DUI and Drunk Driver Accidents

Driving Under The Influence Causes Serious Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents involving drunk drivers are often more serious than those affecting nonintoxicated drivers. At the scene of the crash, drunk drivers can often be belligerent and unaware of the damage they have caused. Victims are often shaken and understandably upset by the actions of the drunk driver who caused the accident.Moreover, these situations are the best-case scenario. Often, the auto accident is so severe that those involved suffer serious injuries or die at the scene. When a car accident caused by a drunk driver occurs, it is essential to contact a qualified lawyer as soon as possible. We can help protect your rights and fulfill your entitlement to compensation.

Over 60 Years Of Combined Experience Helping Victims In Northeast Florida

At Canan Law, we understand the extreme emotional and physical toll of a drunk driving accident. Our attorneys have over 60 years of combined legal experience dealing with complicated auto accident cases in St. Augustine, St. Johns County, Northeast Florida and on I-95.

We know what needs to be done, whom to talk to get results and how to help you get your life back on track. Our lawyers often:

  • Negotiate with the insurance company: When negotiations fail to produce a satisfactory settlement offer, we can file a claim against the drunk driver’s car insurance carrier demanding full compensation for the losses and injuries you sustained as a result of the collision.
  • Leverage the driver’s DUI conviction: If the drunk driver is convicted of a crime or leaves the accident scene, this can be used to leverage a better outcome in your civil suit for damages.
  • File a wrongful death suit: If the drunk driving accident resulted in a fatality, we might be able to help recover compensation on behalf of your loved one.
  • Pursue compensation through your policy: If the drunk driver does not have automobile insurance coverage, we can help you obtain coverage under a specific provision of your plan.
  • Seek punitive or “punishment” damages: for a drunk driver who negligently and recklessly causes an accident resulting in bodily injury.
