Georgia's Dram Shop Laws Can Help DUI Accident Victims

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

Georgia's Dram Shop Act provides that a person who sells, furnishes, or serves alcohol to an intoxicated person of lawful drinking age shall be liable for injury, death, or damage the person causes because of their intoxication. The Dram Shop Act also holds that someone may become liable if they knowingly sell alcohol to a noticeably intoxicated person when they know that person will soon be driving. The law is intended to prevent bars and restaurants from selling alcohol to minors and people who are visibly intoxicated.

If you have questions about Georgia DUI laws, get the answers in Clayton County DUI injury attorney Shane Smith's book, I Was Hit By a Drunk Driver: What Do I Do Next? Contact the Law Offices of Shane Smith to schedule a free legal consultation.
