Sarasota Woman Convicted of DUI Following Crash During 10K Race

For victims of auto accidents caused by drunk drivers, pursuing a personal injury claim against the negligent driver is not only a matter of seeking compensation but also holding them accountable for their reckless actions. Crashes caused by impaired drivers are entirely preventable, yet they continue to plague our roads, causing serious injuries and deaths. A DWI-related accident can happen anywhere at any time, as some runners in Bradenton recently learned. 

As a 10K race was being held on the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, an impaired motorist, Kristen Watts, slammed through a barricade and hit a police officer’s car head-on. Watts was eventually convicted of her crime and sentenced to 10 years in prison. Though if someone is injured by an intoxicated driver, even a tough criminal sentence won’t help them recover.

Victims of drunk driving accidents may suffer from a range of medical problems, including whiplash, broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord damage and more. A motorist who is unable to perceive or react might not even slow down before impact, increasing the severity of the harm. These injuries can result in significant medical expenses, lost wages and long-term rehabilitation needs. Our team is dedicated to helping our clients recover compensation they are entitled to for the harm they’ve endured.  

When pursuing a personal injury claim against a drunk driver, it's essential to gather evidence to establish liability and prove the extent of damages. This may include police reports, eyewitness testimonies from others who saw the defendant drinking, blood test results, medical records and expert opinions. Our attorneys have the knowledge and resources to thoroughly investigate each case, building a strong legal strategy aimed at securing maximum compensation for our clients.

The Florida auto accident attorneys at Goldman, Babboni, Fernandez, Murphy & Walsh recognize the importance of holding drunk drivers accountable for the harm they cause.
