Drunk Driving Victims
The chances of being involved in a crash involving a drunk driver are high. All too often, the news contains yet another tragic story of a life lost and families torn apart because an impaired driver decided to get behind the wheel of a car.
No matter what the reason, a driver with years of experience, obeying traffic laws, driving defensively, and always staying on guard can still be involved in an accident.
Get the compensation you deserve
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Traffic Crash Facts Annual Report 2015 cited 5,522 crashes with 508 deaths and 1,936 injuries all confirmed to be related to drunk driving. Alcohol accounted for 31% of all driving deaths in Palm Beach County; 37% in Martin County and 23% in St. Lucie County. According to research, 30% of motorcycle fatalities were a result of alcohol impairment nationwide. If a drunk driver has caused your injuries, you may be compensated. According to the 2017 Florida Statute 324.023, there is a financial responsibility for bodily injury or death. Teenage drivers are far more likely to be involved in a deadly crash than adult drivers and it is estimated that nearly a million teenagers drink and drive. In addition, operating a motor vehicle under the influence of any drug or narcotic, even legally prescribed medication that impairs your judgment, is reckless and irresponsible.
Drivers under the influence of drugs or alcohol are legally accountable for the damage and injury they cause you or your loved ones. If you have been involved in an auto accident caused by a drunk driver, you should seek the advice of legal counsel without delay. In addition to recovering compensatory damages from the drunk driver, you may also be able to recover from the bar or restaurant where he or she was served although clearly intoxicated. You also may be entitled to punitive damages from the drunk driver for their reckless behavior in getting behind the wheel while drunk.
