Spring Break Binge Drinking Lead to Late Night Accidents
Spring Break is a time for parties, and most parties involve drinking. However, when teens and other party-goers drink too much and then attempt to drive home, they can end up having accidents on the road. Drinking any amount of alcohol can significantly impair your reflexes and ability to operate a motor vehicle, and even if you didn’t drink that night, a day of binge drinking during the day time and then trying to drive late at night can still find you significantly impaired on the road. Alcohol builds up in the system and can actually make it so that late night drivers who drank earlier in the day are more drunk than they were when they first consumed the alcoholic beverages.
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident due to Spring breakers who were drunk, then you might be entitled to compensation for your injuries. A Tampa personal injury attorney at Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore can help you if you were injured due to the spring breakers that were drunk and caused you injury due to their negligence.
The Tampa auto accident lawyers of Wagner, McLaughlin & Whittemore will evaluate the circumstances surrounding your case to assess whether you do indeed have a plausible personal injury claim. If you do, they have the skills and knowledge to file your claim and vigorously press your case, by either negotiating a favorable settlement for you before trial or taking your case to trial, depending on what the facts demand and what route is best for you. Rather than requiring upfront payment, your auto accident attorney would receive compensation in the form of a percentage of any monies awarded to you through settlement or after trial. The percentage owed to your attorney is set by rules of the Florida Supreme Court.
