Fatal Drunk Driving Accidents
Wrongful Death in DUI Accidents
Florida traffic crash statistics provided by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV) show that 794 individuals died in alcohol-related crashes in 2010. That numbers is more than 30% of the total 2,444 car accident fatalities in the state that year. These statistics only go to prove the danger and recklessness of driving while drunk. At the Law Offices of Carey Leisure & Leisure, we are long-time advocates against drunk driving and have a personal connection with the tragedies involved.
In 1983, founding attorney Thomas W. Carey lost his wife of only seven months to a drunk driving accident. Since then, he has been heavily involved with Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) and co-founded Remove Intoxicated Drivers (RID) in Tampa Bay. Our firm itself shares the same level of dedication to advocacy and the protection of innocent accident victims across the state of Florida. If you or someone you love has been injured or killed by an intoxicated driver, our team is on your side and has the knowledge and skill to recover your damages, including punitive damages. You and your family should not have to suffer physically or financially because of the reckless negligence of a drunk driver.
