What if the driver who hit me in Florida was drinking?

Transcript:

If you get hit by a drunk driver in Florida, you have some additional claims that may exist apart from a standard car accident. In Florida, if a person is over the legal limit, you’re entitled to what are known as punitive damages. These are damages designed to punish the individual.

These damages are not covered by any form of insurance anywhere, but it does give rise to an additional claim. It’s a most unfortunate situation that we have with drunk drivers on the road. If you see a person that you think is drunk, please, immediately call 911 and report that individual.

You pay NO FEES or COSTS unless we settle or win your case!
