Drunk driving is among the leading causes of accidents in Georgia and in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area. In many instances these accidents result in serious injury and death as a result of the negligence and reckless conduct of the drunk driver.
Drunk drivers have the destructive power to shatter and end the lives of innocent drivers, passengers and pedestrians. For those whose lives have been impacted by the reckless actions of a drunk driver, there are legal recourses available under Georgia law to compensate victims of injuries sustained as a result of drunk drivers. If you, a loved one, family member, friend, or someone close to you, has been injured in a collision with a drunk driver please contact William P. Evans immediately as a quick and thorough investigation to establish facts, contact witnesses, and preserve evidence can make a dramatic difference in the recovery obtained against the drunk driver and their insurance company.
Drunk driving accidents can result in serious and other catastrophic injuries. In many instances collisions with drunk drivers result in wrongful death.
In a drunk driving accident case, it is possible to recover not only compensatory damages (compensation for medical bills, wage loss and other losses), but punitive damages as well. Punitive damages are intended to punish the drunk driver and deter others from drunk driving. They can also substantially increase the awards to the injured party and to family members who have lost loved ones in drunk driving accidents.
