Drunk Driving Accidents

Whether driving, biking, or riding a motorcycle, you must share the road with others. Unfortunately, some people don't have the same respect for the rules of the road as you do. Their reckless behaviors can put your life and livelihood in peril.

Miami Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Life can change in an instant. You may be driving to work, exercising on your bike, or enjoying the open road on your motorcycle. Then, through no fault of your own, a drunk driver disrupts your life. The result: debilitating injuries, damage to your vehicle, and time spent away from work and loved ones as you recover.

If you were injured in a drunk driving accident, then you don't have to suffer the burden alone. After all, you were doing everything right. The negligent driver put your life and your family's well-being in jeopardy.

Even worse, the insurance companies are dragging their feet as you recover from injuries. The long hours on the phone (sometimes just waiting to talk to a representative), adjusters trying to minimize your claim, and feeling hopeless because you can't understand all the insurance company lingo can be frustrating and overwhelming. But our attorneys are here to help.

Common Types of Miami Drunk Driving Accident Claims that We Settle

If you were involved in an accident caused by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to a cash settlement. This includes money for medical bills, lost wages, damaged property, or pain and suffering.

Drunk driving impairs a motorist's ability to think clearly and react quickly to dangerous traffic situations. As a result, you may fall victim to someone else's selfish behavior when they get behind the wheel after having a few drinks too many or using other mind-altering substances.

According to a recent report by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration, someone suffers an injury from drunk driving accidents about every two minutes. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that an average of 29 people die every day as a result of drunk drivers.

With so many options for transportation without getting behind the wheel, there is no reason why anyone should drive while impaired. Unfortunately, drunk drivers don't often make good decisions. And these misguided choices can adversely affect your life. This simple fact alone motivates The Ward Law Group to help innocent victims achieve the compensation they deserve.

Common Drunk Driving Accidents & Claims

Reckless Driving: Impaired drivers make bad choices while on the road. These include excessive speed, tailgating, random lane changes, and disregarding basic right-of-way laws. All of these driving behaviors put lives at risk.

Head-on Collisions: A drunk driver's inability to stay in his or her lane can cause a head-on collision. These accidents can destroy your main source of transportation and cause significant injuries.

Rear-End Collisions: Impaired drivers have slower reaction times. Even if you stop suddenly due to a hazard on the road or a changing traffic light, a drunk driver behind you may not. The result: painful injuries and a compromised vehicle.

Pedestrian Accidents: Drunk driving doesn't only affect those in other vehicles. A drunk driver's inability to safely navigate the roadways can also affect bicyclists and those simply trying to cross the street.

Hit-and-Run Accidents: Since drunk drivers don't have the common decency to call for a taxi or friend to give them a ride home, it's no wonder that they make bad decisions when involved in an accident. Sometimes, they flee the scene, hoping they don't get caught. Sadly, this can make your insurance claim even more difficult.

T-Bone Accidents: Drunk driving causes poor decisions, especially in intersections. If an impaired driver chooses to blow through a red light, it can cause a T-bone accident.

Wrongful Death: Over one-quarter of fatal car accidents involve drunk driving. Sadly, this impacts more lives than those involved in the wreck. Drunk driving accidents can devastate an innocent family when their main provider suffers an untimely death.

You and your family don't need to suffer because of the bad choices of a drunk driver. Being involved in a drunk driving accident is bad enough. The hassles of dealing with insurance companies shouldn't fall on your already burdened shoulders. The Ward Law Group has helped many families recover losses to pay bills, put food on the table, and ensure a secure future for those injured in drunk driving accidents.

Types of Drunk Driving Injuries & Compensation​

Car accidents, especially those caused by drunk drivers, can cause injuries that interfere with your ability to work, spend time with family, and simply enjoy life. If you manage to escape a drunk driving accident with minor cuts and bruises, consider yourself lucky.

Sadly, those involved in drunk driving accidents often suffer injuries, including:

  • Whiplash
  • Broken bones
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Slipped or herniated vertebral discs
  • Damage to internal organs

An injury caused by a drunk driver is not your fault. Why should you suffer? You can file a claim to help recover costs for your pain and suffering, medical bills, property damage, and lost wages.

Fortunately, The Ward Law Group understands the insurance companies' tricks and will ensure you get the compensation you deserve. For example, a dedicated construction worker suffered physical and brain injuries during a car wreck. We settled his claim for $ 650,000. This helped his family secure their financial future, which appeared uncertain before the settlement.

Maximizing Your Claim: Immediate Steps to Take After a Drunk Driving Incident​

If you're involved in an accident, especially as the victim of drunk driving, try to get to a safe area away from other traffic. Call 911 or your local emergency number. If you are injured, then seek immediate medical help. Even if it doesn't feel like you have significant injuries, you may wish to schedule a medical evaluation soon after the accident. Some injuries don't start to show symptoms until days after an accident. But this doesn't mean that you should wait. A medical examination must be performed no more than 14 days after the accident to be used in court when necessary.

In addition, the police officers on the scene will complete a thorough accident report. This document will go to the insurance companies to help determine exactly what happened and who is at fault. If possible, take some pictures of the scene.

Call your insurance company to open a claim. If you or a family member was injured during the drunk driving accident, seek the help of a personal injury lawyer. These lawyers handle communications with insurance companies and ensure that your claim is handled and settled with your best interests in mind.

The law limits the amount of time that you have to file a personal injury claim because of drunk driving. Enlisting the help of an expert personal injury lawyer, such as those at The Ward Law Group, ensures you can recover expenses for pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and more.
