Drunk driving in Florida results in hundreds of fatalities every year according to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV).

If you were hurt or you lost someone you love because of a drunk driver, a Miramar drunk driving car accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can handle your legal case and seek compensation to cover your losses.

- Medical bills
- Future medical costs
- Lost income and benefits
- Future lost income and benefits
- Child care

- Home services
- Pain and suffering

How Can a Miramar Drunk Driving Car Accident Lawyer Help You?
An advantage of hiring an attorney is that you are not alone; you have an advocate who will protect and fight for your best interests while you are at your most vulnerable.
You are a part of our family when you become a client. You can benefit from the many benefits of hiring our firm, including:
Investigate Your Case
We will investigate the accident by obtaining evidence such as police reports, medical records, traffic camera footage, photographs, blood test results, breathalyzer results, arrest records, witness statements, and expert opinions to strengthen your case.
Guide You Through the Legal Process
The legal process and insurance systems can be complex and frustrating to deal with, which is why we will guide you through the process and explain the system to you so you can understand how everything works. Peace of mind goes a long way for people who are dependent on a financial award for their future. We strive to provide that for you during every step.
Provide Supportive Resources
Founding partner Marc Anidjar has a special place in his heart for drunk driving victims and their families. That’s why we will offer you support from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), which can offer you educational and mental health resources. We can also help connect you to support groups in Broward County.
Calculate Your Claim
We will calculate the value of your claim so we can seek the compensation you deserve and determine if any initial settlement offers from the insurance company are fair.
Negotiate a Fair Settlement
We understand the ins and outs of the insurance system, so we will negotiate with the insurance company to reach a fair settlement that will adequately cover your losses and your future needs.
File a Civil Lawsuit and Prepare You for Court
We prepare every case for court if going to trial becomes necessary to secure compensation for you. We will represent you and prepare you for court.
We Work On a Contingency Fee Basis
You don’t pay us unless we win your case and you receive compensation. That’s what we mean when we say we work on a contingency-fee basis. You should not have to worry about the cost of an attorney at this time. Your lawyer will explain how payment works in more detail.
You might be hesitant to consult with an attorney because you worry about cost, but we offer free consultations so you can talk to us about your case without paying us a dime.
We believe in regular communication with our clients about their cases, so we will provide you with your lawyer’s phone number. We will return your calls or emails so you always have updates on the status of your case.

You Have a Limited Time to Act
We urge you to consult with an attorney if you or someone you love suffered injuries or due to the actions of a drunk driver. You only have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Florida according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a).
You have an even shorter amount of time to file a wrongful death lawsuit at just two years according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d).
Failure to heed these deadlines may result in you losing your right to file a lawsuit. We will work to meet these deadlines on your behalf so you retain your rights.
