Property Damage Top-Rated Legal Counsel

Miami Property Damage Attorneys

Property Damage Lawyer Protecting Your Rights, Freedom, & Best Interests

Motor vehicle accidents happen for a wide variety of reasons, some of which have nothing to do with criminal violations. For example, minor traffic violations such as speeding, failure to yield, following too closely, or running a stop sign can often result in accidents and may result in the person who caused the accident to get a ticket. In these cases, the violation often results in civil liability for the person who violated the law and a relatively small civil penalty – but no criminal liability.

However, in some cases, an accident causing property damage can be the result of serious criminal violations. When this occurs, the person who caused the accident is subject to significant criminal penalties including fines, probation, restitution, and even jail time. For this reason, it is important for anyone accused of a crime related to a traffic crash to call a Miami property damage lawyer as soon as possible.

Two serious criminal offenses that can result in accidents causing property damage are described below.

Driving Under The Influence of Alcohol (DUI)

Drunk driving is a serious offense in the state of Florida, and even a first offense has the potential to result in significant consequences. There are certain aggravating circumstances that can make the penalties that you are facing more severe, including involvement in an accident that results in property damage. Generally speaking, this offense involves a situation in which a drunk driver is involved in an accident with another car but can also occur if a drunk driver crashes into a building or damages real property.

Some of the penalties a judge may impose for a DUI involving property damage include the following:

  • Up to 1 year in jail; and
  • Fines of not more than $1,000
