Drunk Driving Accident Lawsuits Lawyer

Even with strict drinking and driving laws throughout the country, irresponsible drivers still get behind the wheel and cause injuries and fatalities. In 2016, 28% of auto-accident fatalities were alcohol-related accidents, with 10,497 deaths. When you or a loved one suffer an injury or you lose a loved one during a vehicle accident caused by a drunk driver, you may have legal options to pursue compensation for medical expenses, income losses and other damages.

In Georgia, anyone with a BAC of .08% or greater that drives a vehicle is breaking the law. Not only can drunk drivers face the consequences of a DUI, if they are involved in an injury accident, they may be held liable for injuries. Georgia lawmakers also allow victims of drunk driving accidents to pursue punitive damages in some cases. This means the driver may be liable for injury expenses and additional punitive damages as a deterrent.

Liable Third-Parties in DUI Accidents

When a drunk driver causes an injury or fatality accident, it is not just the driver that can be held liable in Georgia. Third-party entities may be liable if they contributed to the intoxication of the driver. Dram shops, like bars and liquor stores, that sell alcohol to intoxicated or under-age drivers may be liable for DUI accident injuries caused by their customer. Social hosts that over-serve alcohol to drivers may also be liable. Another third-party that can be liable in drunk driving injury accidents is the owner of the DUI vehicle if they knew the driver was intoxicated when they allowed them to drive their vehicle.
