Miami Beach DWI/DUI Car Accidents

DUI/DWI accidents in Miami Beach and Florida should never happen, but unfortunately they are all too common. Drivers know that they should drink and drive; all motorists are taught the dangers of drunk driving. Despite this knowledge, some drivers choose to still get behind the wheel of a car after drinking. There really is no excuse, since there are so many other options to arrive home safely. A drunk driver can call a cab, call a friend, or wait until they are sober before driving. When motorists are negligent and drive under the influence, they can be held accountable if their recklessness leads to a car, traffic, or pedestrian accident in Miami Beach or your Florida community.

What can you do if you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver? The attorneys at Flaxman Law Group have a track record of helping plaintiffs injured in DUI and other accident cases.

The attorneys at our full-service law firm would like to invite you to contact Flaxman Law Group for a case evaluation if you have been injured. Your initial consultation is free and comes with no obligation.

The Costs Following A DUI Accident Can Be Catastrophic

If you're considering the cost of being injured in a DUI accident, you may be thinking in terms of immediate costs. Of course, your initial costs will include emergency medical care, a doctor’s appointment or two, the cost of replacing or repairing your car, and the time you lose at work immediately. However, you need to keep in mind that there also incidental and long-term costs involved with many traffic accidents. Your total costs may include:

  • Medication
  • Long-term medical costs related to permanent injury
  • Surgical costs
  • Follow-up medical care costs
  • Rehabilitation, chiropractic treatment, physical therapy, and other types of ongoing treatment
  • Surgery
  • Therapy or counseling
  • Property damage
  • Future income loss or lost work opportunities due to long-term injury
  • The costs of renting a car or taking taxis while your car is being repaired
  • At-home care

How will you pay for these and other costs? Unless you have substantial assets and savings, it is difficult to pay for these incidental costs, lost wages, medical bills, and other expenses. They can easily add up to tens of thousands of dollars. For a serious, permanent injury the costs can easily add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars or even in excess of one million dollars over the rest of your lifetime.

Protect Yourself After a Car Crash

It is important to take steps immediately in order to protect yourself against these costs and the financial distress they can bring. One way to start protecting yourself is to contact a personal injury attorney in Miami Beach or your community immediately following your accident. The at-fault driver will probably take steps to prove that they weren't really drunk or will start to question the field sobriety tests. You need to take steps to ensure that the driver is held responsible and that you seek compensation that will help you rebuild your life after your injuries.
