While instances of drunk driving are on the decline across the United States (thanks to widespread education, stricter penalties, and the availability of ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft) about 30 people every day still die in a crash that was caused by an intoxicated driver. Florida’s rate of fatal crashes involving a drunk driver per 100,000 drivers is 9.4, which is higher than the national average of 8.2; this means if you live in Florida, especially if you live in a metropolitan and congested area or party city like St. Petersburg, you are at a higher risk of being injured in a drunk driving crash. No one should get behind the wheel drunk. It’s not only illegal, but negligent. If you’ve been injured, you can hold the driver or driver’s insurance company liable for the costs of the accident and be awarded monetary damages for your injuries.
Even though a drunk driver may clearly be at fault for the accident, insurance companies still may put up a fight when it comes to paying out claims. They are experts at finding loopholes or devaluing your injuries, because doing so protects their own financial interests. It can be exhausting to try to argue with them when you’re trying to heal, which is why you need an experienced, aggressive attorney who will stand up for you and negotiate a fair settlement. The Florida Law Group’s St. Petersburg drunk driving accident injury lawyers have won over $1 billion lawyers for accident victims around the state since 1984. We are not accustomed to letting you settle for less than what you deserve, even if that means going to trial! Call our St. Pete office today to schedule a FREE consultation and learn what your legal options are.
While you focus on recovering, we focus on recovering full damages! Filing a lawsuit can help you get the money you need to secure quality treatment.
Being struck by a drunk driver is an incredibly traumatic experience that could change your life forever, or at least significantly interrupt it. You may have to pay for ambulatory or air transport, ER care, hospitalization, surgeries, imaging tests like X-rays and MRI scans, physical therapy and rehabilitation, chiropractic care, medical devices, copays, deductibles, medications, counseling, and more, depending on the severity of your injuries. The incident may leave you permanently disabled, and you may require lifelong care. Your medical bills could add up to tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars that you have to pay out of pocket, and that’s without factoring in the lost wages you incurred from having to take time off of work.
You should not pay for something that was not your fault, when someone else’s illegal and reckless actions caused you so much hurt. That’s why drivers are required to carry insurance! However, a driver who chooses not to follow the law about drunk driving may also not obey the laws about having minimum coverage, and your insurance company may be unwilling to foot the bill. You have no negotiating power unless you have a lawyer on your side whom they’ll respect! Our St. Petersburg drunk driving accident injury lawyers know what tactics the insurance company will use to attempt to deny your claim, and we know how to answer those challenges. We are not intimidated by their large legal teams, and we have over 100 years of combined legal experience on our team!

About The Florida Law Group’s St. Petersburg Presence
In 2021, The Florida Law Group announced our new St. Petersburg office, one of our now 11 locations around the state!

St. Petersburg is a vibrant, highly populated party city (the 5th most crowded in the state), which makes the likelihood of encountering a drunk driver much higher than in other cities.
If you’ve been injured in a crash involving a drunk driver, there is a statute of limitations on all accident claims of this kind. Don’t wait to call our St. Petersburg drunk driving accident injury lawyers today to schedule a free consultation and discover how we can help!
