Holding the Reckless Party Accountable for Their Wrongdoing

When a driver gets behind the wheel after consuming alcohol or drugs, they are putting everyone on the road at risk of harm. In the event their recklessness causes a collision, it’s crucial to ensure they are held accountable for any injuries that arise due to their conduct. At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we provide aggressive advocacy and untiring representation to victims who have been hurt by drunk drivers. Our attorneys are committed to obtaining the maximum compensation available under the law for our clients who have been injured by intoxicated drivers — and have a successful track record of obtaining large settlements and impressive verdicts in their cases.

Fighting for Justice on Your Behalf

Being struck by a driver who was intoxicated by drugs or alcohol can result in catastrophic and life-changing injuries. If you were a victim of a drunk driving accident, you may be unable to work, perform your usual household tasks, and participate in the activities you once enjoyed. You might also require extensive medical treatment, including surgery, physical rehabilitation, and occupational therapy.

Between losing time from work, accumulating medical bills, and dealing with the insurance company, the aftermath of a drunk driving accident can feel overwhelming. However, you don’t have to go through it alone. The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP will walk with you and protect your rights every step of the way as we work to secure the justice you deserve.

  • Soft tissue injuries

  • Nerve damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Paralysis
  • Permanent disability
  • Fatality

Our personal injury lawyers know how to conduct a thorough investigation to help ensure every party responsible for the drunk driving accident is held accountable — the bar or restaurant that served the defendant may also be liable for the accident under New York’s Dram Shop Law. Applying 80 years of experience in personal injury law, the attorneys at The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP possess the skill, acumen, and knowledge to achieve positive results in even the most complex cases.
