We Hold Drunk Drivers Accountable For Injuries

When a person who has been drinking gets behind the wheel of a car, he or she becomes as destructive as a missile. It's frightening to think of the number of people who drive drunk. Injuries from drunk drivers can be devastating — an entire family can be wiped out in a tragic instant.

For more than 30 years, the personal injury lawyers at the Tampa, Florida, law firm of Valenzuela Law Firm, P.A., have assisted individuals and families in seeking compensation for injuries and deaths caused by drunk drivers. Contact us online or call 813-217-5613 today.

Recovering Compensation Following A Drunk Driving Accident

Under Florida law, you're presumed impaired if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is .08 percent or higher. A drunk driver will be punished by the criminal court. However, the criminal court does not compensate the victim of the drunk driver's negligence.

However, victims of accidents caused by drunk drivers and their families can sue the driver in civil court to recover damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages, including lost future income
  • Past and future pain and suffering

Our attorneys may also be able to recover compensation and possibly even damages meant to punish the restaurant or bar where the drunk driver was drinking, referred to as "dram shop" liability.

We represent people who have sustained injuries from drunk drivers, including:

  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
