DUI & Drug Related Accidents
Impaired Drivers endanger others
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Mothers Against Drunk Driving, last year, about 27 percent (441 deaths) of fatal accidents involved a driver who was legally intoxicated (blood-alcohol content of .08). Each year, more than 13,000 Americans die in alcohol-related crashes, and nearly 500,000 more suffer injuries. It is estimated that three out of 10 people will be involved in an alcohol-related accident in their lifetime. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children 2 to 14 years old, and about 20 percent of those deaths are alcohol-related.

Get the compensation you deserve. Make them accountable.
DUI and drug related accidents involve complex legal issues. If the driver was obviously intoxicated and served more alcohol by an establishment with a liquor license, that business can be held liable under “dram shop” laws for resulting injury or death to a third party. Likewise, if the driver was furnished alcohol or drugs at a private party, the homeowner may have personal liability under Georgia’s social host law. When an adult provides drugs or alcohol to a minor and that minor injures or kills someone, they too are liable for the consequences.
