Respected Nassau County Lawyers Represent Victims of Drunk Driving
Accomplished Mineola law firm aids clients injured in drunk driving accidents
Drunk drivers should always be held accountable for the pain they cause. With more than 50 years of experience practicing law, the attorneys at Cassisi & Cassisi, P.C. provide caring and reliable legal guidance to individuals injured in New York drunk driving accidents. Amid the uncertainty, stress and devastation that follow DUI crashes, our Mineola office is committed to helping you and your loved ones shape a path forward. While you focus on your health, we concentrate on obtaining the compensation you need to cover the costs of medical bills, lost income and emotional distress.
Attentive legal team guides clients through options for financial recovery
If you have been injured in a New York auto accident, you must initially file a claim for your medical bills against your own insurance policy’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage. For serious injuries that exceed your PIP coverage limits, you can seek compensation from the other driver and any other responsible parties, not only for medical costs but also for lost wages and other damages, including pain and suffering.
A person who operates a car, truck, motorcycle or boat who is under the influence of alcohol is more likely to engage in risky behaviors like speeding or ignoring warning signs. Increased recklessness behind the wheel can lead to severe injuries, such as:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord damage
- Organ damage
- Significant blood loss
In the worst case, a drunk driving accident can be fatal. The damages for such accidents can grow to a profoundly large sum.
Our injury lawyers seek maximum financial recovery for clients. We diligently search for and prepare evidence to demonstrate the negligence of drunk drivers and those who enable them. We maintain close professional relationships with forensics engineers, mechanics, collision reconstruction analysts and other experts with whom we consult when building our cases. We also consult with medical professionals to assess the long-term physical toll of your injuries. These experts can deliver compelling testimony prior to and during trial.
Skilled attorneys establish fault of impaired drivers and careless bartenders
The intoxicated driver may not be the only party who is legally responsible for the accident. New York’s Dram Shop law allows accident victims to sue any establishment that supplied alcohol to the driver when he or she was visibly intoxicated. If the driver stopped by a bar, restaurant or liquor store before causing the accident, that business may be liable for a portion of your injury costs.
The sooner you contact us in the wake of a drunk driving accident, the sooner we can investigate which other parties may be involved and can begin acquiring and preserving crucial evidence and witness testimony. In addition, New York law places time limits on filing automobile accident claims. To help you get started promptly on your claim, our attorneys can schedule appointments on weekends or evenings, and visit your home or hospital room if you cannot come to our office. We are serious about obtaining justice for accident survivors.
