Drunk Driving Accidents We Demand Justice™

Pensacola Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer

Aggressive Representation

Drunk driving accidents are some of the most devastating and preventable types of car accidents. When a driver gets behind the wheel after consuming alcohol, their reaction times, ability to respond to emergency situations, and overall driving skills are severely impaired. This means that if a drunk driver were to get into an accident, the severity of the crash is likely to be much higher than if the driver were sober. In the worst cases, a single drunk driving accident can result in multiple fatalities and catastrophic injuries.

At The Watson Firm, PLLC, we know how devastating drunk driving accidents can be. We are committed to helping victims of these accidents recover the compensation they deserve. If you or a loved one has been injured in a drunk driving accident, you should not go it alone. We can help you understand your legal options and fight for the compensation you need.

Overview of the Drunk Driving Accident Case

A drunk driving accident can result in a wide range of injuries. Some of the most common injuries in these accidents are caused by the impact of the crash itself, such as whiplash. Other injuries are caused by the driver's vehicle hitting another vehicle or a pedestrian. The driver's vehicle may also collide with another stationary object, such as a guardrail or a tree.

The most common injuries in drunk driving accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

The severity of the victim's injuries will determine the amount of compensation they can receive in a personal injury lawsuit. In some cases, the victim's injuries may be so severe that they are permanently disabled. In these cases, the victim may be entitled to receive compensation for their pain and suffering. This is known as non-economic damages.

The Role of Alcohol in a Drunk Driving Accident

The main factor that determines liability in a drunk driving accident is the driver's blood alcohol content (BAC). The state of Florida has strict laws regarding BAC limits for drivers of all ages. If a driver is found to have a BAC of 0.08% or higher, they can be charged with a DUI.

If a driver is charged with a DUI, their BAC will be tested at the time of their arrest. However, if they are pulled over for another traffic violation, the officer may ask them to submit to a breathalyzer test. If the driver refuses to submit to a breathalyzer test, they will be charged with a separate offense.
