How We Hold the Negligent Driver Accountable for Compensating You
After a car accident, you must prove more than its occurrence to collect compensation. You must also prove the at-fault driver was negligent in causing the accident.
Our legal team will gather evidence to prove the following:
- The at-fault driver owed you a duty of care
- The at-fault driver breached their duty to you
- The breach (in this case, driving while intoxicated) caused the accident
- You suffered financial expenses and losses
We will conduct a comprehensive investigation to gather evidence and prove the elements of negligence.
Evidence We Will Collect in Your Drunk Driving Accident Case
According to Florida Statutes § 316.066, you must file an accident if either vehicle required towing or anyone was injured or fatally injured. We will obtain a copy of your police report as it will provide us with the following:
- Contact information for the driver and their insurer
- Contact information for accident witnesses
- The accident’s causes and contributing factors
- The investigative officer’s notes and diagrams
- Police-generated photos of the accident scene
- Field sobriety and BAC testing results
We will not interrupt your physical recovery by asking you to collect evidence. Instead, our legal team will handle it and build a robust case file on your behalf.

Wrongful Death Damages
According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics, 29 people are fatally injured by intoxicated drivers every day in the United States. If your family experienced the loss of a loved one, you have our deepest condolences. You also have our commitment to recover compensation for your pain and suffering.
In Florida, wrongful death damages can include:
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Loss of your loved one’s income
- Loss of their domestic contributions
- Loss of consortium and companionship

Our legal team will explain which family members can file a wrongful death claim. We also ensure such action is filed within the allotted time.
Your Potential Lawsuit is Limited by Florida’s Filing Deadline
You do not have an indefinite time to file a lawsuit for damages. Per state law, you only have two years to file a lawsuit for a personal injury or wrongful death. For injury, the statute of limitations starts with the date of the accident. For a wrongful death case, the clock starts from the date of death.
The sooner you get our law firm involved in your case, the more time we have to prepare your case and ensure it is filed on time.
Pay No Legal Fees Unless We Recover Compensation for You
Our drunk driving accident lawyers will accept your case on a contingency fee basis. We will not charge fees upfront or request any payment out of your pocket. We even cover any necessary costs of preparing or filing your case.
Rather than charge standard fees, we accept a percentage of the compensation you are awarded as our fee. Therefore, if you do not receive a financial award, you will not owe us any fees.
