Finding All Possible Sources Of Compensation In A DUI Injury Claim

One of the most important things an experienced personal injury attorney can do is locate every potentially liable party. In drunk driving accidents, it may be possible to bring a claim against a bar, restaurant or other establishment that served alcohol to the drunk driver. Under Georgia's dram shop law, an employee at a bar, restaurant or liquor store or even a host at a party may be liable if he or she knowingly served someone who was intoxicated and knew this person would soon be driving.

At The Sams Law Firm, we will look closely at all of the evidence to see whether we can bring a dram shop claim in addition to a claim against the drunk driver. Under Georgia law, it is also possible to seek punitive damages against a drunk driver. Punitive damages are intended to punish drunk drivers and deter future misconduct and can be awarded in addition to damages for medical bills, lost income and other expenses. However your case proceeds, you can be confident that we will do everything in our power to help you through this difficult time.
