Who's At Fault?
Put Our Lecanto 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 Lecanto DUI victim attorneys will work for you to help ensure no blame is placed on you and you get the full compensation you deserve.
