Drunk Driving Accidents, Injuries and Deaths in Florida
The most unfortunate aspect of drunk driving is that any injuries or deaths caused by drunk drivers are entirely preventable. Still, many negligent, careless, or reckless individuals continue to drink and drive. The majority of alcohol-related accidents involve a driver whose blood alcohol content (BAC) is over the legal limit. Since 2002, it has been illegal in all 50 states to drive with a BAC that is 0.08 percent or higher. The cost is steep.
Every year, drunk driving causes more than 16,000 accidents in Florida. About 11,000 people are injured and nearly 1,000 people are killed in drunk driving accidents every year in the state. At Martinez Manglardi, we aggressively pursue claims against drunk drivers responsible for serious injuries and death. In addition to pursuing negligence claims, Florida law gives drunk driving victims the right to sue for punitive damages. It is a way to punish a drunk driver for willful, wanton, and reckless conduct.
