Drunk drivers risk life and limb every time they get behind the wheel. Unfortunately, all too often it is not themselves they hurt. DUI accidents can cause serious injuries to other drivers, passengers, and even bystanders near the road. Drunk Driving accident victims facing a sudden change in their futures may feel helpless, like they did nothing wrong and there is no way to get their lives back. They need legal advice to get compensation for their hurt and loss.

Drunk driving is illegal in Georgia, and across the country. That doesn’t stop the nearly 20,000 drivers who are convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) every year. Drivers under the influence of alcohol or drugs are far more likely than sober drivers to cause an accident. Their reaction times are slowed and their judgment is affected, making them a danger to everyone on the road. The accidents they cause are often at higher speeds and result in more serious injuries than other motor vehicle accidents.
If there is a silver lining to be found in a drunk driving accident, it is that the police will do some of the work for you to prove who was at fault for the accident. Georgia personal injury law is based on negligence. That means compensation depends on showing that the other driver failed to take reasonable care while operating their vehicle. That includes driving under the influence. On-site breathalyzers and sobriety tests can be used to show that the other driver was drunk behind the wheel. If they are convicted of DUI, that conviction can prove negligence as well.
