New York man sentenced in drunk driving case

A 59-year-old New York man who pleaded guilty to a single count of vehicular homicide has been sentenced to 19 years in prison. The Albany resident admitted that he had a blood alcohol concentration that was double the .08 legal driving limit when he was involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident on May 25. The sentence was handed down following a sentencing hearing in Saratoga County on Nov. 21. The accident claimed the life of a 33-year-old man and his 32-year-old wife, and it left three people seriously injured. The group was on their way to a wedding when the crash occurred.

In New York and across the U.S., distracted driving is becoming an epidemic. In fact, according to the National Safety Council, about nine people die and 100 are injured every day in distracted driving crashes.

How to cope after learning your loved one died in a collision

You might have been in the middle of an average workday when your cell phone rang, or, perhaps, you were spending an evening at home, reading or watching a movie. Hearing an unfamiliar voice on the other end of the phone might have caused you a moment of confusion or concern. When the voice asked you to confirm your identification and informed you that you were speaking to a New York police officer, your stress level likely began to rise.

Changing sleep patterns might lead to accidents

The National Sleep Foundation has said that drivers who are sleep-deprived are the cause of more than 50,000 injuries and 6,400 fatalities on roads in New York and across the country each year. One of the culprits of sleep deprivation is daylight saving time. One of the biggest impacts of people setting their clocks back one hour is that they get behind the wheel the next day having slept a different amount than they're used to.

  3. I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.
