Drunk driving is one of the foremost causes of automobile accidents in the U.S. On an annual basis, in excess of 500,000 Americans get injured in DUI accidents. DUI (Driving Under the Influence) & DWI (Driving While Intoxicated) describe alcohol-related offenses and almost one third of all traffic deaths in the country are caused by these offenses. According to the National Department of Transportation, in most instances, these drivers are also repeat offenders. Almost 34% of these accidents are committed by people in the 21-25 age group.
DUI attorneys in Miami from The Soffer Firm ensure that you or your loved one are well-represented for the injuries you have suffered.
A person who causes a crash while at the wheel and is driving under the influence, is considered negligent. Unfortunately, this is of no comfort to anyone who has suffered a personal loss due to a drunk driver. Though the victims may have a right to significant compensation, it can never make up for all the physical and emotional costs the person endures.
