Miramar Hit by a Drunk Driver

Driving drunk is a choice. When drivers decide to get behind the wheel of a car after consuming alcohol, they are deciding to put their convenience and their desire to avoid a taxicab ahead of other people's lives and well-being. When these drivers get into a car accident in Miramar and injure others, it is especially galling because these types of accidents are completely preventable.

What to do After a DUI Accident

If you have been injured because of a drunk driver, you may feel vulnerable and angry. You may experience emotional distress, including post-traumatic stress disorder or nightmares and insomnia. You may feel upset, angry, and depressed. It can be difficult for you to return to work or everyday activities and you may find it difficult to return to normal sleeping and eating habits. If this happens to you, it is important to seek help and counseling. While in some cases the sense of grief and loss after a serious car or truck accident will pass, in some cases you will require help in order to get through the upset of being injured in a traffic collision.

In addition to getting help for your emotional distress and physical injuries, contact the Flaxman Law Group if you would like advice about your legal options for pursuing compensation. Your initial consultation is free and comes with no obligation, so you risk nothing.

What Resources are Available to Me After a Car Accident?

If you have been injured by a drunk driver, there are many resources available to help you and many places that you can turn for help:

  • Your doctor and medical staff. Even if you seem uninjured, it is important to speak with your doctor about your accident. You may have sustained a head injury, soft tissue injury, or another injury that may not present symptoms right away. In addition, you may experience emotional upset and upheaval, insomnia, and other symptoms that require medical attention. Your doctor can help you find resources that can help you deal with these problems.
  • Advocacy groups. Groups such as Students Against Drunk Driving (SADD) or Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have volunteer opportunities that allow you to do something about drunk driving in your community. These groups look to pass tougher laws to crack down on drunk drivers and also provide victim assistance that can help you on the road to healing. They can also help you find local victim's assistance programs and other resources.
  • Your family and friends. Your friends and family can help you deal with some of the emotional upset of being in a serious pedestrian accident or car accident. They can support you, listen to your feelings, and help you feel more comfortable and safe as you start to heal.
  • A personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney in Miramar or your community can help you find local resources and can also help you work your way through the insurance and claim process.
