Criminal And Civil Consequences For Drunk Drivers
Those who drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol may be subject to both criminal and civil penalties. Criminal penalties include fines, jail time and driver’s license suspension. The civil justice system is about compensating the person who was injured by the drunk driver.
Compensation in a drunk driving accident case can include losses such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. In addition, our lawyers can seek punitive damages against the drunk driver. Punitive damages are damages beyond your actual losses and are intended to punish the drunk driver.
Our lawyers have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for people who have been injured by the negligence of others in the New York City area. There are few actions more negligent than choosing to drive a motor vehicle while intoxicated.
