Jacksonville Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Were You Injured by a drunk driver?
Drivers who make the choice to get behind the wheel of a car after drinking put the lives of everyone else on the road at risk. Even if that driver's BAC is under the legal limit, their judgement is still impaired and could be the difference between making the split-second reaction necessary to save the life of another person. Operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol isn't just dangerous – it's illegal. If you or someone you love was seriously injured by a drunk driver, it's important to seek experienced legal representation right away.
The team of attorneys at The Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. knows how to get results, and we are committed to helping our clients obtain the largest possible personal injury settlements. If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident, it is particularly important to pursue legal action, as the criminal charges the driver faces are not likely to result in any type of compensation for your injuries. Our skilled Jacksonville car accident attorneys are former prosecutors and have extensive experience in proving that a driver has committed the offense of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Call us today to begin the process of filing a claim for damages.
What Compensation Am I Entitled To?
Drinking and driving is extremely dangerous, and anyone who commits this crime places everyone else on the road at risk of serious injury or death. If you have been hurt by a drunk driver, your claim for compensation may include:
- Ambulance bills, emergency medical treatment, and hospital bills
- Rehabilitative care to restore you to your pre-accident condition
- Lost income during treatment and recovery, as well as any reduction in your ability to earn wages
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages for gross negligence
