Florida Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Demanding the Compensation You Need to Recover from Serious Injuries

After a drunk driving accident, the at-fault driver may face a DUI charge as punishment for criminal behavior. For victims of drunk driving accidents, though, a criminal conviction will not provide the financial relief needed to cover medical bills, missed paychecks, and other losses caused by the driver’s misconduct. This is why you need a skilled Florida drunk driving accident attorney to investigate your crash and demand full and fair compensation for your injuries.

Compensation After a DUI Accident

After a drunk driving crash, victims may face expensive medical bills, costly rehabilitation, and permanent disabilities that forever change their quality of life. Our South Florida drunk driving attorneys will thoroughly assess the losses you have suffered due to your accident so we can demand maximum compensation for you. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may fight for:

  • Payment of all medical bills related to your injury, including surgeries, doctor visits, medicines, and future treatment costs
  • Compensation for lost wages, as well as for reduced earning capacity if you cannot go back to the same job you had before the crash
  • Damage to your vehicle, whether your car needs to be repaired or replaced
  • Compensation to account for your pain and suffering, including the physical, psychological, and emotional toll this wreck and your injuries have taken on you
  • Punitive damages, which can be awarded as a way of punishing the at-fault party

An insurance company may contact you soon after a wreck to offer a drunk driving settlement. Do not give a recorded statement, sign anything, or accept any payment from an insurance company without talking to our experienced attorneys.

Insurance companies will try to take advantage of vulnerable accident victims who don’t know what their case is really worth. You don’t want to risk accepting an offer that will not cover your total costs and losses related to the crash.

  • Who Can Be Held Responsible for Drunk Driving Accidents in Florida?

    In most cases, it is clear the drunk driver was responsible for the crash. However, Florida dram shop law does indicate that businesses such as bars can also be held responsible under certain circumstances. For example:

    • If a bar, restaurant, or other place of business “willfully and unlawfully” sells alcohol to a minor, who becomes intoxicated and causes a crash, that establishment may be held liable for the victim’s injuries.
    • If a bar, restaurant, or other establishment “knowingly serves a person habitually addicted” to alcohol, the business may be held responsible for a resulting crash under the Florida dram shop law.

    Our drunk driving attorneys know the ins and outs of Florida personal injury law, and we will identify every potential source of compensation in your case. Schedule a free consultation with our personal injury attorneys today to learn more.

  • Protect Your Rights After a Drunk Driving Accident

    Although there’s often nothing you could have done to prevent a drunk driver from hitting you, there are steps you can take after a crash to protect your rights.

    • Call the police. A law enforcement officer will test the at-fault driver’s blood alcohol content (BAC) and take notes about the crash. The officer’s accident report will serve as crucial evidence in your case.
    • Seek medical attention. As soon as possible, get treatment for your injuries. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions carefully. Your medical records will provide documentation for how seriously you have been injured.
    • Take photos and make notes about the crash scene. If possible, take photos of the vehicles, your injuries, and anything else that will help show what happened at the scene. Also make notes about how the at-fault driver was acting. Was he or she stumbling, slurring words, or confused? And be sure to get the driver’s name and insurance information.
    • Get the names and contact information for witnesses. Your attorney will talk to anyone who witnessed the crash to understand their perceptions of what happened and how the at-fault driver was acting.
    • Do not give a recorded statement to the insurance company. Although an insurance adjuster may act caring and concerned, the adjuster is working to protect the insurance company, not you. Anything you say can be used against you as you pursue a claim for compensation. It is crucial that you let your personal injury attorney handle all communication with the insurance company.

    When you enlist the help of the drunk driving lawyers at Rosen & Ohr, our team will immediately begin investigating your claim. We handle every aspect of your case from start to finish, so you can focus on your health and healing.
