Drunk Driving Accidents
By: Tom Carey
Carey Leisure & Neal is known for our pursuit of claims for injuries, death and punitive damages by DUI victims.
Senior partner, Thomas W. Carey is the former State Chairman for Mothers against Drunk Driving (MADD). Thomas W. Carey lost his wife to a drunk driver and has committed over 30 years of practicing law to passionately fighting for the rights of those who have been injured or killed by someone who chose to drive under the influence. Thomas W. Carey is still active in his efforts to prevent drunk driving by supporting MADD and participating and sponsoring various events every year.
DUI accidents are not accidents at all. People who choose to become intoxicated by alcohol or other substances and get behind the wheel of a car should be held responsible for the injuries or deaths they cause. Florida law allows us to pursue punitive damages against DUI drivers. Punitive damages are meant to punish the DUI driver. Whenever possible, we aggressively fight for punitive damages on behalf of the victims of DUI victims.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a DUI driver, please contact us as soon as possible so we can begin gathering evidence to fight for your rights. Carey Leisure & Neal will aggressively fight to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, mental anguish, injuries, pain and suffering and funeral expenses. Carey Leisure & Neal will file a lawsuit against the DUI driver to recover compensation for you and to expose this dangerous and outrageous behavior.
In very few limited situations, the DUI victim might even be able to bring a case against the person or entity that served the DUI driver alcohol. This type of case is very rare and difficult to pursue due to Florida’s dram shop laws, which protect bars, liquor stores, and similar establishments from being held responsible for the injuries caused by the drivers to whom they had served alcohol.
However, at Carey Leisure & Neal, we have successfully overcome the dram shop laws in the past and we will investigate to determine if it’s possible in your case.
