Miami Springs DWI/DUI Car Accidents

On average, someone in the US is killed in a drunk driving collision every 53 minutes. On average, someone is injured because of DUI accidents every 90 seconds. The statistics are especially chilling because drunk driving is completely preventable. There is simply no reason and no excuse for this type of reckless driving leading to car collisions in Miami Springs and other communities.

Injuries Caused By DUI Accidents Can Be Deadly

Drunk drivers play a dangerous game when they get behind the wheel. Each year, DUI accidents cause catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Child injuries
  • Facial injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Lacerations
  • Fractures
  • Spinal cord and back injuries
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Head trauma
  • Internal injuries
  • Fatalities

If you have been injured by one of these outcomes, you may find your life changes in a split second. Because of a driver who decides to drink irresponsibly, you may find yourself permanently injured, unable to go back to work, or facing the loss of a loved one.

Injuries Caused by DUI Accidents Can Spell Financial Distress for Florida Families

If you have been injured by a drunk driver, you deserve maximum, full compensation to help pay for property damage, medical costs, lost income, pain and suffering, and other costs. The reality is that the costs following a DUI accident can be catastrophic. You may have to pay for:

  • Lost wages
  • Emergency medical care
  • Transportation to and from doctors’ appointments
  • Follow-up medical care
  • Medication
  • Future expected lost income opportunities
  • Medical devices
  • Diagnostic testing
  • Rehabilitation, physical therapy, and other ongoing treatments
  • So-called cosmetic treatments if you have been scarred or disfigured
  • Future expected medical costs
  • Surgery
  • Hospital stays
  • The cost of making your home and car accessible if you've been permanently injured
  • At-home care or other forms of care if you cannot care for yourself
  • Property damage
  • Car replacement or car repairs

A DUI accident can easily end up costing tens of thousands of dollars. If you have sustained a head injury in Miami Springs or your community, for example, medical treatment can cost one hundred thousand dollars or more in the first year alone. If you have been seriously, permanently injured it is not unusual for the total cost of your injuries to reach in excess of one million dollars, especially if your ability to return to your job is affected. It is important to seek fair compensation in these cases because in a drunk driving accident you have been hurt through no fault of your own. Seeking fair compensation now is important that you can lead the fullest life possible following your injuries.
