How to Get Compensation After a Drunk Driving Accident
For many visitors to the city, driving in New York may seem intimidating and dangerous. Yet once you understand how to navigate the intricacies of New York traffic, you’ll recognize it isn’t as chaotic as it appears and tends not to be dangerous unless a wildcard enters the scene — such as a drunk driver. Drunk driving not only increases the likelihood of car accidents, it also increases the severity of collisions; the Century Council explains that about 27 percent of driving fatalities in the state of New York are alcohol related. If you believe that the other driver appears to be under the influence, be sure to alert the police at the scene.
Securing compensation also depends on the ability of the firm you hired to effectively present your side of the story. Ultimately, the information regarding the circumstances of the accident will form the foundation of your case. Thus, it is imperative that in pursuing a Bronx drunk driving accident your attorney conduct a complete and thorough investigation of the accident including determining what was seen by bystanders, the police and other drivers and passengers. At Koenigsberg & Associates Law Offices we are experienced in conducting complete and thorough investigations to ensure that your rights are protected from day one.
