the compensation rightfully owed under the law.
