Orlando Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
Representing Clients in Orlando and throughout Florida
The number of accidents and deaths due to drunk driving has decreased in Florida, but driving while intoxicated is still a major cause of automobile accidents. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports that in 2018, there were 5,083 alcohol-related crashes, 2,978 automobile accident injuries, and 370 fatalities due to drunk driving.
If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident or have lost a loved one because a driver was alcohol-impaired, you know how devastating these accidents can be. The physical, emotional, mental, and financial effects can impact the lives of innocent victims of a drunk driving accident for years or entire lifetimes.
At Bailey Fisher Law, we are committed to helping victims of drunk driving accidents and holding the drivers accountable for the damages they have caused. If you or a family member has been injured in a drunk driving accident, we want to make sure you are compensated fully and fairly for your accident-related expenses, pain, and suffering. We have successfully litigated drunk driving accident cases for families throughout Florida and want to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
Florida Drunk Driving Injury Accident Lawsuits and Financial Compensation
Under Florida law, drunk driving that causes serious injuries is a third-degree felony, punishable by up to five years in prison. In addition, drunk driving accident offenders may have to pay restitution, which can be helpful but may not be sufficient to cover all damages. The criminal court may not thoroughly consider all of the damages you and your family could be entitled to, and there could be other responsible parties.
Consulting with an experienced Florida accident attorney about additional legal options is in your best interest. The experienced accident attorneys at Bailey Fisher will obtain the specific evidence necessary for a civil lawsuit to ensure you obtain the compensation you deserve. This compensation could include existing and future medical expenses, lost wages and loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of consortium, and punitive damages. Other responsible parties could include the owner of the car or the vendor who sold alcohol to someone who was underage or known to be addicted to alcohol.
