What Is Considered "Drunk Driving" in Florida

Florida has a "zero tolerance" policy when it comes to drunk driving. This means that any driver who is found to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08% or higher is in violation of the law. In some cases, when the driver is below the legal limit but appears to be impaired, the police officer has the right to arrest them for driving under the influence (DUI) and take them to a nearby station for further evaluation.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of a drunk driving accident in Boca Raton, Florida, you need a dedicated and experienced attorney on your side. At Chad J. Robinson, PLLC, we understand the trauma and devastation that follows such an accident. We're here to help you navigate the legal process and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Injuries Commonly Suffered in Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driving accidents often result in severe injuries due to the high impact and lack of driver control. Common injuries include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs): The force of a collision can lead to head injuries, causing traumatic brain injuries with long-term consequences.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: High-impact crashes may result in spinal cord injuries, leading to paralysis or other serious impairments.
  • Broken Bones: The force of a collision can cause fractures and breaks, often requiring extensive medical treatment.
  • Internal Injuries: The impact of a drunk driving accident can cause internal injuries, which may not be immediately apparent but can be life-threatening.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries: Whiplash and other soft tissue injuries are common in rear-end collisions and can cause long-lasting pain and discomfort.

Parties Liable for Injuries According to Florida Law

Florida law allows for various parties to be held liable for injuries in drunk driving accidents, including:

  • Intoxicated Drivers: Drivers who operate a vehicle under the influence of alcohol are subject to criminal charges and can be held civilly liable for the harm they cause.
  • Establishments Overserving Alcohol: Bars, restaurants, and other establishments that serve alcohol can be held liable if they overserve a patron who later causes a drunk driving accident.
  • Social Hosts: Individuals hosting social events may be held responsible if they provide alcohol to a guest who causes a drunk driving accident.

What Damages Could be Recovered in a Drunk Driving Accident Claim? 

Potential damages that could be recovered in a drunk driving accident may include:

  • Compensation for Medical Expenses: In the aftermath of a drunk driving accident, the physical toll on victims can be immense. Severe injuries often lead to substantial medical bills, including emergency room visits, surgeries, rehabilitation, and ongoing medical care.
  • Lost Wages and Diminished Earning Capacity: Victims of drunk driving accidents frequently face the harsh reality of being unable to work due to their injuries.
  • Pain and Suffering: Beyond the tangible costs, victims often endure immense pain and suffering. The emotional toll of a drunk driving accident can be very overwhelming, impacting mental well-being and quality of life.
  • Property Damage: In many drunk driving accidents, property damage is inevitable. Vehicles may be totaled or require extensive repairs.
  • Punitive Damages: Drunk driving is not only a negligent act but also a willful disregard for the safety of others on the road. In certain instances, punitive damages may be sought to penalize the at-fault party and discourage similar manners in the future.
