Fatal Drunk Driving Accidents
A study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that nearly 11,000 people, one every 50 minutes, will die in drunk driving accidents this year. Despite increasingly strict laws and harsh penalties, it seems that nothing will stop people from driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Family and friends who lose their loved ones in fatal drunk driving accidents may experience especially strong feelings of grief and loss. A sudden, violent death is more difficult to process emotionally. It is common for people in this situation to experience issues such as:
- Depression and anxiety
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Difficulty sleeping
- Changes in appetite
If you lost a family member to the negligence of another party, we will seek damages for the loss of your loved one, funeral expenses and future financial needs, which may include the victim’s lost income. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and injuries, we may also seek compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, and related expenses.Call Our Drunk Driving Attorneys Serving Manhattan, Queens and All of New York City
