Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys in Lakeland, FL

Serving Central Florida from Offices in Lakeland & Tampa

A contributing factor in approximately one-third of all fatal traffic accidents, drunk driving is an entirely preventable danger. Unfortunately, drivers continue to get behind the wheel while under the influence of alcohol, illegal drugs, and prescription medications. They harm themselves and others, causing serious collisions that forever change or even claim victims’ lives.

Rebuilding after a drunk driving accident can seem impossible, particularly when the insurance company tries to delay payment, undervalues your claim, or says you are to blame. Instead of accepting an unfair settlement or paying out of pocket, put a powerful ally in your corner and fight for the fair compensation you deserve.

Contact the Lakeland drunk driving accident attorneys at Dismuke Law for experienced counsel and personalized, caring support through the duration of your claim or lawsuit. Call (863) 292-6922 today!

Economic & Non-Economic Damages for DUI Accidents

A victim of a DUI accident may be entitled to economic and non-economic damages by filing a third-party insurance claim or personal injury lawsuit against the drunk or impaired driver that caused the collision. This may apply if the victim has experienced catastrophic injuries in the accident.

The following damages may be available in a drunk driving accident case:

  • Medical expenses
  • Ongoing medical treatment or therapy
  • Medical supplies and medication
  • Assistive devices and home modifications
  • Lost earnings
  • Loss of potential/future earnings
  • Property damage
  • Emotional trauma
  • Punitive damages, in some cases
