While other Tampa lawyers claim to sue drunk drivers for causing injuries to others, our firm really does sue them even when they do not have insurance. Not many law firms can say that. For us, it is a matter of principle.
What happens when we do sue them and they do not have insurance? If we obtain a judgment against the drunk driver, we send the judgment to Tallahassee DMV and request DMV to suspend the drunk driver’s license. DMV will then suspend the driver’s license for up to 20 years or until they pay the victim. While the State of Florida in the criminal proceeding only suspends their driver’s license for 6 months, the victim suspended the license for 20 years. A small victory for the victim.

In 2015 alone, we have done this 4 times and twice the drunk paid the claim personally.
If you have been injured in a car accident call a Tampa Attorney who can help you in your time of need.
