Skilled DWI Accident Injury Attorneys Serving Franklin County And St. Lawrence County

A drunk driving accident case can have both criminal and civil components. While drunk drivers often face criminal penalties, it is also possible for the people they injured to take action against them in civil lawsuits.

When we handle your drunk driving accident case, we help you understand every aspect of the case — criminal and civil. We walk you through the criminal process from the point of view of the victim. We will tell you what you may expect in your criminal case and explain how it may affect your civil case. We will contact the district attorney and keep in touch with him or her, asking for information and updates to assist us with our inquiries in your personal injury case. Regardless of whether the drunk driver who caused your accident is cleared of all charges, you still have the right to file a personal injury lawsuit.

If you qualify, we will help you apply for assistance from the New York State Office of Victim Services so you can start getting back on your feet. We will review your own insurance policy to determine the types of coverage you have available to you for immediate treatment.

Our investigation team will visit your accident site to gather evidence and interview the police and witnesses. We will speak with your doctors and review your medical records to determine your overall prognosis.
