Tampa Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
Under Florida law, you may be entitled to seek punitive damages against an intoxicated driver for the gross negligence of getting behind the wheel and causing injury or death. Trial lawyer Mitchell Feldman and his legal team are skilled at demonstrating that the person was inebriated by alcohol, high on illegal drugs, or unable to control the vehicle due to the intoxicating effects of prescription medications.
Florida's dram shop law also provides for civil suits against third parties in a drunk driver case:
- A bar or restaurant that served alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person
- A bar or liquor store that sold alcohol to a teenager
- A parent who allowed an underage driver to drink at a party
- A passenger who knew the driver was drunk and let him or her drive anyway
Even if the driver is not charged or convicted of a crime, or was not "legally drunk," he or she can be held responsible in a personal injury lawsuit if we can prove that alcohol or drugs affected their judgment or reactions. We have access to accident reconstructionists, toxicology experts and other experts as necessary.
