Were You Hit By a Drunk Driver in Florida?

Contact Our Clearwater Car Accident Attorneys 24/7

When car accidents are the product of pure misfortune and genuine mistakes, the injuries and tragedy experienced by victims and their families are still difficult to swallow. When injuries are caused by the senseless and illegal acts of others, however, these experiences can be tremendously difficult. Such is the case when negligent drivers make the choice to drive under the influence of drugs of alcohol.

A careless and explicitly illegal act, drunk driving injures and kills thousands of Americans in car accidents each year. According to statistics from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Pinellas County has seen upwards of 1,100 drunk driving accidents in each of the past five years. At Roman & Gaynor, we are here to help drunk driving accident victims seek justice.

Maximizing Your Compensation with Punitive Damages

In certain civil cases, courts may award punitive damages to victims as a way of further punishing wrongdoers who commit egregious acts of negligence. These exemplary awards are designed to both punish wrongdoers and to deter others from committing such acts.

As punitive damages are permitted in DUI personal injury cases, our legal team works tirelessly to maximize your compensation by obtaining these awards. In order to accomplish this, it must be proven clearly and convincingly that the other driver either:

  • Is guilty of intentional misconduct — they were aware of the wrongfulness of their conduct and the high probability that damages or injuries would result and, despite that knowledge, continued to pursue that action; or
  • Acted with gross negligence — their conduct reflects a disregard to the safety of others.
