According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), and many other safety organizations, intoxicated drivers cause a significant portion of all car accidents in the country. Despite the clear recklessness – not the mention the illegality – of drunk driving, there are no New York liability laws that state a drunk driver is automatically liable for an accident in which they are involved. People struck by intoxicated motorists still need to go through the motions of proving they are not liable and seek compensation on their own, even if the drunk driver is convicted of driving under the influence (DUI).
