Representing The Victims Of Alcohol-Impaired Drivers
New York state estimates that in 2010 alone, more than 36,500 individuals were charged with driving under the influence (DUI). The CDC elaborates on the problem, reporting that close to 30 people die each day in car accidents involving drunk drivers. This is equal to one death every 48 minutes.
With such staggering statistics, it is tragic but not surprising that so many innocent people find themselves the victims of serious injuries or even wrongful death. If you or someone you know was hurt in such a collision, turn to the Law Office of Ira Pintel in the Bronx for diligent and aggressive representation. We have a record of multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements.

Pursuing Maximum Financial Compensation
With more than 20 years of experience in personal injury law, our Bronx drunk driving accident attorney understands your full range of rights and options for recovering compensation. In many cases, victims of drunk drivers are eligible for money to cover their:
- Current and future medical bills
- Rehabilitation and ongoing care
- Lost earning ability
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
If you lost a loved one in such an accident, you may also be eligible for wrongful death compensation to cover funeral expenses, loss of companionship and more.
In addition, we will explore the possibility of dram shop liability in order to maximize your compensation. Under dram shop law, a bar or restaurant that serves alcohol to someone who is visibly intoxicated may be partly liable for the accident.
