Drunk Driving and Personal Injury

Drunk driving is one of the biggest problems in the United States. Approximately 30 people die every year in motor vehicle accidents that involve drunk driving. This means that there is an average of one death every 48 minutes. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that 9,967 deaths were caused by collisions involving alcohol in 2014. This accounted for 31 percent (nearly one-third) of all traffic-related deaths in the United States.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in an accident that involved an intoxicated driver, you need to immediately consult with an experienced New York drunk driving accident attorney to protect your legal rights.

Proving Liability In an Accident Involving an Intoxicated Driver

Generally, we can assist you in proving that a driver’s intoxication was the cause of an automobile collision. We can compile evidence through breathalyzer test results, field sobriety tests, and blood or urine tests to prove that the other driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) was at a level that impaired his or her ability to safely operate the vehicle and to uphold his or her responsibility to exercise due care.

Helping You Obtain the Compensation That You Deserve

Driving under the influence of any controlled substance, including alcohol, is negligent, and it is also illegal.  As such, if a motorist causes a motor vehicle accident and injury while operating his or her car intoxicated, he or she may face even stricter penalties beyond the civil damages they owe you.

In addition to damages for your pain and suffering, we can help you obtain compensation for:

  • Loss of income
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Past and present medical bills, including hospital and therapy bills
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of companionship (in wrongful death claims)
  • Emotional distress
  • Long-term care

Cindy C.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
