Lonati Law Firm in Dallas, Georgia specializes in representing clients who have suffered injuries from accidents caused by drunk drivers.

Since 2011, the number of car accidents caused by drunk driving has spiked in Georgia.
 
In fact, in 2015, nearly 400 traffic accident deaths in Georgia were attributed to drunk driving. 
 
Additionally, Georgia ranks in the top 10 for traffic-related fatalities in the United States. 
 
Because DUI-related car accidents are on the rise, it's important to be prepared for the aftermath of a DUI accident injury. 

 

Filing Your Case in Georgia

It’s important to remember that while the criminal justice system can convict a person of drunk driving and impose punishments like jail time, the criminal court does not award financial damages to a drunk driver’s victims. 
 
The majority of the time, the drunk driver’s insurance company will offer a settlement to the driver’s victims to prevent the victim from pursuing a case in court. 
 
Unfortunately, insurance companies have one goal: to pay you as little as possible for your injuries. If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, his or her insurance company may offer you an extremely low settlement. 
 
Remember: you don’t have to take this settlement. You can meet with a DUI injury attorney and build a case against the drunk driver yourself. 

 

Proving the Driver Who Hit You Was Intoxicated

What information do you need to prove that a driver who hit you was drunk?
 
With the help of your DUI injury lawyer, you can subpoena certain records and information that help strengthen your case against a drunk driver:
  • Phone records (proving that the driver was talking on the phone or texting during the time of the accident
  • Breathalyzer, field sobriety, or lab blood tests proving intoxication at the time of the accident (a person can be charged with DUI/DWI without positive chemical testing). A person can be charged with a DUI with a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or higher. 
  • Police report of the accident
  • Video footage of the driver immediately following the accident
Georgia is a comparative liability state, meaning you can still recover damages for your accident, even if you were found to be partially to blame. 
 
Additionally, Georgia has a dram shop law
 
A dram shop law allows a victim of a drunk driver to hold a seller of alcohol (bar, liquor store, etc) liable for their injuries. If a bar, restaurant or liquor store sells alcohol to a minor or obviously intoxicated person, the store or restaurant can be held liable for the damages, injuries or deaths the intoxicated person causes when driving a motor vehicle.

What Does it Cost to Hire a Dallas, Georgia DUI Injury Attorney?

When someone else is to blame for your injuries, we don't think you should have to worry about how to pay for a lawyer. We will never ask you for upfront payment or hidden fees . You should have access to an attorney whenever you need one, and we don't want money to stand in the way of that.

   -  Our consultations are completely free of charge.

   -  Nothing is ever paid in advance or out of your own wallet.

   -  We don't get paid unless you do.

We only take a small percent of any money we recover for you if we successfully litigate your case. The rest is yours to keep!

An Insurance Company Has Already Offered Payment. What Should I Do?

Never take the first offer you receive! Before accepting any cash or signing any papers, always consult with a Dallas drunk driving injury lawyer to discover how much your case is worth.

Insurance companies may be tricky, and they routinely give settlement checks to injured people right away. Because most victims don't yet know how much their medical expenses and injuries will cost, the initial offer is generally a "low ball" attempt to take advantage of injured victims at their most vulnerable moments.

Avoid these traps! To protect your rights to additional compensation, seek the advice of a local DUI accident attorney during a free initial appointment.

What Evidence Do I Need to Get Money for My Drunk Driving Accident Injury Case?

When claiming damages, you must establish that the other person was responsible for your injuries. For this, you will need proof of their wrongdoing and evidence of your losses.


In the event of an DUI accident, the following actions should be taken:


  • Exchange information with the other driver
  • Notify the police at the scene of the accident and get an injury report
  • Injuries and other damages should be documented in photos
  • Get medical attention as soon as possible
  • Contact a Dallas drunk driving accident lawyer with expertise handling DUI cases

Who Is Liable for My Injury After a DUI Accident in Dallas, GA?

Georgia is an at-fault state, meaning the person or motorist who caused the accident is liable for the resulting damages. They must cover the victim's lost earnings, property damage, medical bills, and other accident-related expenses. Legally, these losses are called damages.

In most cases, the at-fault party's insurance carrier will cover the costs. Often, the insurance company fights this and pays much less than they should. Hiring a  Dallas DUI injury lawyer is essential to ensure your legal rights are protected.
