Marc Anidjar, from the Law Firm of Anidjar and Levine, commented on the crash: “This was a serious accident where the young man was the victim and not at fault is now recovering from serious injuries due to the actions of others. It is important to note that if you have been in a car accident with a drunk driver, he or she is not the only one who can be made to compensate you for your damages. Other individuals may be held responsible, such as a restaurant owner or a bartender who served alcohol to the drunk driver knowing that he or she was already intoxicated. Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, as well as loss of income and pain and suffering, which is why it is best to immediately seek legal advice”
