What to Know About Labor Day Drunk Driving Accidents in Manhattan

Labor Day, for many, is a nice breather, as most of us can simply take the day off and enjoy time with our friends and families. Many people choose to drink on Labor Day, which is fine, as long as they do not drive afterward. Unfortunately, many people make this poor choice and end up hurting themselves or others in auto accidents. If this has happened to you, you most likely now require financial compensation to heal. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Manhattan car accident lawyer to learn more about drunk driving accidents in New York City and how we can help if you’ve been hurt in one.

What should I do if I am hurt in an accident with a drunk driver?

If you are injured in an accident with a drunk driver, the first thing you should do is call the police. The police can write up an accident report and, if they suspect the individual is under the influence of alcohol, they will breathalyze him or her. The breath test results can be used in a personal injury claim if you were injured. You should also seek immediate medical treatment, however, as you await the arrival of an ambulance, you should try to document the facts of the accident by taking pictures, obtaining witness contact information, and more. Once you are treated in a hospital, you should ensure you ask your doctor for a copy of all medical documentation pertaining to your injuries. Finally, you should speak with a competent Manhattan car accident attorney who can fight for the compensation you require to heal.

What is the dram shop law in NY?

As you may know, many states have dram shop laws in place that seek to hold certain third parties accountable for alcohol-related accidents and injuries. New York State law says that if an establishment, such as a bar, serves anyone alcohol who is either visibly intoxicated, habitually drunk, or under the age of 21 and that person then drives and causes an accident, the injured party may sue both the individual who caused the accident and the establishment that served the individual for financial compensation. If you’ve been harmed by a drunk driver, the most important thing you can do is seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Our Manhattan car accident lawyer is here to help.
