When a drunk driver who had one too many at a party or the bar before getting behind the wheel causes a serious wreck that injures or kills another person they will face steep consequences. These consequences come in both a criminal trial and a civil trial.

The victims of Georgia drunk driving wrecks do not have to take action in the criminal trial, as the negligent driver is prosecuted by the state. However the civil trial, where you can earn financial compensation for your related costs, falls on your shoulders.

While you are technically allowed to represent yourself or your loved ones in a personal injury or wrongful death trial, it is highly recommended that you have the help of an expert. Here are 5 reasons you need to hire an attorney:

  1. They know what paperwork needs to be filed
  2. They know if a settlement deal is fair
  3. They know how to argue in front of a judge and jury
  4. They can stand up to the insurance companies
  5. They can earn you the compensation you deserve


The bottom-line is that an experienced lawyer gives you the best possible chance at earning the maximum amount of financial compensation that you deserve. A good lawyer can not only help you execute your claim, but also help you win your case.
