Attorney for Drunk Driving Accident Victims in Orlando
Drivers have a responsibility to operate their vehicles in a safe manner that doesn’t endanger the life of anyone else. This means driving within the speed limit, obeying all posted signs and signals, yielding to other vehicles and pedestrians, and checking blind spots before making lane changes. It also means never getting behind the wheel after drinking. Unfortunately, many drivers ignore this rule, making them susceptible to both civil and criminal liability.
Victims of drunk driving accidents and their families have the right to pursue a personal injury claim in court in order to recover damages. If the drunk driver has already been charged with or convicted of DUI, you have the right to immediately file a claim without having to wait until the criminal trial concludes. The driver does not have to be convicted in order for you to file a civil claim.
Who Can Be Held Liable?
There are a few different parties that may be held liable for a drunk driving accident, including:
- The intoxicated driver, for choosing to drive drunk
- Event/party hosts, for serving alcohol to an inebriated person
- Bar/restaurant owners, for failing to stop serving drunk patrons
