Last month this Florida-based personal injury blog published a post on the effects that drinking has on the human body. Alcohol can cause a variety of changes in the body in a relatively short amount of time, from impacting the way that a person judges distance and time, to decreasing their inhibitions and making them more likely to take risks. When put together, the effects of alcohol on the human body make driving a dangerous activity to do when drunk.
Unfortunately many people in Florida choose to drink and then drive. When they do, they put themselves and others in the path of harm. Although not every drunk driver causes a car accident resulting in serious injuries, many drunk drivers make poor driving decisions that result in crashes, injuries, and significant losses for victims.
When a person is hurt by a drunk driver they may feel frustrated, scared, and unsure of what to do. As they watch their medical bills pile up and they take time off from work to heal, they may worry about making ends meet and caring for their loved ones. Drunk drivers may face criminal charges due to their conduct, and victims may not know if or when they can assert their own rights to seek justice.
Drunk driving accident victims can turn to knowledgeable legal professionals when they do not know how to proceed on their own. The attorneys of Culpepper Kurland are available to consult with drunk driving accident victims and their families to help them understand what they can do to fight to secure compensation for their losses.
