Have You Been in an Accident Caused by a Drunk Driver?
Drunk drivers account for a huge percentage of the total car accidents that happen each year in the United States. Driving under the influence is an issue that has remained prevalent throughout the years despite the increasingly strict laws against it. If you are injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, it is important to bring charges against the driver, not only for your own benefit, but for the safety of others. People who drive drunk are likely to have done it in the past and are also likely to continue driving while under the influence until they are stopped.
Understanding Georgia’s Dram Shop Laws
There are 38 states that recognize Dram Shop Laws, and Georgia is one of these states. Dram Shop Laws hold parties, such as establishments and the servers or bartenders they employee, responsible for serving alcohol to minors or obviously intoxicated patrons who cause car accidents after leaving their premises. In these situations, injured parties may make claims against both the driver and the establishment that knowingly supplied alcohol to a minor or an obviously intoxicated individual.
