What if the driver who hit me in Florida was drinking?

If you've been involved in a car crash in the state of Florida and the other driver was drinking, you may have a cause of action for punitive damages. That claim needs to be actually pled separately or under a separate count in the state of Florida, but it may entitle you to what's called punitive damages. Typically, we deal with past medical bills, future medical bills, past pain and suffering, future pain and suffering, and past and future wages. This would actually be a seventh source of recovery on your behalf. Basically, it would be the amount of money that would be given to you to prevent the defendant from ever driving drunk again.

It could increase the value of your case quite substantially.

What Our Clients Say
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.
After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
