What if the driver who hit me in Florida was drinking?Return to FAQ Videos
Well that changes the case completely. It will expose that driver to punitive damages. That means that the judge or jury or whoever is looking at the case to help you resolve it can consider that fact and award higher damages for you, in some cases much higher damages because drinking and driving is obviously very dangerous and you see some are more horrific car accidents coming from drinking related matters. So it will expose that driver to higher damages.
