Fort Lauderdale DUI Accident Attorneys

Lawyers in Fort Lauderdale for Those Injured by Drunk Drivers

It is well-known that driving while intoxicated is illegal and can be deadly. When an individual operates a vehicle after drinking alcohol or using drugs, they are not only committing a crime, but they are also putting themselves and others at risk of harm. In many cases, innocent bystanders can suffer severe injuries or even be killed when a drunk driver is responsible for causing a car accident. If you were involved in such a car wreck, or if your family member was injured by a person who drove while under the influence, The Law Offices of John D. Ameen, P.A. can help you understand your legal options.

The federal government has estimated that around 10,000 people are killed annually in the United States due to alcohol-related accidents—with nearly 1,000 of these fatalities happening in Florida alone. Additionally, millions of Americans suffer from non-fatal injuries in drunk driving accidents. Our firm is aware that even one instance of drunk driving is too many, and our attorneys can help your family receive justice by obtaining the compensation you need during this difficult time.

Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer Serving South Florida

Most of the time, the law presumes that a drunk driver is responsible for injuries suffered by others who are involved in a motor vehicle accident. However, victims can sometimes struggle to secure compensation for their injuries. Insurance companies may attempt to avoid paying out claims in these cases, and they may try to challenge doctors' reports or allege that a victim was partly at fault for a collision. They may even purposefully delay a claim as long as possible in an attempt to force a person to accept a settlement that is lower than what they should receive. Following a DUI accident, It is vital to secure legal representation, and a skilled attorney can help victims protect against unethical practices by insurance carriers.
