Miami Lakes Hit by a Drunk Driver

Drunk drivers know that they are playing a game of Russian roulette, putting lives at risk by getting behind the wheel drunk. Nevertheless, thousands of drivers in Miami Lakes across Florida decide to drive drunk, causing serious injuries and fatalities.

If you have been injured by a drunk driver in Florida, you deserve fair compensation for your injuries and you will want to hold the drunk driver responsible to send a strong message that inebriated driving is not okay. If you would like to review your options or get assistance with your case, you can always reach the Flaxman Law Group for a free consultation.

Fair Treatment and Fair Compensation is Your Right

Unfortunately, when you look for Florida drunk driving attorneys online, you may find that many attorneys who are advertising are in fact defense attorneys looking to help DUI drivers. Most drunk drivers hire attorneys in order to help them contest DUI charges.

This is upsetting.

If you have been hit by a drunk driver and have sustained serious injuries in a pedestrian accident or car accident, you may find yourself having trouble getting fair compensation because a drunk driver may deny that they were inebriated or may fight the charges with the help of an attorney.

This is not fair. If you are the injured party and are facing injuries as well as many expenses due to the other driver’s negligence, you are the one who deserves compensation and assistance. You are the one who deserves compensation to help you pay for the many bills you will be getting related to your injuries.

If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you deserve fair compensation for your pain and suffering, medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses.

Types of DUI Accidents

Drunk driving accidents can occur in a number of cases, including

  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • ATV accidents

These accidents can result in a number of serious injuries, including:

  • Head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fractures
  • Amputations
  • Burns
  • Fatalities
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Disfigurement and scarring

The difference between the average car accident and a drunk driving accident is that a drunk driving accident is completely preventable. Drunk driving is against the law, and so this type of car accident is always preventable if motorists do the right thing and hail a cab or find an alternate route home after drinking. These types of cases should be open and shut, but unfortunately in many cases defense attorneys and try to contest field sobriety tests and other types of tests. In some cases, motorists may refuse to take blood-alcohol test at the scene, making it harder to prove that a driver was driving under the influence.
