Does My Car Insurance Cover Drunk Driving and Accidents to Non At-Fault Drivers?

The Miami Car Accident Lawyers at the Perazzo Law Firm are familiar with the inquiries commonly raised following car accidents involving intoxicated drivers in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Orange County.

Instances of drunk driving persist on the roads of cities worldwide, often leading to accidents resulting in personal injuries to innocent motorists and sometimes pedestrians. Tragically, such accidents can also result in fatalities, affecting not only other drivers but also passengers inside the vehicle being operated by an intoxicated driver.

Jonathan Perazzo, a personal injury attorney and founder of the Perazzo Law Firm, elucidates the intricate procedures of vehicle insurance post a drunk driving collision.

Primarily, it is crucial to establish fault in the accident. Although a driver may be intoxicated, it is imperative to determine if their actions directly caused the accident. For instance, a drunk driver may be stationary at a red light and be rear-ended by another driver who fails to notice the halted traffic due to distractions such as using their cellphone for texting or browsing.

Drunk driving constitutes a criminal offense. Intoxicated drivers may find their car insurance coverage invalidated if they are deemed responsible for the accident. In cases where drunk drivers are at fault, they may be unable to provide compensation to injured parties. Victims of accidents will require the expertise of an experienced car accident lawyer or a criminal attorney to navigate their case.
