Oneonta Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

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
Breach of duty: The injured person must show that the other driver failed to obey basic
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
