WHAT TO DO AFTER AN ACCIDENT WITH A DRUNK DRIVER
When involved in an accident with a drunk driver, it is critical that you document the accident to get the facts straight and preserve your right to compensation. If you can, you should take the following steps after your accident:
- Call the police. They will send an ambulance, write up an accident report, and most likely breathalyze the intoxicated individual, which we can use to help prove your claim.
- Get the other driver’s insurance information (if he or she seems aggressive or threatening, do not do this–simply wait in your car for police to arrive).
- Ask witnesses for their contact information.
- Take pictures of the scene of the accident and your injuries.
- Obtain a copy of all medical documentation pertaining to your injuries once you are treated.
- Speak with an experienced New York City & Westchester County drunk driving accident lawyer who can fight for the compensation you need to heal.
NEW YORK’S DRAM SHOP LAW
Most states in the U.S. have dram shop laws in place. A dram shop law essentially allows those injured in accidents by drunk drivers to hold both the driver and the establishment that served the driver accountable for their actions (under certain circumstances). In New York, if you can prove that an establishment (such as a bar or restaurant) served alcohol either to a minor or someone who was already visibly intoxicated and that person caused your accident afterward, you may sue both the driver and the establishment that served the driver. Our firm can help ensure that all liable parties are held accountable for their actions.
Ensure you bring your personal injury claim within three years of the date of your accident (though the sooner, the better). Waiting longer than three years will result in you losing your right to sue. Our firm is prepared to fight for the compensation you deserve and need today. We are on your side.

José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.
- Elizabeth S.
Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.

Jose stuck with me in a very difficult case that many other lawyers would not even take on. It was a three-year battle and luckily with Jose’s help I was not charged criminally. Jose pays very close attention to details and his responses to the opposing side were thorough and full of substance.
