Representing Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents
If you were injured in a car accident that was caused by a drunk driver, it is important to discuss your case with a lawyer as soon as possible.
The attorneys of Chiariello & Chiariello provide knowledgeable legal representation to people who were injured in drunk driving accidents. We take the time to listen to your concerns and determine all possible sources of financial compensation.
About Drunk Driving Accidents
If you were injured by a drunk driver, we will not only seek compensation from the other party's insurance policy. We will also investigate to determine whether the drunk driver was over-served alcohol at a bar or restaurant. If so, we may hold the establishment that continued to serve the intoxicated driver liable for the damages you suffered.
About New York's dram shop liability law: If a bar or restaurant over-serves a patron who then goes out and injures or kills another person, the establishment can be held legally responsible.
Social Host Laws and DUI Victims
In some municipalities, parents of underage children may be held responsible if young people who consumed alcohol at their home were later involved in a drunk driving accident. These so-called social host laws vary from one town to the next. Our lawyers can advise you of your options and pursue full compensation from all available sources.
