Despite strong laws against driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, there are hundreds of drunk drivers on Florida’s roads. If you or a loved one suffered injury because of an intoxicated driver, the law firm of Miller & Jacobs will aggressively pursue justice.
Our attorneys are former prosecutors who know how to establish the other driver’s reckless disregard for safety and to translate that into fair compensation for injuries and losses. We have handled drunk driver accidents in the Orlando area and in the Miami Metro area (Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties).
Contact Us 24/7 For Aggressive Representation. You can reach us day or night for answers and effective representation. Contact us immediately to start the investigation. We offer a free consultation.
If you or a loved one suffers serious injuries as a result of a DUI accident, or if you have lost a family member due to a drunk driving accident, please call our attorneys at Miller & Jacobs immediately in order to help you recover financially from your losses.
Trial lawyers Mark Miller and Rick Jacobs practice exclusively in personal injury. They have obtained notable verdicts and settlements in auto accident and pedestrian accident cases, including cases involving drunk drivers.
Mr. Miller and Mr. Jacobs began their careers as prosecutors and tried dozens of criminal DUI cases. As a result, they are familiar with evidence of intoxication and other factors that will come into play in a civil suit for damages against a drunk driver. They sometimes work in conjunction with the prosecution, but they conduct their own investigation so that the lawsuit can stand on its own regardless of the outcome of criminal charges.
Unfortunately, Florida does not have a strong dram shop law. It is difficult to sue a bar, restaurant or other party for damages unless there was egregious misconduct such as serving alcohol to an underage driver.
However, once we establish that the driver was drunk, we are in a strong position to demand compensation from that person’s insurance company. Most insurers will settle rather than risk an even larger jury award. However, we are prepared to litigate if the insurance company will not negotiate in good faith.
