As the winter holiday season gets into full swing, there will be a marked uptick in the number and frequency of the parties taking place. Some office parties occur during the daylight hours as New York City cube dwellers raise a cup of cheer together.
What can happen next is that some of those inebriated party-goers attempt to drive home. If they collide with another motorist or a pedestrian, the results can be both catastrophic and tragic.
We see clients who have suffered tremendous injuries and losses at the hands of impaired drivers who act negligently and inflict so much carnage on our streets and highways. We understand that while healing from their injuries, accident victims may be too debilitated to take the actions that they need to do in order to initiate and process a claim for damages against the at-fault driver’s insurance company.
We can step in and manage all aspects of your personal injury claim against the liable parties. Our experienced legal team can maximize your claim against the other driver and pursue a claim for lost wages and other damages. If you are married, in some circumstances it might be possible for your spouse to file a loss of consortium claim for their own damages, thus increasing the total recovery you could receive through a negotiated settlement or court judgment.
This Christmas season, we urge all our readers to drive safely, soberly and defensively to avoid getting into an auto accident with an impaired holiday reveler. Should you have the misfortune to get into a wreck with an at-fault driver, we can help you get the justice you deserve.
