West Palm Beach DUI Crash Injury Victim Attorney

Many DUI crash victims ask me: "Can an employer be held legal responsible for a DUI driver?"

The answer is "Yes." Under some circumstances, an employer can be held liable for the DUI driving of an employee. If the employer owns the vehicle being driven, a claim can be based upon that alone. Also, the employer is liable if the DUI driver causing the crash was “on the job” or coming from “work related entertainment” which caused the employee to be drug or alcohol impaired.

If it can be shown that the employer was negligent in hiring and retaining the DUI driver, you may even be able to get punitive damages against the employer. Proving that a DUI driver was “on the job” can be challenging. This, again, is an area where an attorney experienced in DUI crash cases can prove invaluable.

It is very important to always consult with an attorney before accepting any settlement from a bodily injury insurer on a DUI crash case. Insurance companies look out for their best interest, NOT YOURS! Any settlement you make before you are aware of who else may be liable for your injuries in addition to the DUI driver may  prejudice your rights to sue and recover additional compensatory and punitive damages.

Immediate family members can also seek justice when carelessness results in wrongful death of a loved one. The wrongful death does not have to be the result of a crime. Such damages can include loss of support and services as well as the mental pain and anguish of losing the loved one. However, the time limits to pursue such claims are short (most wrongful death claims must be brought in 2 year or less depending on the circumstances).

Mr. Asencio is a board certified civil trial lawyer who ONLY represents the victims of auto accidents and DUI crashes, and has NEVER represented DUI drivers for any reason. He has represented clients in all state and federal courts in Florida for more than 29 years in personal injury and wrongful death cases.

If you or a loved one requires professional legal services as an Auto Accident, DUI Crash, or Auto Related Wrongful Death Victim, be proactive in protecting your legal rights by seeking the legal advice of experienced legal counsel.
