Atlanta Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Drunk driving accidents are a common cause of injury and death in the Atlanta region

The Weinstein Firm injury attorneys have vast experience working with people who have been injured in all types of car accidents. By far the most disturbing are the ones caused by a drunk driver.

Drunk driving crashes are completely avoidable, and yet, they are one of the most common kinds of motor-vehicle accidents.

With our extensive experience helping people after drunk driving accidents, we have a huge advantage. We can help people understand what they will be dealing with throughout both the criminal and civil legal process. We know what needs to be done to deliver a complete, persuasive claim to the insurance company. We know how to effectively negotiate to obtain the highest possible settlement or verdict for clients.

How do the Weinstein drunk driving accident lawyers deliver successful drunk driving accident claims?

When someone is injured in a collision caused by a drunk or drugged driver, it is important to evaluate the extent of the injuries and other damages, to determine how the injuries will affect life now, and also down the road. Many injuries require expensive, long-term medical care, and our accident lawyers ensure that this cost is fully factored into the insurance-claim process. A successful claim is one in which an injured person receives a settlement that enables them to fully recover financially, and compensates them for all current and future losses.

Can a bar or tavern be held responsible for overserving a drunk driver? Yes.

Bars and taverns have a responsibility to serve alcohol in a safe manner, and can be held liable if their over-service results in an injury or fatality drunk driving collision. 

Can the probation department be held responsible when a parolee injures or kills someone in a drunk driving crash? Yes.

If a parolee, under supervision of a probation department, is not properly supervised and causes a drunk driving accident, the parole department can be held liable.

Can the police department be held responsible for not detaining a drunk driver who then injures or kills someone? Yes!

Our attorneys have helped people who were injured after a drunk driver was not jailed and was allowed access to a vehicle while still drunk, causing a drunk driving injury collision.

Drunk Driving Accidents happen all the time, all over the Atlanta Metro region:

Drunk driving is well understood to be one of the most dangerous driving behaviors, resulting in serious injuries and fatalities daily in Georgia and across the nation. Despite decades of high-quality public education programs like those from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drunk drivers continue to endanger the lives of innocent drivers and pedestrians every day.

MADD, the amazing organization that focuses on protecting families from drunk driving, drugged driving and underage drinking, recently held the first DUI Victim Symposium in Atlanta, which offered support for DUI victims and crash survivor families, primarily those currently involved in the criminal justice process or those whose offender was incarcerated. The symposium offered information for attendees related to victim compensation, the Memorial Sign Program, prosecution and prevention.

In March of 2016, the State of Georgia expanded its legislation regarding ignition interlock devices, thereby improving safety for the public. This new law allows any first-time DUI offender to use an ignition interlock device. Since statistics show clearly that most first time DUI offenders have driven drunk many times before being caught, this new law goes a long way toward keeping habitual drunk drivers off the streets. 

Studies show these devices can deter drunk drivers from driving. However, in Georgia, it takes a second DUI conviction for drunk drivers to be required to use an ignition interlock device.
