How to Sue A Drunk Driver
Florida Car Accident Attorneys
The state of Florida is responsible for prosecuting the drunk driver for DUI. To win a conviction, the state must meet the high standard of proving that the driver was drunk beyond a reasonable doubt. You may also bring a personal injury claim against the drunk driver.
As part of a plea deal or during the sentencing stage of the DUI trial, the judge might order reparations to the victims. However, the criminal judgment amount is rarely enough to adequately compensate the victims. For this reason, we recommend pursuing your rights in civil court.
Our drunk driving accident attorneys have access to the evidence collected by police officers and presented by the state attorney. We review police records, witness testimony, dash-cam videos, field sobriety tests results and breathalyzer results to prove the drunk driver caused your injuries.
The accumulation of this evidence forms a strong basis for your civil complaint and for our arguments to your insurance company to recover the full amount of your policy coverage.
