What if the driver who hit me in Florida was drinking?
If the driver who hit you was drinking, it’s pretty much considered an aggravating circumstance. If they’re at fault regardless of whether they were drinking or not, they’re still negligent. They’re still at fault. However, when you add in the fact that they were drinking, it’s going to be an aggravating circumstance that could help us to lead to a greater recovery on your behalf, or to a jury awarding you a larger sum as a punishment against the defendant.
