Drunk driving accidents are caused by drivers who get on the road under drugs or alcohol. Despite the obvious consequences that accompany drunk driving, many drivers across Florida still get behind the wheel after one drink too many.
Our Boca Raton drunk driving accident lawyers have handled these cases before. At Dolman Law Group, we can handle your case and fight for justice and fair compensation.
Your Drunk Driving Accident Could Entitle You To Recover Damages
Victims of drunk driving accidents are eligible for compensation for the injuries and loss from the accident. Additionally, if you lost a loved one from a DUI accident, you would have the right to file for compensation under Florida laws.
You should talk to your Boca Raton lawyer as soon as possible after the accident to start the litigation process early. The more time you have to create a solid case, the greater the chance you will earn compensation from the at-fault party.
Each drunk driving accident is unique, but our lawyers are equipped to help you determine possible costs and items of compensation. Damages for drunk driving accident victims can include:
- Pain and suffering, including mental and emotional trauma
- Loss of mobility
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Disfigurement or loss of limb
- Damage to personal property
- Medical costs
- Burial and funeral costs
Drunk Driving Accident Injuries Our Firm Has Seen in Our Practice
Injuries sustained from a car accident can be traumatic, life-threatening, and may even cause life-long disability. These injuries vary depending on the crash's impact, the victim's seat belt position, the size of the automobiles involved, and so on. Injuries for which you might receive compensation for include the following:
- Soft tissue injuries and nerve damage
- Brain injuries
- Amputations and paralysis
- Internal organs damage
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back and neck injuries
Drunk driving accident victims can develop post-traumatic stress disorder, a psychological disorder associated with the emotional damage of the accident. Another form of psychological trauma your car crash lawyer can include as part of your potential compensation claim is general lost enjoyment of life.
Our Team Will Establish and Prove Fault and Liability in Your Case
Drunk driving accidents are primarily caused by people behind the wheel while intoxicated. Intoxication (from alcohol or drugs) reduces the ability of an individual to function or operate heavy machinery; this includes driving. CBS12 reporting confirms how severe these accidents can be.
It also reduces one's ability to make decisions, such as when to stop or slow down. Basic driving principles are challenging to conduct, and unfortunately, it's usually an outside party that deals with the consequences.
These accidents are 100% avoidable, as the driver had the mind to get home another way. Primarily, the driver could be held liable for your injuries. However, certain third parties could also be responsible for your injuries. These could include restaurants and bars that knowingly sell alcohol to minors, known addicts, or DUI offenders.
However, social hosts may not be liable for your injuries sustained in a DUI accident, even if they provide alcohol to a known addict. If they provide alcohol to a minor, though, they could be liable for your injuries and forced by the law to compensate you.
