Drunk driving car accident cases are not like other car accident claims. Evidence from field sobriety tests, breathalyzer tests, and other police documentation at the time of the accident can help provide additional support that is not found in other cases. Mr. Grife can use this evidence to your advantage to help you prove the other driver was at fault.
In addition, there is the potential to recover punitive damages in a drunk driving car accident case. While this is not common in other car accident claims, punitive damages are often awarded in these situations to punish drunk drivers for their gross disregard of the safety of others. Mr. Grife will often attempt to recover punitive damages in order to help you maximize the value of your compensation.Experienced Boca Raton Car Accident Lawyer
