Drunk Driver Accidents

Drunk Driver Hip InjuryAlthough we have made great progress in our battle against drunk driving and drunk driver accidents in Florida, there are far too many injuries and deaths on our streets and highways. Florida ranks third behind Texas and California every year in total number of drunk driving accidents, and Orlando drunk driving accident attorney James O. Cunningham sees firsthand the damage that drunk drivers inflict on innocent people. While helping people is central to his law practice, he and other Central Florida drunk driving accident lawyers are far busier than they would like to be with these types of cases. Drunk drivers know that what they are doing is illegal, morally wrong and that it needlessly puts others at risk. Yet, they continue to engage in this egregiously negligent behavior by drinking and driving.

Florida Drunk Driver Accidents 2016 to 2020

Florida Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer Helping Victims and Families

In 2008, 1,041 people died and thousands more experienced injuries in alcohol-related auto accidents in Florida. While tragic, these fatalities don’t effectively illustrate the scope of Florida’s drunk driving problems. Consider that there were 34,638 drunk driving convictions in Florida in 2006. That number represented an eight percent drop from convictions in 2005. However, when you consider that not all drunk driving arrests result in convictions, it is easy to see that drunk driving is a very serious problem in Florida. When a drunk driver kills another person, the victim’s family must contend with the following:

  • Burial expenses
  • Loss of companionship and support
  • Loss of income
  • Medical bills
  • The anguish of knowing that the death was completely preventable
  • Many other types of emotional and financial hardship

In addition, people injured in drunk driving accidents must endure hardships such as lost wages, catastrophic medical bills, diminished function and quality of life, disabilities and many other physical, emotional and financial injuries.
