South Miami DWI/DUI Car Accidents

According to statistics, one out of every two thousand trips that Americans take each year involve a driver who has been drinking. Statistics also show that about one in every three traffic fatalities involve a driver who has been drinking. In other words, even though only a small number of drivers drive irresponsibly, DUI and DWI accidents are a major cause of injury and death in our communities. If you have been injured by a drunk driver in South Miami or another Florida community, it is important to seek compensation. Not only is it a way to seek justice in your case and to hold the at-fault motorist accountable for their actions, but it's an important step to securing financial compensation so that you can pay for lost wages, hospital stays, and the many other costs that you are likely to face after this type of traffic accident.

The attorneys of Flaxman Law Group would like to help. If you have been seriously injured by a drunk driver, do not hesitate to contact Flaxman Law Group right away to arrange for a free consultation to find out what can be done in your situation to secure fair compensation for you.

A DUI Accident Can Cause You Financial Distress

A drunk driving accident can not only cause severe injuries, car damage, and severe distress, but it can also severely impact your finances. The reality is that even with insurance, a drunk driving accident can cause severe injuries that have a lasting impact on your income as well as your medical bills. After a DUI crash, you may face substantial financial challenges and costs, including:

  • Lost wages
  • Future lost income opportunities
  • Medical bills
  • Medication
  • Emergency room or trauma unit bills
  • Surgical costs
  • Rehabilitation, therapy, or physical therapy
  • At-home nursing care or assisted living facility expenses
  • Car repairs or car replacement costs
  • Incidental costs, such as the cost of installing a ramp in your home or taking a taxi to visit specialists
  • Follow-up medical care
  • A lifetime of increased medical costs if your injuries are permanent
  • Medication
  • Increased medical insurance premiums
  • Medical devices

These costs can be substantial. They can range from tens of thousands of dollars to in excess of a million dollars for serious, permanent injury. Keep in mind that even whiplash can potentially cost you thousands of dollars out of pocket in medication and diagnostic testing alone. You do not want to be caught paying for all these costs yourself. Start taking care of your legal rights after an accident to ensure that as much of your accident costs are covered by compensation as possible. It is important to speak to a personal injury attorney in South Miami or your community to review all your options so you don’t face financial distress as well as the pain and suffering of your injury.
