Addressing The Tragic Aftermath Of Drunk Driving Accidents

Everyone in Georgia should be aware of the extreme dangers of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs by now. While some statistical progress has been made through public education and increased DUI/DWI penalties, the horrific decision to get behind the wheel when drunk is still far too common. In a typical year, deaths caused by alcohol-impaired drivers in Georgia alone number well into the hundreds.

We Seek Every Dollar Of Compensation Available For DUI Accident Victims

If you have been injured by an intoxicated driver — or if you have tragically lost a family member in a fatal crash — we are here to help in every way we can. Attorney Derek M. Hays has successfully handled numerous personal injury claims against drunk drivers and their insurers, including cases involving intoxicated drivers of huge commercial trucks. In fact, he co-authored a chapter in the best-selling book Consumer's Advocate on "The Mourning After: Helping Families Cope After A Drunk Driving Wreck."

Even if the drunk driver is charged and convicted, you may still face an uphill battle in getting fair compensation. Even after unspeakable tragedies such as drunk driving accidents, insurance companies protect profits. Depending on the circumstances of your case, we may strive to recover from any or all of these liable parties:

  • The intoxicated driver's insurance company — if he or she was injured — and your own insurer
  • A bar owner, restaurant owner, liquor store proprietor or social host whom we believe violated Georgia's Dram Shop Act by serving someone underage or already noticeably intoxicated
  • The offending driver if he or she has substantial personal assets
