Drunk Driving Crashes
Auto accidents happen every day on the streets and highways of Florida. Some of these accidents are caused by drunk drivers. The negligent behavior of getting behind the wheel after drinking can lead to a crash that leaves people with serious injuries. The experienced drunk driving crash attorneys at Farrow & Pulice, P.A. help the injured recover financial compensation.
The effects of a drunk driving crash can be devastating. Victims can be left with injuries ranging from cuts and bruises and broken bones to spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injury. Some are left permanent disabled. Medical expenses can become overwhelming very quickly. And when victims can’t return to work, there is a loss of income.
Drinking while driving is negligent behavior because it has a direct impact on a person’s ability to operate a motor vehicle. Drinking alcohol can result in:
- Impaired judgment and decision-making abilities
- Impaired vision
- Slower reaction time
- Loss of coordination
Getting behind the wheel after drinking greatly increases the risk of a crash. And if you were in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you paid the price. Your life was changed in an instant, and you are left trying to recover from your injuries and move forward. You deserve financial compensation for the damages you suffered.
But recovering that compensation can be difficult. Drunk drivers often try to deny responsibility. Insurance companies don’t like to pay full compensation, and may question the extent of your injuries. They may even try to put some of the blame for the accident on you. And they have lawyers looking out for their best interests.
Fighting for the injured in Florida
That’s why you need an experienced attorney fighting for your rights. Our firm has been helping victims of drunk driving crashes for decades. We know the obstacles that insurance companies put up to try to prevent you from receiving financial compensation. And we know how to fight back to overcome those obstacles.
We can investigate your crash to get the facts about what happened. We know where to look for evidence that proves the other driver was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash. We can determine the total amount of damages you have suffered, including current and future medical expenses and lost wages.
Our attorneys build a strong case that insurance companies have to take seriously. Many times, we can convince insurance companies to enter into settlement negotiations. But if they won’t agree to a fair settlement that meets your needs, we will be ready to fight for you in court. Our attorneys are skilled litigators and have won significant awards for clients at trial.
While you have four years following the date of the accident to take legal action, we advise you to consult an attorney as soon as possible. Delaying may come at a cost. Evidence can be lost or destroyed, and the memories of witnesses can fade with time. The sooner we can get started, the stronger the case we can build.
