Did a drunk driver injure you?
Driving under the influence is against the law and could result in devastating injuries and wrongful death. A person who consumes alcohol or drugs and gets behind the wheel is risking both their life and your life. Drunk Driving gives rise to claims for personal injury when the person’s intoxication results in injuries and damages. You have legal rights and may be entitled to compensation if you are a victim of drunk driving.
You may be entitled to more than complete compensation if you have been injured by a drunk driver’s negligence. In many cases, the driver’s conduct is so egregious that it rises to the level of willful and wanton conduct. Under these circumstances, our civil justice system in Georgia provides victims with the right to pursue not only compensatory damages, but punitive damages as well.
An experienced trial attorney who represents injured victims on a daily basis can best evaluate all potential claims that may arise from a drunk driving accident. This even includes dram shop claims. This is where an establishment or individual continues serving an intoxicated person alcohol, knowing they will soon be driving. Let David Dekle evaluate your serious personal injury and wrongful death claim caused by a drunk driver. His experience as a former insurance defense lawyer gives him distinct advantage over many other trial attorneys.
