Georgia Drunk Driving Accident Claims Lawyers
According to a 2005 study by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), 16,885 people were killed in alcohol-related auto accidents in 2005. That means that every 31 minutes, a person is killed in a drunk driving accident. In that same study, it is reported that 254,000 people were injured in a drunk driving accident. That equates to one drunk driving-related injury every two minutes. Unfortunately, the number of auto accidents in the United States caused by drunk drivers every year is astonishing. 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.

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.
