DUI Accidents in Florida
All auto accidents are traumatic; even more so when they involved a DUI driver. If a driver under the influence causes an accident, that driver is said to have engaged in reckless conduct. For that reason, there may be additional punitive damages that may be recovered on behalf of injured parties. Furthermore, the victim may have compensation made available through the criminal courts or a state funded victims’ fund. It is important to consult with an attorney experienced in handling DUI Accidents in Florida as accepting one form of compensation may preclude you from be awarded another.
