If you have been injured by a drunk driver, contact Burnside Law Firm in Atlanta for experienced auto accident attorneys who can help you pursue a claim for general and punitive damages. Our Georgia lawyers carry over 30 years of experience, and they are passionate about helping individuals who have been injured in DUI accidents.

According to recent reports by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), the sobering reality is that up to 30 lives are tragically lost each day in the United States due to motor vehicle crashes involving an alcohol-impaired driver. This translates to a devastating statistic of one death every 51 minutes. Beyond the grim numbers, the repercussions of drunk driving are deeply concerning. It’s not just about the lives lost but also about the countless individuals who suffer life-altering injuries, families torn apart, and communities left to grapple with the aftermath.

Advocating for Victims’ Rights at Burnside Law Firm in Atlanta

Innocent lives are put at risk due to the irresponsible actions of those who choose to drive under the influence.

Our comprehensive approach to personal injury and wrongful death claims encompasses various forms of damages, including:

  • Medical Care: We recognize the significant impact that medical expenses can have on individuals and families affected by drunk driving accidents. From emergency room visits to ongoing rehabilitation and therapy, we diligently pursue compensation for all necessary medical treatments and expenses incurred as a result of the accident.
  • Lost Income: Serious injuries sustained in a drunk driving accident can result in temporary or permanent disability, preventing victims from returning to work and earning a living. Our attorneys skillfully calculate lost wages and future earning potential, seeking compensation to mitigate the financial hardships caused by a diminished capacity to work.
  • Pain and Suffering: The physical and emotional toll of a drunk driving accident can be immeasurable. We recognize the profound pain and suffering endured by victims and their families and advocate vigorously to secure compensation for their anguish, trauma, and diminished quality of life.
  • Catastrophic Injuries: In cases involving catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, or permanent disabilities, the long-term repercussions can be life-altering. Our attorneys possess the experience and resources necessary to pursue compensation that reflects the full extent of our client’s injuries and ensures they receive the comprehensive care and support they need.
  • Other Out-of-Pocket Expenses: Beyond medical expenses and lost income, victims of drunk driving accidents may incur various other out-of-pocket expenses, such as property damage, transportation costs and home modifications. We meticulously document these expenses and seek compensation to address all relevant financial losses incurred as a result of the accident.

At Burnside Law Firm, our mission is to provide compassionate and effective legal representation to victims of drunk driving accidents. We are committed to fighting tirelessly on behalf of our clients, advocating for their rights, and pursuing justice against those responsible for their injuries and losses.
