All auto accidents are traumatic; even more so when a driver is intoxicated behind the wheel of a 2 ton automobile. If a driver under the influence causes an accident, that driver is said to have engaged in reckless conduct. For that reason, there may be additional punitive damages that are recoverable for the injured parties.
Furthermore, the victim may have compensation made available through the criminal courts or a state-funded victims’ fund. It is essential to consult with one of Jeffrey M. Byrd P.A.’s aggressive Orlando DUI / DWI accident attorneys before speaking to an insurance company.
