Daytona Beach Accident Attorneys
Aggressively Pursuing Justice for Drunk Driving Victims in Central Florida
Few accidents are more frightening or confusing than those involving a drunk driver. If you have been injured in an accident caused by the recklessness of a driver under the influence, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including payment for your medical bills, lost wages, property damage and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, the unique challenges associated with drunk driving accidents can be difficult to address without an experienced attorney.
In 2012 in Florida alone, drunk driving fatalities made up 29% of all traffic fatalities with a total of 697 deaths. There were also 12,016 injuries due to alcohol related crashes in the state of Florida and 53,664 DUI arrests according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. With the high prevalence of drunk drivers on Florida roads, it’s no surprise there are so many alcohol related crashes and fatalities.
