DUI Cases in Crystal River, FL

More than 10,000 people are killed each year in drunk driving accidents across the United States and hundreds of thousands more are injured. Drunk drivers can face serious criminal and civil liability charges, but it can be tricky in no-fault states such as Florida so it helps to have an experienced personal injury attorney at your side.
 

Insurance Claims and No-Fault Laws

Florida requires all accident victims to first use their Personal Injury Protection (PIP) insurance to pay for expenses. If PIP isn't enough and injuries are serious enough, victims can pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

Civil vs. Criminal Cases

Most DUI cases go to criminal court to punish the driver and award the victim restitution. If restitution isn't ordered or is considered insufficient, DUI accident victims can sue the driver for damages in civil court to collect compensation.

Wrongful Death and Drunk Driving

If a DUI accident results in death, the next of kin can file a civil suit to collect damages. A fatality resulting from a DUI accident should be treated as a wrongful death case which Lowman Law Firm also handles in Crystal River.

No matter your situation, the knowledgeable and compassionate defense attorneys at Lowman Law Firm's Crystal River office are on your side.

Who's At Fault?

Put Our Crystal River DUI Accident Injury Lawyers On the Case!

 

While drunk drivers are typically 100% at fault in a crash, occasionally a court or jury may decide that each party shares part of the blame. This raises the question of who will pay for the damages, including injuries and medical expenses.  So, how could a drunk driver not be completely to blame? After all, getting behind the wheel in Florida with a .08 or greater Blood Alcohol Level is breaking the law before an accident even occurs. 

It’s possible that the drunk driver, though driving negligently, was not totally to blame for the accident. Consider the following: A sober driver runs a red light and hits a drunk driver who has the right of way. Even though the drunk driver should never have been on the road, the sober driver who ran the red light also broke a traffic law and caused the accident.

In a case such as this, the court or jury may assign a percentage of blame to each party. While they're most likely to consider the drunk driver 100% fault, they could potentially place partial blame on the DUI victim for running the red light. In this case, compensation for the victim could be less than expected.

At Lowman Law Firm, we believe the drunk driver should never have been on the road. Today, there's simply no excuse with the heightened awareness of drunk driving dangers and the availability of ride-sharing. So, our Crystal River DUI victim attorneys will work for you to help ensure no blame is placed on you and you get the full compensation you deserve.

Michael

Automobile Accident Case

Dealing with insurance companies is not a pleasant experience and I wanted a professional on my side. I met with Joe Lowman who explained the process to me and put me at ease with me realizing that I had a competent, capable and experienced team fighting for me. They navigated through getting my car fixed and countless medical appointments and kept me informed as things progressed. Joe Hill was awesome at taking the facts, communicating with the doctors offices and insurance companies and getting the best outcome possible. The outcome was greater than I thought was possible. This would not have been possible without the awesome work, skills and professionalism of Joe Hill. He is great and I will always recommend Lowman Law Firm. You guys are fantastic!
