When you or a loved one have been seriously hurt in a Florida traffic accident, you may feel as though your world has turned upside down. Negligent drivers are very prevalent on our roadways and driving while impaired is one of the most serious and dangerous forms of negligent driving behavior that can occur. Unfortunately, many motorists still choose to get behind the wheel after having too much to drink and, as a result, cause damage to the lives of innocent individuals.
