Damages that Can Result From an Accident with a Drunk Driver
Any type of injury sustained in an accident with a drunk driver, no matter how seemingly minor at the time, can have a lasting impact. Not all long-term injuries are evident right away so our lawyers will take care to evaluate the ongoing effects of the drunk driving accident.
Any medical bills associated with your car accident including future expenses related to an injury sustained in the incident are the responsibility of the drunk driver. Your attorney will include all medical treatment that resulted from your injury in your claim so that you can fully recover.
Pain and Suffering
A severe injury caused by a drunk driver can cause lasting pain that may take a long time to subside. In some cases, it may never go away. Part of achieving just compensation for our clients is to be sure the pain and suffering you have endured, whether physical or emotional, is accounted for in your DUI accident case.
When injuries require extensive physical therapy and rehabilitation in order to get better, these associated expenses need to be factored into your overall settlement. Your lawyer will work with medical experts to determine fair compensation in order to cover any expenses related to rehabilitation.
When injuries are severe enough to cause you to miss work, you may not be able to provide for yourself or your family. Our accident attorneys understand the stress involved in lost income when bills are due, and will work tirelessly to recover damages to cover any lost wages you have suffered.
Loss of Earning Capacity
In some cases, injuries sustained in an accident with a drunk driver are so severe, the victim is permanently unable to return to work. In such cases, our law firm will build a case that can cover a lifetime of lost wages.
Florida Dram Shop Law
Forty-three states have some sort of dram shop law. These statutes are meant to hold third parties responsible if they have served alcohol to someone who is already intoxicated, who then causes an accident while drunk driving. Unique to Florida, Statute 768.125 holds any person who sells alcohol to an underage individual liable for any drunk driving accidents or injuries caused by that individual while in their intoxicated state. Additionally, the same responsibility falls on any person who knowingly sells alcohol to someone who is "habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverages."
If you have been involved in an incident with an underage drunk driver, or someone with a known drinking problem, your attorney will investigate if your case qualifies for dram shop damages. Our drunk driving accident lawyers strive to provide each client with the highest possible settlement to ensure justice is served. Our law firm has the resources to pursue any and all claims relevant to your case, including those provided by the Florida dram shop law.
