Georgia Drunk Driving Accident Claims Lawyers

According to a sobering 2005 study conducted by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), the devastating toll of alcohol-related auto accidents was glaringly apparent. Shockingly, the study revealed that a staggering 16,885 individuals lost their lives in alcohol-related crashes that year alone. To put this harrowing statistic into perspective, it signifies that, on average, a precious life was snuffed out in a drunk driving accident every 31 minutes, underscoring the relentless frequency of these tragedies. Furthermore, the study also shed light on the profound extent of injuries inflicted by drunk drivers, with a reported 254,000 individuals suffering injuries in alcohol-related crashes. This translates to an alarming rate of one drunk driving-related injury occurring approximately every two minutes across the nation. These figures paint a grim portrait of the human cost exacted by impaired driving, emphasizing the urgent need for comprehensive measures to combat this pervasive menace on our roadways. Regrettably, despite concerted efforts to curb drunk driving, the prevalence of such accidents remains astonishingly high, perpetuating a cycle of devastation and heartache for countless individuals and families each year.

If you have been injured by a drunk driver, contact an experienced auto accident attorney to find out more about your right to pursue a claim for general and punitive damages. At the Augusta, Georgia, law firm of Burnside Law Firm, we represent people in Atlanta, Augusta, Athens and throughout Georgia who have been injured on account of drunk drivers. To speak to an attorney about your accident claim, contact us to schedule a free initial consultation.

Holding Drunk Drivers Liable for Your Injuries

It is a fact that most people view drunk drivers with particular disdain. Consequently, juries are typically more willing to hold drunk drivers liable for your out-of-pocket expenses and other losses. They are also more likely to award punitive damages in order to deter the at fault driver from driving drunk again in the future.

Our firm concentrates on holding reckless drivers liable for the injuries they cause. We will file a personal injury or wrongful death claim on your behalf in order to get you financial help covering your:

  • Catastrophic Injuries: From traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord damage to severe burns and limb amputations, we understand the profound impact that catastrophic injuries can have on your life. Our goal is to secure compensation to cover the extensive medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and long-term care associated with these injuries.
  • Dram Shop Liability: In cases where an establishment negligently served alcohol to an already intoxicated individual who later caused an accident, we will explore the possibility of holding the establishment accountable for its role in contributing to the harm suffered by our client.
  • Lost Income: If you have been unable to work due to your injuries, we will pursue compensation for the income you have lost, as well as any future earning capacity diminished by your injuries.
  • Medical Care: From emergency room treatment and surgeries to ongoing medical appointments and therapies, we will seek compensation for the full extent of your medical expenses, ensuring you receive the care you need to recover and heal.
  • Pain and Suffering: We recognize that the physical pain, emotional trauma, and psychological anguish caused by a serious accident can be profound. Our team will fight tirelessly to secure compensation for your pain and suffering, providing you with the support and resources you need to cope with the aftermath of the accident.
  • Other Out-of-Pocket Expenses: From vehicle repairs and transportation costs to home modifications and assistive devices, we will seek reimbursement for any out-of-pocket expenses you have incurred as a result of the accident.

By meticulously documenting your losses and aggressively advocating on your behalf, we will strive to secure the maximum compensation possible, allowing you to focus on your recovery and move forward with your life. When you choose our firm, you can rest assured that you have a dedicated team of legal professionals fighting for your rights and best interests every step of the way.
