Our Approach to Drunk Driving Cases

Drunk driving accident cases are unique in that they involve a criminal case as well as a civil personal injury case. Our background in criminal prosecution gives us insight into the criminal process and allows us to offer advice on your options for pursuing punitive damages in addition to compensation for your losses.

We can even work with the prosecution to help improve their case, thus improving your chances of obtaining justice.

On your behalf, our drunk driving accident lawyers in Port Orange will:

  • Conduct a thorough investigation of the accident
  • Obtain all evidence, including witness statements
  • Gather police and medical reports
  • Attempt to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company
  • Work with prosecutors during the criminal proceedings stemming from the accident
  • Seek punitive damages during the criminal process
  • Take your case to court if a settlement should prove impossible

From our initial investigation, we will help you prepare the strongest case possible, improving our negotiation position as well as your chances of obtaining a favorable judgment should your case require court intervention.

2019 Drunk Driving Statistics & Habits

Drunk driving is a widespread issue in the United States, as evidenced by this data from The Zebra:

  • About 20% of middle-aged Americans know someone who died in a drunk driving accident
  • Nearly 40% of college students believe they are safe to drive after having 3 or 4 drinks
  • About 10% of drivers think they can still drive safely after 5 or 6 drinks
  • Less than 50% of people use rideshare services to get home after a night of drinking

Based on this most-recent survey data, it is clear that drunk driving is not taken as seriously as it should be by the average motorists. The information also helps explain a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) study that calculated 10,511 DUI deaths in 2018 across the country, which is more than once every hour. The same study also found that two-thirds of all fatal DUI crashes involved at least one driver with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at or above 0.15, which is nearly double the legal limit.

With so many reckless motorists drinking and driving every day, you need to be aware that they could be on the road whenever you go out. Keep our law firm’s number – (386) 333-6613 – at all times in case you need to dial a drunk driving accident lawyer in a hurry.
