Have you been injured in a Florida accident?
Every driver on the roads has the responsibility to act appropriately towards other vehicles. This means abiding by the laws, keeping their attention focused on driving, and responsibly operating their car. When a driver fails to abide by these standards, they place themselves and others at risk. One of the most common and most destructive actions a driver can take is getting behind the wheel after consuming alcohol.
A person who is driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is far more likely to become involved in an accident than a sober driver. A drunk driver will most likely have a delayed reaction time and may not respond to emergency situations correctly. With impaired physical and mental abilities, a drunk driver is also less likely to see other motorists, traffic signals, pedestrians and cyclists.

Any auto accident may be very serious, resulting in broken bones, spinal cord injury, brain injury, whiplash and even death. The repercussions of a drunk driving accident may last with a victim and his or her family for many years or possibly for life.
When you have been injured by a drunk driver, you need an attorney that knows how to fight for you and hold the negligent party accountable for their actions:
- Locate and preserve evidence
- Speak with witnesses
- Examine police reports
- Reconstruct accidents for a comprehensive look
- Examine medical records
- Recover compensation to cover the impact on your life
In addition to the driver themselves, we may be able to hold the bar or restaurant that served the drunk driver responsible for your injuries. A bar cannot serve a patron that is visibly intoxicated, and if they did not stop serving alcohol and you were injured, they may also be held accountable.
