HIT BY A DRUNK DRIVER?
Tampa Drunk Driver Accident Lawyers
Drunk Driving Accident?
When a person who has been drinking makes the decision to get behind the wheel, he or she puts everyone else on the road at risk. Despite the mountains of research showing that a person's ability to operate a vehicle after drinking is greatly impaired, these people think nothing of endangering innocent lives.
If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by a drunk driver, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses and may have a claim for additional damages. These are complex cases that require the attention of an experienced Florida personal injury lawyer. Before you talk to anyone from the other driver's insurance company, talk to an attorney first.

Punitive Damages in Florida Drunk Driving Accidents
Under Florida law, the court has the authority to award additional damages beyond the compensation you are entitled to for medical care and other losses. Punitive damages are intended to punish the drunk driver for his or her intentional disregard for the safety of others. Also referred to as exemplary damages, punitive damages seek to deter people from engaging in dangerous behavior. In every drunk driving case we handle, we diligently seek punitive damages on behalf of our clients.
