Brandon DUI Accident Attorneys
Representing the Right of Drunk Driving Accident Victims
It is illegal to operate any type of motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol. Not only can drunk driving result in criminal charges for driving under the influence (DUI), but it can also result in serious and even fatal harm to others. Drunk drivers should be held fully responsible for the injuries and losses they cause, and anyone impacted by a DUI accident should consult with an experienced accident and injury lawyer as soon as possible. If you are in or around the Brandon area, contact Carman & Bevington, P.A. for help.
How DUI Crashes Occur
There is no doubt that alcohol impairs a person’s abilities to safely operate a motor vehicle. Alcohol can have various effects, including:
- Reducing focus and concentration
- Poor judgment and decision-making
- Reckless behavior, including excessive speeding
- Sensory deficiencies, such as blurry vision
- Fatigue and falling asleep at the wheel
Every driver should know how dangerous it is to drive while intoxicated, though many drivers decide to do so regardless. These drivers commonly cause many types of collisions, including head-on and wrong-way crashes, and others suffer life-changing injuries as a result.
Drunk drivers can cause collisions on the road and injure others no matter what type of vehicle they are operating. Some common cases we handle arise from the following traffic crashes:
- DUI accidents involving passenger cars or SUVs
- DUI accidents involving tractor-trailers and other commercial trucks
- DUI accidents involving motorcycles
In addition, any of the above can also crash into pedestrians and bicyclists and cause catastrophic injuries.
Boat and Water-related Crashes
The roads and highways are not the only places that DUI accidents can occur. Anyone who spends time in the Tampa Bay area knows how popular boating, sandbar parties, and water sports are for residents and tourists alike. Too often, people associate a day on the water with drinking, and many people end up operating boats or jet skis while they are under the influence of alcohol.
Operating a watercraft while intoxicated is just as dangerous as driving a vehicle on the road. A drunk boater can injure passengers on the boat, occupants of other watercraft, people swimming or engaging in water sports, or even people on the shore if they run aground.
Holding Drunk Drivers Liable for Your Injuries
While a drunk driver or boater may face serious criminal charges, accident victims must take action to seek the compensation they deserve for their injuries and losses. This often requires filing an insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver. From the start of this process, you should have the help of an attorney with experience handling DUI accident claims. We regularly seek compensation for our clients for the following losses, among others:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost income
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disabilities
- Wrongful death
