Holiday Drinking and Driving Can Cause Serious Injuries By Worby Vecchio Edelman, LLP on December 10, 2012

Now that the holidays are upon us, there will be an increase in the number of drunk drivers on the road.  In one case handled by Worby Groner Edelman, a drunk driver crossed over the double yellow line and crashed into a vehicle on the other side of the road causing catastrophic injuries to the innocent occupants of the second car.  Since the drunken driver had been drinking for hours at a local bar, we brought a lawsuit against not only the drunken driver, but against the bar owner as well.  There is a law in New York which holds a bar owner responsible for selling alcohol to clearly intoxicated patrons.  In this case, it was clear that the patron was clearly intoxicated, yet the bar employees did not cut the intoxicated defendant off and continued to provide him with liquor.  The case settled, not only against the drunk driver, but there was also a substantial settlement from the bar owner.  If you or someone you know has been involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered injuries as a result of a drunk driver, call the attorneys at Worby Groner Edelman.  We have years of experience in handling all types of motor vehicle accident cases.  Our experienced staff will answer any questions you have and remember, there is never a fee unless we are successful!  Beware of other drivers and Happy Holidays!
