Getting justice after an accident with a drunk driver

A previous post on this blog talked about how many people, including the lawmakers in one state, are realizing just how much of a line in the sand the common .08 blood alcohol content limit, or BAC, really is. Nevertheless, Florida uses .08 as its legal limit with respect to criminal DUI charges.

As that post discussed, the reality is that, depending on the circumstances, even a small amount of alcohol can profoundly affect one's driving, even to the point of causing a serious accident.

In such cases, the question is whether a person's decision to drink alcohol, no matter how little, contributed to a victim's injuries. If the answer is yes, then the victim should get full compensation for their losses and may even be entitled to punitive damages.

This does not mean, though, that pursuing a drunk driver for compensation is an easy task, and this is particularly so when the driver blew below a .08. Indeed, it takes some experience and skill to establish liability in such situations. One may need to, for instance, rely on a team of engineers and other experts to prove that the accident really was caused by a driver's intoxication.

In this respect, many Tampa-area victims of drunk drivers have in the past been able to rely on the experience and legal know-how of our attorneys.

One of our attorneys is even a former prosecutor who handled drunk driving cases. From this experience, he knows that some cases are not always easy to prove and will take some persistence and dedication to resolve favorably.

Not only do our attorneys have extensive backgrounds in handling drunk driving accidents, they are also personally committed to seeing that justice is done to drunk drivers and that they pay the compensation they legally owe.
