Protecting the Rights of Injury Victims

Any preventable accident can leave the victims feeling frustrated and overwhelmed, but there is something especially maddening about drunk driving accidents. Knowing that your injury or the death of a loved one was caused by another person's choice to drink and drive is too much to take.

We understand that you are angry and want to see justice done. While nothing can undo the losses you suffered, holding the drunk driver accountable may be helpful. At the Law Office of Donald D. Zuccarello, our attorneys ensure that car accident victims and their families recover sufficient compensation to pay medical bills and move forward.

Impaired Drivers Cause Serious Accidents

Drunk drivers can have poor reflexes, slower reaction times, and difficulty judging depth and distance. They may also be distracted and not concentrating on the road. These impairments can cause drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs to:

  • Speed
  • Stop suddenly
  • Cross the center line
  • Miss traffic signals
  • Swerve or weave
  • Drive without headlights
  • Make illegal turns

It is not uncommon for a drunk driver to run another car off the road, drive head on into other lanes or rear end a vehicle. These types of accidents can be extremely dangerous, especially for the passengers in the other vehicle. Those who survive a drunk driving accident may be left with permanent injuries to the back or spinal cord, neck, extremities or brain.

We can hold the drunk driver liable, even if he or she is not convicted of DUI/DWI in criminal court. The standard of proof is lower in civil court, so a criminal conviction is not necessary to obtain damages from the negligent party.
