DRUNK DRIVING VICTIMS

Remember that the only difference between a drunk driving crash and death is CHANCE!

$Confidential (Bad Faith) Recovery for young man who was left as a tetraplegic following a head on motor vehicle crash caused by a drunk driver. The drunk driver died in the accident, but left our client with catastrophic life changing injuries. As part of the recovery, we were able to reduce his health insurance lien from over $650,000.00 down to $25,000.00.

$Confidential Corporate liability for punitive damages – Confidential recovery for a woman who sustained soft tissue injuries when a landscaping truck driven by a drunk driver cut her off and caused a crash. We successfully argued that while insurance coverage generally does not apply to punitive damages, Florida law permits insurance companies to pay for punitive damages when the company was independently negligent in allowing a drunk driver to use their vehicle.

$Confidential Recovery for victim who sustained a broken shoulder and finger after a drunk driver ran a stop sign and crossed into her path in Kendall, Florida.

$Confidential (Bad Faith) Recovery 3 days before trial for a mother of two who was injured when a drunk driver slammed into the back of her car at 9am. She sustained back and neck injuries. The insurance company failed to tender their nominal $10,000.00 insurance policy after we sent them a timed demand. Through litigation, we discovered that the drunk driver took a cocktail of four medications and a 12 oz Budweiser just hours before the crash and did not remember anything for the next 36 hours.

$250,000.00 Recovery for a man who underwent a back surgery after he was hit by a drunk driver. The drunk driver passed away in the accident.

$125,000.00 Settlement for drunk driving victim who sustained neck injuries.

$100,000.00 Recovery for a South Florida woman who was struck by a hit and run driver and sustained soft tissue injuries. Through extensive investigation, cooperation with the police, witness interviews and 911 tape reviews, we were able to locate the drunk driver and win the case against her.

$100,000.00 Recovery for a Florida Keys resident who had an unoperated hernia after a drunk driver slammed into the back of the taxi cab he was riding in.
