Fairfield County Attorneys for Those Injured by Drunk Drivers

Greenwich Drunk Driver Car Crash Lawyers

Representation for Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents in Metro New York

Intoxicated drivers are responsible for causing thousands of car accidents every year. In New York state, more than 30 percent of all fatal car crashes are alcohol-related, and in Connecticut, alcohol is a factor in more than 43 percent of such crashes. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident caused by a driver under the influence of alcohol, you may be able to receive compensation for your damages.

At Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC, we know that being involved in a drunk driving accident can completely turn your world upside down. That is why we work closely with our clients to get them the full compensation they need to move on with their lives after an alcohol-related traffic accident.

Experienced Personal Injury Lawyers for Accident Victims in Connecticut

When you are hurt in an accident caused by someone else's recklessness, it is only fair that the party responsible for the accident helps pay for the costs related to your injury. The experienced team of legal professionals at Ivey, Barnum & O'Mara, LLC can help you pursue compensation for:

  • Medical expenses, including emergency room costs, ambulance bills, and ongoing medical treatment;
  • Lost wages due to missed work;
  • Reduced earning potential;
  • Costs related to replacing or repairing your damaged vehicle; and
  • Punitive damages designed to punish the intoxicated driver for his or her wrongdoing.

Tragically, many car accidents caused by a drunk driver result in the wrongful death of another motorist or pedestrian. If you have lost a loved one in a crash involving alcohol, we can pursue compensation for funeral and burial costs as well as emotional trauma and suffering.

Drunk Driver Liability

When a person drives under the influence of alcohol, he or she is not only putting others at risk but the driver is also breaking the law. While the penalties for drunk driving can be severe, the consequences of causing an accident can be much greater than fines or jail time. In most cases, a drunk driver is presumed to have been acting negligently, which means that he or she is presumed to be liable for any injuries or other losses sustained as a result of the accident.

Known as "negligence per se," this principle is often helpful for the victims of accidents caused by drunk drivers, but there are still obstacles to overcome. Insurance companies may try to place some of the blame for the crash on you, even though the other driver was driving drunk. In addition, insurers might also challenge the nature and extent of your injuries in an effort to limit their financial exposure. If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you need skilled legal guidance from an experienced lawyer.
