Florida routinely has one of the highest rates of drunk driving accidents in the nation. Drunk drivers cause serious — often permanent — injuries and even death.
If you are injured in an accident that is caused by a drunken driver, or if a loved one was killed in an accident caused by a drunken driver, the experienced personal injury lawyers at The Main Law Firm can help you recover the maximum amount of compensation allowed by law.
Under Florida law, if you can prove that the person who caused a car accident was driving drunk at the time of the accident, it is possible to get punitive damages — designed to punish reckless behavior — in addition to standard economic and noneconomic damages.
When a drunken driver kills another person, the victim's family can seek compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, loss of income, loss of companionship and other emotional hardship. This is true even if the deceased was a passenger in the car driven by the drunk driver.
Florida Intoxicated Driving Punitive Damage Lawyer
As a former prosecutor for the Orange/Osceola County State Attorney's Office, attorney Jedediah Main prosecuted numerous DUI cases and understands what it takes to prove that someone was driving drunk.
Because criminals are afforded more rights than are allowed in civil trials, it is important to realize that you can still obtain punitive damages for your injuries after a drunk driving accident even if the person who hit you is not convicted of DUI.
