Injured by a Drunk Driver? We Can Help.

Driving under the influence (DUI) occurs when a person’s blood alcohol level exceeds the state limits for operating a vehicle. These levels vary depending on age and vehicle type. For adults 21 years and over, the blood alcohol limit is 0.08 when driving a non-commercial vehicle. DUI charges can be brought against the driver by the state in a criminal prosecution, regardless of injury or accident. Civil suits can also be filed by individuals who were involved in DUI accidents due to the negligence of an impaired driver. These proceedings are designed to recover damages suffered by victims, punish DUI offenders, and protect the public from any future accidents.

There is no reason anyone should drive under the influence. If you or a loved one was injured due to the negligence of a driver in a DUI accident, Jenkins Utley, P.C. can help. Our Atlanta DUI accident attorneys are dedicated to pursuing these complex claims and advocating on your behalf.

Civil Cases for DUI Accidents

While criminal cases involving DUI may file various charges against defendants, they do not seek compensation for those who have been harmed, injured, or killed as a result of DUI. A civil lawsuit will attempt to recover damages.

It is your right to seek compensation and recover damages as a result of someone else’s negligence. DUI accident damages may result in compensation for:

  • Property and vehicles
  • Lost wages due to inability to work
  • Medical bills
  • Hospital bills
  • Future recovery costs
  • Pain and suffering

If you have been harmed or injured due to a DUI accident, it is important to seek legal counsel. Our Atlanta DUI accident lawyers can work to ensure a detailed investigation is done that establishes liability.

What to Do After You Are Hit by a Drunk Driver

There are some steps you can take that may prove necessary to your case:

  • Seek medical attention to acquire official records of injury
  • Receive a copy of the police report
  • Document damages to property or vehicles with photos
  • Receive witness testimony or contact information of witnesses
  • Document any other conditions that develop after initial treatment
  • Save receipts for all out-of-pocket expenses resultant from the accident
  • Never accept a settlement or advice from the other party’s insurance
  • Retain legal representation as soon as possible

We will work closely with you during the entire legal process, striving to resolve your claim in a timely and cost-effective manner while accurately and completely filing all necessary paperwork and requirements.
