Nassau County Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

Injury Claims in Drunk Driving Cases

The numbers of injury or fatal accidents caused by drunk drivers are staggering. No matter what punishments are implemented by state legislators, there are certain people who will still get behind the wheel when over the limit, endangering innocent drivers and their passengers. The percentage of intoxicated drivers increases later at night, and EMTs report that the majority of the accidents after midnight involve a drunk driver. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident with a drunk driver in Nassau County, call The Law Offices of Charles R. Gueli. We offer a free initial consultation!

Many fatal car accidents are due to drunk drivers, either wrong way driving, swerving in lanes, or failing to stop at lights or stop signs. These tragedies cause families indescribable grief and loss. Justice must be served, and although the drunk driver will likely be arrested and charged and will be punished through the criminal justice system, the civil court system is where compensation can be pursued in a lawsuit. A large majority of cases are settled out of court, but if necessary, we move forward to trial, and we are extremely experienced litigators.

Our Firm is Different in Experience and Service

Our firm operates differently than many others. We maintain a reasonable case load so that each person gets our full attention, and each case is handled directly by our Nassau County lawyer, not an assistant or paralegal. With more than 20 years in practice, we have gained an exceptional level of insight into how to get results in injury claims and lawsuits, and we are personally committed to each person we represent. Our team has formerly acted as defense counsel for several nationally recognized insurance companies, where we discovered how these companies operate with regard to claims and lawsuits. This knowledge has proven to be extremely valuable in seeking compensation in drunk driving accidents, as well as other personal injury cases.

We urge you to get in touch with us as early as possible after the accident. It may be necessary to preserve evidence and interview witnesses before it is too late. Call now.
