In an instant, your entire life can be changed by one person’s choice to drive after drinking too much at the bar. Although we are powerless over other people’s reckless decisions, there are certain steps that you can take with the help of an Atlanta auto injury lawyer that will help you pull your life back together after you’ve been the victim of a drunk driver car accident

However, there are also things you can do that might actually hurt your auto injury claim – specifically, things you can say. To get more information on how to protect your case, you should schedule a free consultation with an Atlanta car wreck lawyer. 

If a drunk driver causes a car accident that injures you, avoid saying any of the following: 
  • I’m not injured and I don’t need any medical treatment;
  • I’m not going to press charges; and
  • I don’t need a lawyer. 
These are 3 of the most common mistakes that injured DUI victims make – and they can also be the most damaging. What if you don’t realize that you’ve been injured until weeks after the accident? 

The medical costs of serious internal injuries or concussions can spiral into the hundreds of thousands, especially if treatment is delayed, but your case will be devalued by your reluctance to take action in the brief timeframe after the accident.

Don’t become a victim of the “system” – speak with an Atlanta auto injury lawyer about your drunk driver car accident and find out what you can do to protect your auto injury claim.

Contact an Atlanta Car Wreck Lawyer about Your Auto Injury Claim 

After a drunk driver car accident, you and your family may be dealing with the grief of serious injury, loss of a loved one, and financial burdens. During this difficult time it’s easy to get frustrated with your situation – you didn’t deserve to suffer due to the negligence of another!
