What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Jacksonville DWI Truck Accident Attorney

Drunk Driving Truck Accidents

It has often been said that driving under the influence is not only a personal risk: it makes you a danger to everyone else on the road. This is especially true for truck drivers, whose large vehicles have the potential to inflict far more damage than the average car.

This is why Florida law punishes drunk drivers who hold commercial licenses very severely. If a truck driver is found to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of even .04 or above, that driver will lose his or her commercial license for a full year. A second offense will mean he or she is permanently disqualified from driving a commercial vehicle.

Victims of DWI Truck Accidents

It is certainly a relief when a commercial driver convicted of driving while drunk is removed from our roads. Unfortunately, it does little to heal the injuries the driver may have already caused. At the offices of Jacksonville truck accident attorney Don Guthrie, we understand that many victims continue to deal with the consequences of a truck accident, including:

  • Staggering medical bills
  • New disabilities
  • Physical pain and emotional distress
  • Lost money due to missed work
  • Loss of a loved one

It is not right for people to be left with this kind of suffering when their injuries were caused by a truck driver’s bad decisions. Fortunately, there is a way to see justice done.

Should You File a Lawsuit?

If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk truck driver, a lawsuit will not be able to erase your difficult experience. It can, however, bring you some peace of mind by helping you with the financial complications you may be facing. You may also feel better after seeing justice done against the party responsible for your injuries.
