DUI with Injury in Palm Beach

Accused of causing injury in a DUI accident?

It is often difficult to determine who is at fault for causing a car accident, because it is frequently true that both drivers share some degree of liability for the collision. Whether through speeding, unsafe lane changes or distracted behaviors including cell phone use, more than one driver involved in an accident could be partially responsible for the collision that resulted.
