Why didn't the Cops give a Breath Test to the guy who hit my Motorcycle and sent me to the Hospital? ~ Chosen as "Best Answer" by Asker on AVVO ~ Call Michael A. Haber, Esq. @ 1-888-SHARK-8-1

Q:     Why was he not breathalyzed or given citations?  Okay so I was in a motorcycle accident and the other driver was at fault. He pulled out of a men's club aka bar at 3 o clock in the afternoon. I was in the middle lane and he cut across 3 lanes of traffic into my path of travel and caused me to wreck. He was never breathalyzed or even given his citations at the scene. I was sitting in the hospital bed while he was on his way home.

Answered Please do not misinterpret my sarcasm... I am using it to make the point that you are you asking a bunch of cyber lawyers who were not there and are not cops to explain another human being's decision making process in an incident that we did not witness...

The fact is that I cannot even tell you with any degree of certainty what I am going to have for dinner tonight much less why a given cop chose to act in a given way at a given point in time.

My guess ("guess") is that the cop did not believe that there was any impairment issues involved in the accident. Perhaps the cop thought that it was an accident - you know, "an unplanned and spontaneous occurrence"...

If you think that the cop acted improperly then, when you are released from the hospital, go to the station and file a formal grievance (an internal affairs complaint).

And if you are truly aggrieved then consider hiring a lawyer to work for you. In Florida victims of crimes have rights, both constitutional (s. 16, Art. I of the Florida's State Constitution) and by statute (see: Chapter 960 Florida Statutes). Still, in Florida, the State Attorney is empowered to bring criminal charges to bear on behalf of all of the people of the State, the victim being only one of those millions of people (albeit usually an important one to the success of their case). If you want to increase your odds at having the State pursue your interests then you can hire your own criminal defense lawyer to serve as your Victim's Right's Advocate.

Again, no one can control what the State does on behalf of the people, but you will increase your odds at achieving a favorable outcome if you have an effective victim's rights advocate pursuing your agenda. Many criminal defense lawyers serve as effective victim's rights advocates.

Please take a look at my YouTube Webisode on Crime Victim's Rights in Florida. It supplements this answer with valuable information on the subject. For your convenience a link to the video follows:
