Our Car Accident Lawyers on Long Island Represent Victims of DWI Accidents
Car accidents occur in NY for a variety of reasons. Negligent and reckless driving are the primary reasons accidents happen. Negligent and reckless driving can involve texting, speeding, and even driving while fatigued. Driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol also indicate that drivers are negligent or reckless.
When drivers fail to fulfill their duty to drive reasonably safely and cause accidents and injuries, the negligent party can be held legally responsible to the injured victims.
Our car accident lawyers help clients across Long Island, including Hempstead and West Hempstead when they get injured in accidents caused by drivers who are intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. DWI accidents can produce severe injuries, many of which result in fatalities.
If you or anyone in your family was seriously injured or killed by the negligent or reckless driving of someone driving while intoxicated, contact Levine and Wiss, PLLC. Our experienced personal injury lawyers can help you and your family navigate a DWI accident claim and obtain the compensation you deserve.
Why You Need Our Experienced DWI Accident Lawyers
The process of investigating and proving claims on behalf of victims of DWI accidents is a bit more complicated than other car accident cases. Why? Because of the criminal aspect associated with many DWI accidents.
Police involvement in many DWI cases means that there are police reports to secure lab tests to prove blood alcohol content and even court documents that might be useful to your civil claim. Finding out if the driver who caused your accident had alcohol in their system or was convicted of drunk driving in a criminal case can help provide evidence of liability in your civil lawsuit.
Our lawyers at Levine and Wiss know how to get the documents and information to help your DWI accident claim become a strong one. If you are recovering from injuries or mourning the death of a loved one, the last thing you should be worried about is requesting documents, tracking deadlines, and taking phone calls from insurance companies looking to close your claim.
Make sure you have experienced DWI accident lawyers like ours tending to your case. Let us do the work while you focus on your health and your family.
We Can Help Obtain Financial Compensation After a Drunk Driver Hurts You
“Pedestrian Killed on the Side of the Road by a Drunk Driver on the LIE,” “Wrong Way Driver Who Killed Family in Southern State Crash Was Drunk,” “Drunk Driver Plows Into Car, Causing Serious Injuries.”
These are examples of just a few headlines we read here on Long Island. We are all familiar with the dangers of drunk driving, and there have been lofty attempts to keep these dangerous drivers off the road. Yet, these headlines keep coming, along with injuries and deaths from DWI accidents.
For those injured in DWI crashes in places like Amityville, Levittown, and Valley Stream, the recovery can be difficult. Even a small accident caused by a driver under the influence of alcohol or drugs can cause serious physical injuries. The emotional injuries can be equally as serious and hard to treat.
Financial difficulties are a natural offshoot of any accident that results in injuries to an innocent victim.
Have your injuries caused you to miss work? Are you going to be permanently disabled? How will you pay the mounting medical expenses?
How will you support your family?
After a DWI car accident, you might be able to obtain damages when negligence or recklessness of another driver caused your injuries. With our help, you might collect compensation for:
- Lost wages
- Future wages
- Doctors’ bills
- Hospital bills
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Emotional trauma
- Pain and suffering
Don’t leave this process to chance. Make sure you are represented by our DWI accident lawyers at Levine and Wiss.

Our Lawyers Can Demonstrate the Accurate Value of Your Injuries and Losses
While we are working to establish the drunk driver’s liability to you, we will also take care to document the nature and extent of your physical injuries and economic losses.
When DWI accidents result in severe and disabling injuries, such as brain trauma or spinal cord damage, we are careful to include evidence of your need in the future. For example, we assess the costs you might face for additional treatment, adaptive technology in your home and car, and the expenses of personal care and home assistance.
Our lawyers at Levine and Wiss can also provide the court and/or insurance company with receipts for your medical bills, hospital bills, medications, treatments, and all costs associated with the past treatment of your injuries. If you missed work or lost your job because a drunk driver hit you, we can also help you collect lost wages and future wages.
We have experts and seasoned lawyers who understand medical records and can sift through the jargon to understand and present a clear case of the injuries you sustained.
How will these injuries affect your life? How much pain did they cause? How much suffering will you continue to endure?
