At Peña & Kahn we represent individuals who have been seriously injured or who have died as a result of the reckless and negligent behavior of a drunk driver. In New York, the law holds that injuries caused by a drunk driver go beyond mere negligence to outright recklessness. As a result, there are times when you may pursue punitive damages in addition to the compensatory damages that are typically awarded in a car accident claim.

We represent clients who have been injured or lost a family member due to alcohol in any of these situations:

  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck and 18-wheeler accidents
  • Taxicab accidents
  • Pedestrian knockdowns and hit and runs

Astonishing statistic: 41 percent of all vehicle-related fatalities involve alcohol. (Statistic: NHSTA)

Pursuing a claim against a drunk driver not only helps the accident victim, but it serves the interests of the entire community. When a careless driver is punished for what he/she has done, it may prevent others from getting behind the wheel while intoxicated, and thus save other lives.

In addition, if you are the victim of a drunk driver in New York, you may also be able to bring a lawsuit against the establishment that served alcohol to the drunk driver.
At Pena & Kahn we will conduct a thorough investigation and pursue every avenue possible to get you the compensation you deserve.
