What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville DUI Injury Lawyer

People who drive while under the influences of alcohol or other drugs are a serious danger to themselves and everyone else on the road. In Florida, there were 1,111 fatal car accidents involving alcohol in 2006 – about one third of the total fatal car accidents that year.

In our state, a first or second DUI (Driving Under the Influence) offense resulting in property damage is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 1 year in prison and a fine up to $1,000. If someone is seriously injured in the accident, that raises the charge to a third-degree felony.

At the offices of Jacksonville DUI injury attorney Don Guthrie, we can help you with legal issues related to:

Why file a personal injury lawsuit?

Even if the drunk driver responsible for your injuries is fined or put in prison, you are still left to struggle with physical pain, recovery, wages you lost while unable to work, medical bills, and sometimes the damaging emotional aftereffects of being in a serious accident.

Jacksonville DUI victim’s attorney Don Guthrie believes that there is no reason for you to shoulder such burdens alone when your injury was caused by another person’s thoughtless behavior.

Taking Action

If a drunk driver has caused injury to you or a loved one, you can file a personal injury suit against that person to regain some of your losses. A financial payment will not be able to undo your physical pain or upsetting memories, but it will ease your recovery by relieving some of your financial difficulty. An injured person should be focused on getting better, not worrying about missed work or medical bills.

If you have sustained juries through being the victim of an intoxicated driver, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit. Jacksonville DUI personal injury lawyer Donald Guthrie will review your case, offer legal advice, and argue persuasively for your rights. Contact our offices at 904-296-1088.
