Florida drunk driving accident leaves victims critically injured

Drunk driving accidents can unexpectedly, and significantly, disrupt the lives of victims. A drunk driving accident in a nearby Florida community recently left one man critically injured. The head-on drunk driving accident occurred as a result of a wrong way driver. A 32-year old driver of a Hummer was travelling southbound in the northbound lanes. The wrong-way driver crashed his Hummer SUV head on into the passenger vehicle being driven by the 22-year old victim of the accident. The drunk driver's blood alcohol content level, measured by a breath test, measured at .149 which is nearly double Florida's legal limit of .08. The drunk driver was arrested, taken to jail and charged with driving under the influence and another charge. He was later released on bail.

It is important to understand how to develop evidence of fault to demonstrate liability when legal claims are made and insurance companies may be involved.
