Who is Liable in a NYC Drunk Driving Accident?

When it comes to liability, it may seem straightforward that an intoxicated driver is at fault for an accident. However, there may be other contributing factors to consider and other potentially liable parties who contributed to the accident. In this case, you may be able to recover compensation from multiple at-fault parties.

For instance, in New York State, there are what’s known as “Dram Shop Laws,” which say that a business – such as a bar, restaurant, or liquor store – can, under certain circumstances, be found liable for serving and/or selling alcohol to intoxicated people who later cause death or injury to another person. In this instance, if the business is found to be liable, the victim has the right to recover damages from that business.

An accident attorney can help identify all liable parties in your case. Contact our team today to get started on your claim.
