Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk Driver Hit & Run Resulting in Non Surgical Herniated Disks – $794,220.65 Verdict for Compensatory & Punitive Damages (pre-trial offer of $60,000)

Plaintiff, a 45-year-old black female, and her two passengers were traveling on I-95 when they were struck in the rear by another vehicle, spun around and slammed into a guardrail. They watched in horror as the other driver drove off without regard for the injured. Fortunately, some good samaritans followed the hit and run drunk driver and identified her to authorities. Unfortunately, the Florida criminal system did nothing other than temporarily suspend the impaired driver’s license. Howard Butler of Ossi, Butler, Najem & Rosario conducted a comprehensive out of state investigation which revealed that the Defendant had been involved in prior collisions while impaired and had fled the scene on a prior occasion. Howard Butler, Esquire traveled to South Carolina and deposed witnesses, victims, and authorities for use at trial in Florida and ultimately obtained a verdict ten times the previous offer.
