Driving under the influence is a criminal offense in every state. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reported 5,106 alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes in 2018, which is the last available statistic. Of these 5,106 accidents, there were 810 deaths and thousands of serious injuries.
Since the person driving under the influence is often unable to react quickly or make good decisions behind the wheel of a car, the resulting accidents often lead to catastrophic injuries for the people involved. This type of personal injury is life-changing, and the victims face long cooperation times and extensive medical care.
The DUI driver will face criminal charges. The penalties for being convicted of a DUI are very steep in Florida, and the driver will need a good criminal defense team. Being charged with a DUI does not eliminate their responsibility to the injured party for their losses.
