Boca Raton Woman Charged With DUI During Trick-Or-Treat
Boca Raton resident Annlyn Riggs of Tudor Drive has been charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI), DUI damage property, and hit and run — leaving the scene of an accident. She was arrested by FHP while drinking and driving and was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail before being released a few hours later. The worst part about this particular DUI? It occurred during peak trick-or-treating time on Halloween night, as nearly all of the area’s young children went out in costume and walked from house to house in our neighborhoods. Although it appears as though Riggs caused only minor damage and police were able to apprehend her before she went too much further, we shudder to think at the damage that could have been done as a result of her irresponsible behavior. As surprising as this type of behavior may be to most of us, the sad reality of our modern culture is that negligent and reckless drivers cause serious car and truck wrecks in Boca Raton FL every day. Further, the innocent people who are injured or affected by these accidents are the ones who live with the physical and emotional scars for many years into the future. The nature of many Florida car accidents are simply unfair. However, if you or a loved one has been involved in a car crash caused by a negligent driver, and sustained serious injuries as a result, you may be able to take action. By filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person who caused your wreck, you may be able to earn financial compensation for your medical bills, ongoing care, lost wages from missed time at work, and more. This compensation can come from either a settlement or jury verdict. If you want the best possible chance of getting the full amount of financial compensation you deserve from the insurance companies, call the Boca Raton FL personal injury lawyers of the Broderick Law Firm today and schedule a free consultation.
