To answer the first question: even when drunk driving, liability is not black and white. Florida's purely comparative liability, also known as "shared liability," says that more than one party can be to blame for many types of accidents. You may not be able to make yourself liable in a civil case, but you will certainly be punished legally as a drunk driver.
To understand what "negligence" means, you must also have a firm grasp of the terms "duty of care" and "appropriate care for others." That is, act with reasonable care for others, and a reasonable person would exercise care in a similar situation.
As you can see, not every injury is as simple as it seems at first glance, but with so much at stake, don't leave this delicate and vital matter to yourself.
Millions of road accidents occur every year, including serious injuries caused by excessive driving, drink driving and other dangerous driving.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were 192,945 deaths from injuries in the United States in 2014, and there are 2.5 million medically treated injuries from poisoning. According to the CDC, the average cost of a fall for an elderly person is $35,000. According to a report by the National Institutes of Health, elderly falls alone will cost the US $67.7 billion by 2020.
Falls cause thousands of deaths and millions of injuries each year, and are the cause of lost productivity, lost health care, and other economic costs.
