Miami Gardens DWI/DUI Car Accidents
Unfortunately, when you look for a Florida or Miami Gardens DUI attorney online, what you will find are listings for attorneys who defend drunk drivers. The reality is that many people who have been drinking or using drugs and have gotten into accidents will turn to a defense attorney and order to try to reclaim their license, avoid jail time, and otherwise try to excuse their actions.
If you have been injured by a reckless, drunk driver, it can be frustrating to hear that the driver refuses to take responsibility for their actions and their poor decisions. Fortunately, there are things you can do. If you've been injured, you can seek civil charges against the at-fault driver. To find out how, contact Flaxman Law Group at any time.

DUI accidents in Miami Gardens and other communities can lead to civil as well as criminal charges. Since drunk driving is against the law, law enforcement officials may start criminal charges against the at-fault driver. In addition, however, anyone who has been injured by the drunk driver can launch a civil or personal injury claim against the drunk driver.
Seeking a civil claim is important as it can allow injured victims to get compensation so that they can pay for quality medical care, lost wages, at-home care, and other expenses that they may face. It also sends a very strong message to the at-fault driver and other parties that drunk driving is simply unacceptable.
Even if the drunk driver is able to defend themselves against the DUI charge in criminal court, a civil claim still pushes the court system to hold the drunk driver responsible in some way for the injuries that caused. If you are seeking justice and compensation, you may wish to get legal advice about the various legal options you have. A personal injury attorney can help you understand whether you have a legal claim. The DUI driver likely has an attorney defending them – don’t you deserve someone on your side to relate your side of events and to help you secure justice?Do You Have a Claim? Call Us to Find Out
