Drunk Driving Accidents
Serving Miami, Florida and Nationwide
FIGHTING FOR THE SAFETY OF YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
Drunk driving is a serious problem. Every year, tens of thousands of Americans are killed in alcohol-related accidents. The Miami area has certainly seen more than its fair share of these tragic wrecks.
Put bluntly, drunk driving is never acceptable. Getting behind the wheel while sober and capable is a very basic responsibility up to which all drivers must live.
Sadly, many do not, and when someone drives drunk, innocent people might suffer. At The Hickey Law Firm, P.A., our car accident lawyers have helped victims who were hurt in an accident caused by a drunk driver pursue the justice and compensation they deserve.
If you’ve been hurt in a car accident in the Miami, Florida area and you need a lawyer experienced with drunk driving claims, please call The Hickey Law Firm, P.A. today at 855-375-3727 for a free consultation.
An Unacceptable Breach
Personal injury law requires a plaintiff prove several things if he or she is to successfully pursue a claim. One of the most basic conditions for a successful personal injury claim is the presence of a “breach of duty” on the part of a defendant.
Every driver carries a duty to every other driver on the road. These duties can sometimes be a little complicated and esoteric, but many of them are quite clear. One of the most basic duties is sobriety- every driver is expected to be fully alert and under the legal alcohol limit.
As such, an accident that is related to a driver’s intoxication is relatively clear cut from a legal perspective. The drunk driver flagrantly violated his or her responsibilities and caused an accident that resulted in significant injury to another party.
And our car accident lawyers know just how significant these injuries can be. We’ve seen clients whose lives have been permanently altered as a result of a drunk driver’s irresponsibility. As a result, we take these cases quite seriously.
We will thoroughly investigate your accident to determine if alcohol played a role, and we will craft a compelling case on your behalf. And we will not hesitate to pursue every cent of compensation you deserve.
The injuries resulting from a car accident can linger for the rest of your life, as can the resulting medical expenses. We know how important compensation is in this tragic situation.
