When someone makes the decision to drink or use drugs and then get behind the wheel, they not only put themselves at risk, but other lives as well. Tragically, they often cause serious injury to victims and their families. These accidents can be avoided entirely if those who drink would make the right decision to let someone else drive them. If you have been injured in a wreck caused by a drunk driver, you should immediately seek the advice of an experienced Atlanta attorney from the W. Winston Briggs Law Firm.
If you are the victim of a car crash due to another driver operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you have the right to obtain compensation for your injuries. This includes:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Funeral costs
- Pain and suffering
Drunk drivers have to answer to the authorities for the DUI offense, but they also have to answer to their victims. And the law is on your side. Georgia law does not favor drivers who have made the choice to get behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Typically, there is clear proof from the wreck that the driver was under the influence, often a charge of DUI or a drug offense. This means that victims sometimes receive larger settlements as well as punitive damages.
The W. Winston Briggs Law Firm provides strong representation to clients in Atlanta who have suffered serious injuries after being involved in a crash where the negligent driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
