Drunk Driving Accidents in West Palm Beach, FL
Holding Impaired Drivers Responsible for Their Actions
A driver who is under the influence of alcohol or any controlled substance will be more likely to cause or be involved in a car accident,
motorcycle accident or
truck accident due to delayed reaction time and impaired judgment. Drunk drivers place all others who share the road with them at risk of injury in traffic collisions. If you were injured in a drunk driving accident, you might have the right to take legal action against the person who caused the collision. To find out more about what you can do in this situation, contact a
West Palm Beach injury attorney at Casey D. Shomo for a complimentary consultation.
By getting involved early in the process, an experienced attorney such as Mr. Shomo can launch a thorough investigation into the collision. This will be necessary to establish exactly what caused the accident. Proving that the other driver was drunk is not enough. Your lawyer will need to prove that the drunk driver acted negligently in some way and caused the accident, such as by running a red light, speeding, etc. By proving the driver's negligent conduct and the extent of your injuries, your lawyer can then seek the full financial compensation to which you may be entitled.
