A Full Night Of Partying Could Leave You With A Lawsuit

It is not uncommon for friends, co-workers, or even family members to go out for a night on the town every once in a while. Heck, many people do the deed more often than that. After all, there are plenty of nightclubs and bars in Florida, and the night scene always seems to be popping. However, it is of the utmost importance for the individual to use their best judgment and not get behind the wheel impaired. Failing to do so can lead to drastic consequences.

For one, drunk driving can leave a person in trouble with the law. If he or she gets caught, which happens more often than one might think, they are likely to spend at least a night in jail. Persons can be charged with DUIs or DWIs. Then, they will pay a ton of money on bail, new skyrocketing insurance premiums, court costs, and other legal fees. However, worse things can occur.

The impaired driver could strike a pedestrian, bicyclist, motorcycle rider, or a passenger vehicle. If such a disaster transpires, the drunk operator may not even remember the event, but that doesn't make them any less guilty. Unfortunately, the people that get hit are left with severe injuries, and sometimes, they even die. According to Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, in 2017, there were 5,125 alcohol confirmed crashes across the state.

The research also shows that 3,035 people sustained injuries in those collisions. Additionally, another 374 persons lost their lives. Therefore, as everyone can see, these matters are not to be taken lightly. When an individual is lucky enough to walk away from the event with their life intact, some of the common injuries they may receive include but are not limited to...

• Fractures And Broken Bones
• Burns
• Partial Or Full Paralysis
• Internal Bleeding
• Traumatic Brain Injuries

Recovering Is Expensive

After getting hit by a drunk driver, a victim regularly has to pay for things such as an ambulance ride, ER visit, and surgery. As if those costs aren't enough, the individual will probably have prescriptions, physical therapy, and doctor bills for their extended medical needs too. Not to mention, they likely are not able to work during this recovery period, which means they have no money flowing into their bank account. Hence, it can be difficult for them to pay for their regular expenses like rent and car note.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
