If you or someone you love has been the victim of one of the thousands of car accidents caused by drunk drivers each year, an Atlanta auto injury lawyer may be able to help by collecting the evidence you need to present a compelling case for your injuries in court. Doing so may allow you to collect the thousands of dollars in medical expenses, lost wages and other damages that you are entitled to.

If you have been injured by someone who chose to drive after having too much to drink, a car accident attorney in Atlanta may be able to help you get the financial compensation you need to pay for the expensive recovery costs of a drunk driving accident. Statistics show that thousands are injured each year, incurring millions of dollars worth of medical fees. 

Broken bones, like any other injury, can manifest in several different ways: 
  • Buckle fracture, in which one side of the bone is bent but doesn’t break, but the other side does;
  • Hairline fracture, in which a thin break appears that doesn’t fully separate bone fragments;
  • Single fracture, in which the bone is broken in a sole location;
  • Comminuted fracture, in which the bone breaks into several different, separated segments;
  • Incomplete fracture, in which the bone fragments are shoved into one another;
  • Complete fracture, in which the bone is broken fully into two pieces.
