Georgia Injury Attorneys
With over 10,000 alcohol impaired driving deaths yearly, amounting to one crash every 53 minutes, it is conclusive to say that alcohol-impaired driving is the most frequently committed violent crime in the United States.
In the state of Georgia, which is the 9th toughest on DUI-related arrests, victims can recover punitive damages from drunk drivers in addition to compensatory damages. A driver convicted of DUI has the liability to pay for all damages, but may not be the only person considered negligent or liable. In some circumstances, hosts of the party or the bar and restaurant owners and employees who continued to serve alcohol to the driver who appeared intoxicated, may also be held liable.
If you or someone you know has incurred bodily injury in an accident involving an intoxicated driver, you have the right to recover compensation from those responsible for the harm they have caused.
