In spite of stringent laws, the advent of designated driver, and millions spent on prevention programs, driving under the influence remains a serious problem. Every year, drunk drivers are responsible for thousands of serious injuries and deaths. Victims of drunk driving injuries are often left with extraordinary medical expenses and a lengthy rehabilitation period in addition to the emotional trauma they’ve experienced.
If you were seriously injured due to a drunk driver’s negligence, you may be able to sue for damages. The Atlanta auto accident lawyers at Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP are here to help you fight for the compensation you deserve. We have an outstanding reputation for recovering damages on behalf of accident victims.
Your settlement will include compensation for the:
- Ambulance ride
- E.R. visit and hospital expenses
- Hospital expenses
- Tests, treatments, and surgeries
- Medical equipment (such as wheelchairs or walkers),
- Future medical expenses
- Reconstructive surgeries
- Loss of wages and loss of earning potential
- Pain and suffering
If you lost a loved one to a drunk driving accident, you most likely have a wrongful death case, which also entitles you to sue for damages.
The Dram Shop Act and Overserving
At Moraitakis & Kushel, LLP, we are well-versed in Georgia’s alcohol regulations and liquor liability laws, which will come into play in the course of your case.
Under Georgia law, if a patron at any bar, nightclub or restaurant is visibly intoxicated and the bartender or server continues to serve alcohol with the knowledge that the patron will be driving, the establishment has a share in the legal liability if that patron gets behind the wheel and hits someone.
As we investigate your case, we will carefully evaluate your circumstances to determine if an establishment is liable and if you are entitled to file a lawsuit against the owner as well.
