If you have been injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you could be entitled to a monetary settlement that might include punitive damages. The drunk driver violated the law by operating a vehicle while over the legal blood alcohol limit; thus, any accident he or she caused is held to a higher standard of liability than an ordinary crash. If you suffered this type of motor vehicle accident, contact an experienced personal injury attorney to learn about your options and rights.
At the Law Offices of John M. Howe, we assist people after a drunk driving accident. Our goal is to obtain the maximum compensation for our clients that have been injured in these accidents. We have successfully obtained payment for our clients’ medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Under certain circumstances, we may pursue the bars, restaurants, nightclubs, and social hosts who continued to serve alcohol to a driver who caused an accident. Florida’s Dram Shop Act makes bartenders and party-givers liable for damages and injuries caused by their customers or guests.
In addition to representing clients who have suffered DUI injuries, we act for pedestrians, joggers, and bicyclists. These users of roadways are particularly vulnerable to drunk drivers. Because they are often on the shoulder walking, biking, or running, they are easily hit by an out of control drunk driver.
