Drunk Driver Pedestrian Accidents in New York
Our law firm gets results
Drunk drivers are one of the biggest dangers faced on New York roadways. Driving while under the influence of alcohol can impair a motorist’s ability to stop for pedestrians, especially at night or when visibility is otherwise limited. Drunk driving is against the law, but too many New York motorists break the law and put others at risks.
If you have been injured after being hit by a drunk driver, take your claim seriously from the start. A highly skilled pedestrian accident attorney at Giampa Law will aggressively pursue your case. With decades of experience handling drunk driver cases, our law firm gets results. Contact us today.
How Giampa Law can help
After you’ve been hit by a drunk driver, you should always seek immediate medical attention. Contact the police and take pictures if you’re able to. If there are eye witnesses nearby, take down their information. The action you take immediately will greatly determine the outcome of your claim. We’ll handle the rest so you can focus on recovery.
If you were involved in a hit-and-run or the driver was uninsured, you can still be compensated. New York law requires drivers to carry Supplementary Underinsured/Uninsured Motorists coverage (SUM). This policy covers $25,000 per person and $50,000 per occurrence. But that doesn’t guarantee that all of your medical expenses, loss of wages, or suffering will be covered. That’s why you need Giampa Law on your side. We’ll fight to maximize your compensation.
We’ll hold drunk drivers accountable
If your injury was caused by the negligence of a drunk driver, there is rarely any doubt that they’re at fault. But the driver’s insurance company will still attempt to lower their costs by downplaying or denying your claim. They may offer you a low-ball settlement and say that you don’t need an attorney. Don’t let them take advantage of you. Schedule a free consultation with our trusted law firm. We’ll build a strong case and fight for the full compensation of your medical expenses, loss of wages, and suffering. If the insurance companies refuse to pay, we’ll take the case to trial.
