An Overview of Drunk Driving Accident Claims in GA
Injuries and fatalities stemming from drunk driving collisions are both tragic and infuriating due to their largely preventable nature. As a depressant, alcohol can significantly impair the body’s ability to process and react to sensory inputs – a skill which is imperative while driving. Alcohol intoxication can cause a driver to experience impaired vision, lowered reaction times, sleepiness, reduced situational awareness, and over-confidence while behind the wheel, thereby greatly increasing their chances of being involved in a car accident.
Under Georgia state law, drunk drivers can be held liable for any damages they should cause in the event of a collision, including:
- Medical expenses
- Vehicle repairs
- Lost present and future wages
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced quality of life
- Wrongful death
Likewise, under Georgia’s “dram shop” liability statute, alcohol-serving establishments and social hosts that unlawfully provide alcohol to an underage driver or negligently serve alcohol to a noticeably intoxicated adult may be held civilly and criminally liable for any damages their patrons or guests should cause. In particularly egregious cases in which there is clear and convincing evidence that shows a drunk driver’s actions showed willful, malicious, or wanton misconduct, victims may also be awarded punitive damages to deter others from engaging in the same conduct in the future. Our attorneys can review the circumstances surrounding your collision and provide you with a more accurate representation of your eligible compensation.
