Injured by a Drunk Driver?Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., a law firm in Teaneck New Jersey and New York City, has been helping victims of drunk driving accidents since 1981. Our attorneys are especially devoted to this area of practice because one partner, Steven Benvenisti, was a pedestrian seriously injured by a drunk driver and suffered catastrophic injuries. Steven made a full recovery, and now devotes a great deal of time as a motivational speaker, talking to high school students, college students, and adults about the importance of drinking responsibly.
Thanks to Steve, and to people like him, much more attention is paid to drunk driving and the suffering it causes. Nevertheless, drunk drivers still cause injury and death every day. Over the years, Steven Benvenisti has personally delivered his message to tens of thousands of high school students and has personally given to them his “Contract for Life”to be signed between the teenager and their parents.
We understand how an accident affects your life
Our lawyers aggressively file lawsuits and claims against drunk drivers and their insurance companies to recover damages for their physical and emotional pain and suffering.
In cases where the accident caused a fatality, our lawyers undertake wrongful death suits on behalf of surviving family and of the estate of the deceased. We know that no amount of money will truly compensate for the loss of your loved one. However, it will eliminate one source of stress – financial insecurity – so you can focus on rebuilding your family and your life.
If you were hit by a drunk driver or a family member was killed, contact a lawyer who knows how to help. Call Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., for a free initial consultation.
Taverns and drivers can be liable for drunk driving injuries
Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., has a long and special history concerning the civil prosecution of cases involving intoxicated drivers. In fact, the firm refuses to represent anyone charged with DUI. We also believe that taverns and bars who continue to serve alcohol to someone who is clearly impaired should be held responsible. Fortunately, New Jersey addresses this issue with their New Jersey dram shop law.
We file suits under this liquor liability law against the bar or restaurant that over-served the driver. This sends a clear message to the community that making a few more dollars by continuing to serve a drunk will not be tolerated. Partner Samuel L. Davis litigated cases involving the negligent serving of excessive alcohol by tavern keepers before the Supreme Court of New Jersey in the reported decisions of Kiku v. Choi.
If you have been injured or a loved one was injured or killed in an accident caused by a drunk driver, it is important to contact an attorney right away.

We want to develop an accurate understanding of the accident; waiting too long can mean that evidence is destroyed and witnesses’ memories have faded.
At Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, P.C., we have the resources, experience, and dedication to develop a strong case for compensation after a drunk driving accident.
