Broward County Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Pursuing Compensation for Victims & Their Families

Approximately 10,000+ people are killed in a drunk-driving accident. This accounts for approximately 30% of traffic-related crashes. Additionally, millions more are arrested for driving under the influence and subsequently charged with a crime.

These individuals pose an incredible risk to everyone on the road. Many are first-time offenders; even if they intend not to cause harm, getting behind the wheel while impaired by alcohol is already a careless action—and it is important that they are held accountable for the pain and suffering victims experience after being hit by a drunk driver.

Drunk driving accidents are considerably more complex than many forms of car accidents, as a drunk driver is almost always considered at-fault.

The victims, especially families of a loved one who has passed, have the right under Florida law to pursue financial compensation for the loss and even ask for punitive damages to reprimand the driver. Get an experienced attorney by your side to ensure that you can win the case -- call (888) 246-6903 to set up an appointment for a free initial evaluation with a drunk driving accident lawyer in Hollywood, FL serving Broward County.

If you or your loved one was involved in a drunk driving accident, contact our Broward County drunk driving accident attorneys at Kaplan Law Group, P.A.!

Who Is Responsible For Drunk Driving Accidents: About Florida Dram Shop Law

When it comes to drunk car accidents, it is typically clear who the drunk driver was and whether they were responsible for the car accident, injuries, property damages, and more. However, in some cases, it is possible that Florida dram shop law may also apply.

What is Florida Dram Shop Law?

In Florida, the dram shop law indicates that businesses like bars, pubs, or restaurants may be held responsible for drunk driving accidents under specific circumstances.

Situations where the Florida dram shop law may be applicable:

  • A restaurant willfully sold alcohol to a minor who then became intoxicated and caused an accident. The restaurant may be held responsible for the drunk driving accident because they unlawfully sold alcohol to a minor.
  • A bar knowingly served a person who is addicted to alcohol. The person became intoxicated and later caused a car accident. The bar may be held responsible for causing the drunk driving accident.

To ensure that all possibilities are taken into account to help solidify your case, reach out to a Broward County drunk driving accident lawyer backed by years of experience at Kaplan Law Group, P.A..
