One of the main jobs of a good law firm is to determine how many insurance policies may be responsible for compensating a family in a wrongful death case. We would investigate if the drunk driver was driving someone else’s car, and if so, whether the owner was negligent in lending their vehicle to an unlicensed driver. We would also look into whether the drunk driver was working at the time of the accident and whether his employer would be liable. It is also against the law for a bar to serve alcohol to a person who is visibly intoxicated. Under the New York State Dram Shop law, the bar owner is responsible for any accident caused by a drunk driver.
