Oneonta Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Call us Today at (607) 229-1885

Even the safest driver can be struck by a drunk driver and suffer from serious life-threatening injuries – alcohol-related accidents account for nearly one-third of all car accidents in the country. Many of these accidents result from an intoxicated driver who has little to no regard for speed limits, safe lane changes, and the safety of the drivers with whom they are sharing the road.

If you’ve been injured in a drunk driving accident, your choice in representation can greatly impact the outcome of your case. At Scarzafava & Basdekis, we firmly believe that our clients should not be left to handle the emotional, physical, or financial consequences of sustaining injuries at their own accord. Our dedicated legal team is often referred to as “Lawyers for the People,” and we are backed by decades of legal experience.

New York DUI Laws

Keeping in line with the rest of the country’s DUI laws, drivers in New York are considered to be over the legal limit if they have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 percent or higher. For drivers under the age of 21, however, the limit is lowered to .04 percent. Should you decide to retain representation from our firm, you can trust that we will thoroughly investigate your claim to prove that the other driver is solely responsible for your injuries.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, the court may ask that you prove the following elements:

  • Duty: All drivers owe other drivers the duty to drive in safely and obey all traffic laws
  • Breach of duty: The injured person must show that the other driver failed to obey basic traffic laws
  • Causation: The injured person must show that the other driver’s negligent is what caused the accident
  • Injury: The injured person must show that injuries resulted from the accident
