Orlando Alcohol- Related Accident Attorneys
While consuming alcohol is a popular social pastime in Florida, drinking too much can also be dangerous, and lead to myriad accident types. In addition to alcohol poisoning and slip and fall accidents, one of the most serious alcohol-related accidents is a drunk driving accident. If you are the victim of a drunk driving accident in Florida, it is important that you contact our alcohol-related accident attorneys at the offices of Moses & Rooth for a consultation on how to recover compensation for your losses.
Injuries from an Alcohol-Related Accident
Alcohol-related accidents are often tragic, occurring at high speeds and making contact with significant amounts of force. When these accidents occur, victims may not survive. If they do, they are often left with severe injuries, including-
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs);
- Spinal injuries;
- Broken bones and other external injuries;
- Soft tissue injuries;
- Amputation injuries;
- Bruises and lacerations; and
- Internal injuries.
These injuries are more than painful; they can be debilitating and limiting, preventing the injury victim from living the life that they once did. This may include never being able to lift a child, return to work, or even enjoy a walk around the block.
Getting the Compensation that You Deserve
Driving when a person’s blood alcohol concentration level is elevated to .08 percent or beyond is not only illegal, it is negligence per se. Even if a person is not intoxicated beyond the legal limit but is impaired, drinking while driving is still considered to be an act of negligence. When negligence of any type, including alcohol consumption, leads to an accident, an injured party has the right to file a personal injury suit to recover compensation for their losses. In order to recover compensation after a drunk driving accident, the victim must prove that:
- The driver operated their vehicle negligently by virtue of being alcohol-impaired;
- The driver’s negligence caused the crash; and
- The plaintiff suffered damages as a result.
In some cases, an injured plaintiff may also have a case against the party who served the intoxicated party alcohol if the serving party sold alcohol knowing that the recipient was not of legal drinking age or was considered to be a “habitual” alcohol addict.
