DUI and DWI Law
Similar to other states, Florida law prohibits the operation of a car or other motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration or level (BAC) of .08 or above. The state also increases possible jail time and fines for those convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) with a BAC of .20 or higher.
Florida DUI law is not restricted to alcohol levels. Motorists can be convicted of DUI (sometimes referred to as DWI for driving while intoxicated) if their driving ability was impaired by the use of drugs (both illegal and legal).

Dram Shop Liability
Florida alcohol liability laws fall under the Dram Shop Act. This state statute outlines the cases in which an establishment or individual can be held responsible for injuries caused by someone they provided with alcohol. In most Florida personal injury and wrongful death cases involving intoxication, the provider of the alcohol cannot be held liable. The main exception to this rule is when the establishment or individual provides alcohol to a minor or to a person with a known drinking problem. In such cases, liability on the part of the provider may exist. By reviewing the details of your drunk driving accident case, an attorney at our Bradenton firm can better assess which involved parties should be part of a lawsuit.
