Holding Drunk Drivers Responsible For Their Negligence

Why Are DUI Accidents So Dangerous?
Drunk drivers typically do not have full control over their vehicle and their reaction time may be slowed. They may also be more easily distracted. This can result in dangerous situations like:
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- Speeding and reckless driving
- Not paying attention to the road
- Failure to obey traffic signals and road signs
- Running drivers into other lanes or off the road
These types of behaviors can lead to devastating accidents, including head-on collisions, T-bone collisions and rollovers. Resulting injuries are often catastrophic or fatal and may include serious brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and organ damage.
Unfortunately, many drunk driving accidents occur in Florida. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that, over a nine-year period, there were 8,476 DUI fatalities on Florida roads. If you or a family member were injured or killed by a drunk driver, you should speak with a lawyer as soon as possible about filing a personal injury or wrongful death suit.
