Facts About Drunk Driving
In 2016, there were 5,223 alcohol-confirmed crashes in Florida, resulting in 461 needless deaths. Just one alcohol-related accident death is too many, and we understand the devastating impact the death of a loved one can put on an entire family. As a result, we aggressively strive to secure the maximum possible compensation for all of the drunk driving accident victims that we represent.Our firm employs skilled, diligent and ethical litigation methods and tactical insurance settlement negotiations. We do not hesitate in taking our case to trial if necessary. We do what it takes to secure the best possible outcome for our clients.
In Florida, a driver is considered legally intoxicated if their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level is at or above 0.08%. However, if a driver is actively displaying poor judgment and impaired ability, he or she can still be charged with a DUI at BAC levels lower than 0.08%. The testing results gathered by police at the scene of the accident (or shortly thereafter) are important when building a solid drunk driving accident claim.
We will investigate your accident, gather relevant information and evidence, and collect important evidence such as the arresting officer’s official report. Police reports, eyewitness accounts, on-scene evidence, expert testimony, and the results of chemical and field sobriety tests are all invaluable to your drunk driving accident claim. Therefore, it is imperative to engage our firm at the earliest point possible. When there are significant injuries, we do not simply rely only on police reports. We often hire highly qualified investigators to gather information and interview witnesses. We also often hire engineering experts to “reconstruct” the accident bases on skid marks and other evidence in order to prove your case. In litigation, we also often also obtain through subpoena text messages of the other driver that are relevant as well as data from the onboard vehicle computer.
