Drunk Driving InjuriesDrunk driving is worse than negligent driving; it shows a reckless disregard for the safety and lives of everyone else. Those who injure any other driver, passenger or pedestrian while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs are not only liable to compensate you for your injury damages but may also be liable for punitive damages.

If you were a passenger in any car or a pedestrian and were injured by a drunk driver, you are entitled to compensation. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving, more than 15,000 people are killed in the United States each year and 500,000 are seriously injured because of drunk drivers. Many impaired drivers are repeat offenders; they not only injure or kill other innocent drivers but also maim and kill passengers and pedestrians.

Severe injury or the death of innocent people is often the result of drunk driving; justifiable anger is almost always a result.
John Mordecai

"Driving under the influence" (DUI) and "Driving while intoxicated" (DWI) are terms for alcohol-impaired driving. Anyone who drives with a Blood Alcohol Content of 8% or above in the state of Florida is driving under the influence (DUI). It is important to remember that DUI also refers to driving while under the influence of illegal or prescribed drugs.

Law enforcement takes drunk driving injuries very seriously and so does John Mordecai.

Even if the impaired driver who injured you was not convicted of the crime of drunk driving, you are still entitled to compensation for your injuries. Because the burden of proof in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits is not as high as that required to convict an accused in a prosecution for a crime, we may still be able to prove the driver was drunk and obtain an award of punitive damages on your behalf
