Fort Myers Drunk Driving

Legal Counsel for Those Injured in Drunk Driving Accidents in Fort Myers Holding Drunk Drivers Responsible for Their Negligence

Drunk drivers pose a grave danger to anyone operating a vehicle on a Florida roadway. A drunk driver can find him or herself operating their vehicle without concern for safety laws or without the ability to drive their automobile responsibly. If a driver operates their vehicle while inebriated and causes the injury or death of another person, they could face serious criminal and civil penalties. Florida law allows injured parties or their loved ones to seek compensation for damages in the event of injuries or loss of life. The law is straightforward, but it’s not always easy to meet your legal goals without assistance. While the law says that a drunk driver is responsible for damages if they’re at fault in a car crash, it’s the injured party's responsibility to prove the driver was negligent. At Pittman Law Firm, P.L., our legal team can help you build a case to seek to recover the compensation you are owed.

Proving Negligence in a Drunk Driving Case

Drunk driving-related personal injury claims can be challenging for some legal firms because these cases are not always straightforward. Just because you know the driver was drunk, that doesn’t automatically lead to a compensation claim. If you were injured in a crash caused by a drunk driver, you would not receive compensation for your losses unless you file a lawsuit. After filing a claim to seek damages, you still have to prove the at-fault driver was responsible for your injuries. Proving the driver was negligent in the operation of their automobile can be a challenge.

Your legal team will have to show the following:

  • The other driver had a duty of care to you and those sharing the roadway.
  • The other driver breached their duty of care to you.
  • Their breach of duty caused the accident.
  • The accident caused you to suffer injuries and losses.

Once your attorney is able to prove the at-fault driver was negligent, your case will be strengthened by evidence of the driver’s egregious behavior. The Fort Myers drunk driving accident attorney on our team can help you build a case to fight for fair compensation for your losses.
