It is no surprise that many automobile accidents are caused by drunken drivers or drivers who are distracted because they are using a cell phone or texting. Oftentimes, drivers who are cited with DWIs or violations of the vehicle and traffic law are required to appear in criminal court. These individuals can also be held civilly responsible for injuries they caused while driving drunk.
At Dreyer Boyajian LLP, our Albany car accident lawyers thoroughly investigate and monitor the criminal process to ensure that your rights as a victim of a vehicular crime are protected. When handling these types of motor vehicle accident injury cases, we draw from our extensive knowledge of personal injury matters as well as the experience of a former DWI prosecutor on our staff.

When warranted, we investigate whether the intoxicated driver was served at a bar or restaurant at a time when he or she was already visibly intoxicated. A separate claim is authorized under the New York General Obligations Law Section 11-101(i) to hold the bar or restaurant owner accountable for the injuries and damages caused by serving alcohol to an intoxicated driver.
Whether you suffered traumatic brain injuries, closed head injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, broken bones, amputations or other injuries, our firm can aggressively pursue the compensation you deserve for the injuries you have suffered. In addition, our Albany DWI accident lawyers also represent surviving family members in wrongful death lawsuits after a loved one has been lost in a fatal car crash.
If a drunk driver has injured you or a member of your family, you have rights and options. The drunk driver needs to be held responsible for his or her actions.
