Drunk driving accidents cause thousands of injuries and fatalities each year. The victims of these accidents have the right to seek compensation for their injuries and losses.

We know how to build a strong case that will help you recover the maximum compensation allowed by Georgia law.

What Is Considered ‘Drunk Driving’ In Georgia?

In Georgia, a person is considered to be driving under the influence of alcohol if they have a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher. If a driver is below .08% but is still impaired due to alcohol consumption, they can still be charged with a DUI. Even if a driver is not formally charged with a DUI, an impaired driver who causes an accident can still be held responsible for causing damage in a crash.

Common Injuries In Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk drivers are responsible for thousands of injuries every year. Some of the most common injuries in drunk driving accidents include:

Some of these injuries can lead to lifelong disabilities, which can make it challenging to work and support yourself and your family. If you have been injured in a drunk driving accident, you shouldn’t have to worry about how you will make ends meet. Our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in serious and catastrophic car accidents. They also regularly deal with insurance companies and handle complex insurance disputes. They can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.

Compensation For Accident Injuries

The financial consequences of a drunk driving accident can be catastrophic. If you sustain injuries, it could hinder your ability to work and necessitate ongoing medical care. Additionally, you may experience a decline in earning capacity or even be unable to work at all, requiring reliance on disability benefits. The resulting financial burden from these setbacks can be overwhelming and deeply distressing.

Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium
  • Punitive damages

We will work to prove that the driver who caused your accident was negligent. If we can prove that they were intoxicated at the time of the accident, their negligence will be heightened. This means that you may be able to recover punitive damages to help cover the extra costs of your injuries.

Unfortunately, sometimes drunk driving accidents end in fatalities. If you lost a loved one because of an accident in which alcohol was involved, we can help you assess whether you are eligible for a wrongful death lawsuit.
