DUI Accident Statistics

While DUI accidents are 100% preventable and have stiff civil and criminal consequences, they remain a never-ending cycle of unnecessary injury and pain for citizens nationwide. In 2012, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that one person died every 51 minutes across the United States as a result of a DUI-related crash.

In Florida alone, there were nearly 20,000 alcohol- and drug-related crashes in 2010. More than half of those crashes resulted in death or serious injury.

DUI-related accidents can be costly for the offender. A judge may order restitution to the victim or the victim’s family in a criminal case and the family may pursue a civil case to recover additional damages. A convicted DUI driver will also face higher insurance costs or could lose coverage altogether, especially if the accident was a hit and run.

Types of Compensation in Orlando DUI Accidents

Florida law allows for multiple types of compensation in DUI-related accidents. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed by an intoxicated driver, you may be able to recover money for injuries, lost wages, lost future earnings, property damage, medical costs, long-term care and disability, or the wrongful death of a family member.

The intoxicated driver’s degree of fault may affect a victim’s recovery in a DUI injury case. “Dram Shop” laws may also come into play, where our attorneys hold an establishment, such as a bar or restaurant, accountable for over-serving alcohol to a drunk driver. We may also be able to seek punitive damages against the driver as punishment for intentional misconduct or gross negligence.

It is vital that a well-informed attorney represents a family in such a case because a judgment for one form of compensation may impact another form. The attorneys at Kramer Law is familiar with the applicable legislation and will guide our clients in the proper approach.

The Other Party’s Insurance Company is Calling You. What Do You Tell Them?

Tell them nothing. Before you talk to any insurance representative and before you sign or agree to anything, we strongly urge you to speak with a personal injury attorney at Kramer Law.

Following an accident, insurance adjusters representing the other party may contact you to try to get you to make a settlement or even to waive your rights. Remember, they do NOT have your best interests at heart. It is important that an experienced attorney works with you to protect your rights.
