Injured By A Drunk Driver? Know Your Rights Under Georgia Law.
Each day in this country many innocent victims are seriously injured by those who made the reckless and selfish choice to drive drunk. Those innocent victims are entitled to recover damages for the negligence of the driver who is impaired by drugs or alcohol. Georgia law allows for the full recovery of all damages and even allows for the recovery of exemplary or punitive damages for the at-fault driver’s willful and wanton disregard for the safety of other drivers.
If you are seeking compensation in a personal injury claim, you should know that the right attorney can make a major difference. When seeking a personal injury lawyer in Buford and throughout northern Georgia, The McGarity Group is an easy choice. Our attorneys have successfully handled many cases for victims and/or the families of people who were killed or severely injured as a result of impaired or drunk driving. We fight to maximize your compensation and hold the at-fault party or parties fully liable in civil court.
You May Also Have A Dram Shop Law Claim
The drunk driver may not be the only liable party in your case. Commonly referred to as Georgia’s “dram shop law,” O.C.G.A §51-1-40 allows the victim of a drunk driving accident to sue a restaurant or bar if they knowingly served alcohol to a person who was impaired or intoxicated in the restaurant or bar and the server had reason to believe that the person would soon get behind the wheel. Our firm has had great success handling these types of cases. Two of our attorneys are former felony prosecutors and have experience handling felony vehicular homicide cases or other felony cases involving drugs and/or alcohol. This trial experience gives our team a valuable advantage in handling both drunk driving cases and/or dram shop cases.
