Identifying a Successful Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

No attorney can guarantee results when they work with you on a personal injury suit. However, finding an attorney who has experience handling car accident claims can be very beneficial. An attorney with a proven track record of being successful means they have experience dealing with reluctant insurance companies as well as successfully litigating car accident injury claims in court.

Common Drunk Driving Accident Injuries

Drunk driving accidents can cause serious injuries to other drivers, pedestrians, motorcycle and bicycle operators, and passengers in any vehicle. Victims will suffer from a range of injuries ranging from broken bones to death. Some of the common injuries suffered in a car accident include:

  • Whiplash
  • Internal bleeding
  • Lacerations
  • Severe skin burns
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Herniated disks
  • Severed limbs
  • Spinal injuries
  • Sprained and torn ligaments
  • Death

Whether you suffered an injury, or you lost someone you loved as a result of a drunk driver, you have the right to hold the responsible party accountable for their actions.

Establishing Fault in a Drunk Driving Accident

Before someone can be held liable in a personal injury lawsuit, they must meet certain legal standards. Under Florida laws, one must prove the person responsible for the injuries of another was due to a negligent act. Clearly someone who is driving while under the influence of alcohol is acting negligently. The second item a victim must prove is that an injury was sustained as a result of the injury. If you were the victim in a drunk driving accident, then the medical records of your injuries are showing you were injured. Generally, unless the vehicle the drunk driver was operating was defective in some manner, the drunk driver is the only responsible party. Police records will typically be sufficient to establish this fact.

Damages That Victims of a Drunk Driving Accident May Seek

Victims of an accident involving a drunk driver can lead to life-altering injuries or death. Depending on various circumstances, victims may be eligible to seek compensation for the following types of compensation:

  • Lost wages during hospitalization and recovery
  • Recovery of all related medical expenses including rehabilitation
  • Damages to their personal property
  • Pain and suffering
  • Any punitive damages that you might recover

Keep in mind since Florida is a no-fault state, you would file a claim with your own insurance company. Victims should speak with a personal injury attorney to find out what rights they have since there are situations that may require the victim to file a personal injury lawsuit to get the compensation they are entitled to.

No Fault Insurance and Getting Compensation

Various factors make filing personal injury lawsuits challenging in Florida, including the no-fault insurance rules. Most drivers carry the minimum insurance, which is $10,000 per person, or $20,000 per crash that may not come close to being enough to compensate you for the monetary losses you suffer after a drunk driving crash. Your lawyer can help you determine the best way to move forward to ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries. Your insurance company will ask you several questions about the accident. Before answering those questions, it is a good idea to consult with an attorney who has experience handling roadway accident victim cases in Florida. Insurance adjusters are generally interested in attempting to get victims to accept less than they might otherwise be entitled to because their goal is to minimize what the insurance company has to pay out for a claim.

Working With a North Port Drunk Driving Accident Attorney

Oftentimes victims of a drunk driving accident do not seek the assistance of a lawyer because they are concerned about the cost. After all, when you are facing mounting medical bills and losing time from work, you do not have extra funds to pay a lawyer. You need not be concerned about this when dealing with Boohoff Law because we will review your case at no charge. When we do accept a personal injury case, in most instances we will take these cases on a contingency basis. A contingency means the fee for our services is only payable from the final settlement we can secure on your behalf.
