With the threat of punitive damages, we typically settle cases involving a DUI driver more quickly and for at least two times as much when compared to a non-DUI driver.
At 411 Justice LLC LLC the founding partners of the law firm began their legal careers as DUI prosecutors. Having this background and knowing the DUI laws, DUI judges, and DUI prosecutors allows us to fully represent our clients who were injured as a result of a DUI driver. We make sure to closely monitor the criminal case and ensure that your interests get noticed. Often times, a prosecutor does not act in the best interest of the victim and simply wants to resolve a case.
When we represent a client who was injured by a DUI driver, we make sure your interests are heard. As a victim in the state of Florida, you have rights. Click here for more information from Florida’s Victim’s Rights website.
You also have a right to be reimbursed by the DUI driver for any out of pocket expenses for deductibles, prescriptions, and rental car by the DUI driver as part of his punishment. We will go to court on your behalf to present these expenses to the judge and prosecutor and make sure the DUI driver is ordered to pay these expenses directly to our law firm. We make sure that the DUI driver is punished further if these expenses are not paid.
If the DUI driver has insurance that covers your pain and suffering, we will also make a claim for punitive damages. We have a tremendous amount of leverage when making a claim against a DUI driver. We will file a lawsuit and make a count for punitive damages if the insurance company is not willing to negotiate a fair settlement for our client. This causes the insurance company to panic and want to settle quickly.
