Orlando DUI Accident Lawyer

Florida Drunk Driving Car Accident Lawyer

In Florida, a driver is considered legally intoxicated if they have a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or higher. However, even a small amount of drugs or alcohol can impair a person's ability to drive safely. If you have been injured in an alcohol-related accident, contact our lawyers for a free initial consultation about your rights and options.

At The Umansky Law Firm, our DUI accident attorneys represent victims of impaired drivers in Orlando and other communities in central Florida. Even if the drunk driver avoids criminal prosecution, introducing evidence of the other driver's alcohol use can have an effect on a civil personal injury case. Juries don't like it when people drink and drive, and that can be a factor in determining how much compensation they award to the victim.

The Effect of Alcohol on Drivers

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, even a small amount of alcohol can affect a driver's vigilance, perception, visual function and judgment. To prove that alcohol was a factor in causing the accident, our attorneys will need to establish that the driver's intoxication had an effect on his or her ability to operate a motor vehicle safely.

Our experience as former DUI prosecutors and attorneys with DUI defense backgrounds gives us a broad understanding of the issues in a drunk driving accident case. We know how prosecutors put drunk driving cases together and we will use that knowledge to help prove your personal injury case. In many cases, we can also seek punitive damages because of the drunk driver's illegal conduct.

Our lawyers can interview the police officer to introduce his or her observations as evidence in your case, even if the driver's BAC was lower than .08 percent. If the officer testifies that the driver weaved in traffic or showed other signs of intoxication, that evidence can be compelling even if the driver was not convicted of drunk driving.
