Drinking and Driving do not mix.

Drunk driving accidents—a needless tragedy

A bartender serves a customer, even though it is obvious to all around that the person is already intoxicated and knows that drunk driving accidents are all too common.  An hour later, the customer leaves the bar in the vehicle he drove to get there and causes a fatal injury.  How do you value a life?  The average drunk driver rarely has enough insurance or personal assets to cover a wrongful death claim.  Fortunately, in Florida, you may be entitled not only to claims against the insurance policies covering the cars involved, but also to a claim against the bartender and business that served the liquor—a “dram shop” claim.  Bartenders frequently have the last clear chance to prevent drunk driving and should be held accountable when they fail to cut off obviously inebriated drivers or call a cab for them.

Legal responsibility for drunk driving accidents

Drunk driving injury claims are difficult to prove.  At Woodruff Injury Law, we have the experience, the knowledge of the Florida state DUI laws, and the resources to provide powerful representation to clients injured in alcohol-related drunk driving accidents.  These cases include land-based vehicles as well as motorboats, jet skis, yachts, and personal water craft of all types, whose operation while under the influence of alcohol can lead to tragic consequences.  Boating while intoxicated (BWI) is equally as dangerous and illegal as driving under the influence (DUI).  We work tirelessly to see that justice is served for those whose lives are devastated by such senseless accidents.
