Miami Hit by a Drunk Driver
If you have been hit by a drunk driver in a car accident or pedestrian accident in Miami, Florida laws allow you to seek compensation through a civil suit. Seeking compensation in your case is very important because you could face tens of thousands of dollars – or more – in lost income, medical bills, and other costs – because of your injury. The attorneys at the Flaxman Law Group have seen many cases involving victims who face financial distress after a serious car accident. Pursuing justice can ensure this doesn’t happen to you.Pursue Justice Now

There are many ways that a personal injury attorney in Miami can help you if you have been injured in a drunk driving accident:
- An attorney can help find multiple liable parties. In addition to the person who was drinking and driving, the person who was serving the person alcohol may also be held partly will liable. If the at-fault driver was driving a commercial truck or company car, the employer may also be partly liable. Finding multiple liable parties is important because it increases the chances that your compensation will be fair.
- An attorney can explain your rights and the likely total cost of your injuries.
- A lawyer can help you understand your rights and options. You may have more options than simply suing the at-fault driver. You can seek criminal as well as civil claims. You may be able to negotiate with insurance carriers, and there may be resources that you do not know about that can help you.
- An attorney can help you file a legal claim and pursue justice. If you do decide to pursue a legal claim, a personal injury attorney can take care of all the paperwork and legal issues so that you can focus fully on healing.
Being hit by a drunk driver is frustrating and upsetting. After all, all motorists know that drunk driving is dangerous and completely against the law. However, when drunk drivers are caught, they will often use many types of tactics in order to get out of the charge. They may hire a defense attorney who will claim that the driver was not in fact inebriated. They may challenge sobriety tests. They may try to put the blame on the other driver in some cases. None of this seems very fair. If the driver was driving under the influence, they should be held liable for the damages that they cause.
