Driving Under the Influence is the cause of thousands of traffic and boating deaths annually. If you live in Florida, it is likely you or someone you know have been involved in an accident either as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian involving the negligence of an impaired driver.
 
In Florida, the law states that an individual who operates a motor vehicle or watercraft with a BAC (blood alcohol content) above .08 is presumed to have been operating while their normal faculties were impaired. Additionally, those driving under the influence of illegal or even prescription drugs may be charged under the state law as an impaired operator whether the medication was prescribed or not.
 
If a Driver is found to be under the legal limit it does not necessarily mean they were not impaired. Although the negligent operator may not be at a level to be criminally charged, the use of alcohol and/or drugs could still be a major factor in an accident. For this reason, injury cases involving alcohol and/or drugs are very complex and require extensive analysis and consideration of all factors to effectively represent the injured.
 
The 813-Injury-Law Group will explore all potential remedies in cases involving injury accidents and impaired drivers. The “Dram Shop” Act was designed to hold nightclubs, restaurants, bars, and other establishments that serve alcohol in the course of their business accountable for serving someone visibly intoxicated. If these establishments or their employees serve a noticeably intoxicated individual they can be responsible for the damage or injuries caused by that patrons actions. In addition, if a business selling alcohol fails to request or confirm identification, ultimately serving a minor, they can be exposed to liability for the damages that were caused by that minor. Lastly, if alcohol was consumed at a private home, the homeowner may be legally responsible for injuries caused as a result. With numerous avenues to be investigated in a drunk driving/boating case, you need an experienced attorney to make certain no stone is left unturned. The 8113-Injury-Law Group will fight to protect you and hold negligent parties accountable for their actions.
