Liability & Compensation in Drunk Driving Cases
When someone is injured or killed by an intoxicated driver, liability seldom goes beyond that driver. If they are convicted of or plead guilty to DUI, this is legal “negligence per se,” and is usually enough to prove negligence in your claim. In Florida, those who sell or serve alcohol can only be held accountable if the person was either underage or known to be “habitually addicted”.
Whether you were injured as a passenger, as a fellow driver, or as a pedestrian, drunk driving victims can receive substantial compensation. A Florida DUI accident attorney will work tirelessly to recover medical bills, property damages, lost income, and more. In many cases, we can also secure punitive damages. As a contingency fee law firm, we only get paid if you win.
