Experience Cannot Be Taught

Our firm brings something to this area of law that cannot be taught: experience. Having handled thousands of cases and conducted over 100 civil jury trials, we know what it takes to win for our clients. Our knowledgeable attorneys have a reputation for getting results for injury victims and have conducted lectures on drunk driving accidents for the Florida Justice Association.

In a 2009 trial involving a drunk driving victim, case we obtained a $534,000 verdict for a seriously injured client — where the pre-trial offer was $25,000. After the appeal the defense paid us attorneys fees and the verdict plus interest totaling over $730,000 because the insurance company was acting in bad faith. Because no two cases are exactly the same, the results of each case will differ based upon the unique facts of each case; specific results are not guaranteed.

What You Need to Do

After your injury, the first step is to contact us. We begin gathering evidence and take pictures of the scene before it disappears. We do everything to properly prepare your case. If you have uninsured motorist coverage, you may be able to collect compensation even if the driver was uninsured. However, you can still sue the drunk driver for the damage they have caused. Juries do not look kindly on drunk driving and you deserve to be compensated. We often seek punitive damages against drunk drivers, as the law allows you to do.
