Have you been injured in a drunk driver accident?
Drunk driver accidents cause serious injuries. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), every 45 minutes someone is killed by a drunk driver. Driving while under the influence causes:
- Reduced coordination
- Slower reaction time
- Inability to concentrate
- Impaired night vision
- Decreased ability to determine one’s position on the road
- Lessened ability to make rational decisions and think clearly
In Georgia, driving with a blood alcohol level of .08% or higher means an individual is driving under the influence, or DUI. If a person is under the age of 21, driving with any detectable amount of alcohol is a crime, and that minor can be charged with DUI. Even though the penalties for DUI are strict, there are still many individuals of all ages who decide to drink and drive, causing severe injuries or wrongful death to others.
If you or someone you love has been harmed in a drunk driving accident, a competent lawyer will pursue damages on your behalf for your medical treatment, lost wages, disability, rehabilitation, and pain and suffering.
