New York Drunk Driving Injuries

Being injured due to the irresponsible actions of someone who decided to drink and drive is one of the most frustrating accidents a driver can be involved in. In most of these accidents, the driver who is sober is innocent when it comes to how and why the accident happened, they will be significantly injured, and they might need to fight to be reimbursed the total amount this accident has cost them, as insurance often cannot or will not pay for all bills involved in an accident.
