Sebring Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
Seeking Justice & Compensation on Your Behalf
Driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) is never okay; state law prohibits anyone from operating a motor vehicle or being in actual physical control of a vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher. Additionally, anyone under the age of 21 in Florida can be charged with DUI if they are found to be in control of a vehicle with a BAC of 0.02 percent or more. Despite these laws, countless individuals choose to get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle after drinking—and the consequences can be deadly.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 30 people died every single day in the United States due to drunk driving accidents. That amounts to more than 10,000 people killed by drunk driving every year. Those who don’t die in these accidents often sustain severe, life-altering injuries, the total lifetime costs of which can easily reach hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars.

How Civil Drunk Driving Lawsuits Work
After a DUI accident, the drunk driver will likely face criminal penalties; these include fines, driver’s license suspension, and possible jail time, among other consequences. Criminal DUI cases are brought by the state and are completely separate from any civil proceedings that may take place after the accident. In a civil court case, the person who suffered injuries and/or damages as a result of the drunk driver’s actions (known as the plaintiff) seeks financial compensation for those damages.
If you were injured by a drunk driver, you can seek compensation for your:
- Medical bills/expenses
- Lost income and/or wages
- Pain and suffering
- Vehicle damage repairs
- Transportation costs related to attending medical appointments
- Future lost earnings and future medical care
- Loss of life quality/enjoyment of life
Additionally, if your loved one was killed in a drunk driving accident, you can file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for:
- Funeral/burial expenses
- Medical expenses related to final treatment
- Pain and suffering your loved one endured
- The value of support/household services your loved one provided
- Loss of companionship
- Mental and emotional distress
- Loss of future earnings/income
- Loss of expected inheritance
At Dismuke Law, we know that no amount of compensation could ever negate your loss; however, by bringing a claim, you can obtain a sense of justice and secure compensation to ease some of the financial burdens you and your family now face.
