Help for Fourth of July DUI Accident Victims in Georgia

Statistics indicate that the Fourth of July is one of the most dangerous times to be on the road due to drunk drivers. On July 4, 2010, 392 people were killed in traffic accidents nationwide, and 39 percent of those deaths involved drunk driving. This is because people leave holiday festivities, backyard parties, restaurants, and bars drunk and get behind the wheel of their cars to drive home. 

If police officers don’t catch the drunk drivers in time, they may cause crashes and injuries to DUI victims in Atlanta. The Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety has indicated an estimated one-third of all Georgia traffic fatalities are related to impaired-driving deaths. Because of this high death rate of DUI victims, law enforcement participated in Operation Zero Tolerance over the Fourth of July weekend. 

Though the goal of this operation is to get drunk drivers off of Georgia roads, there are only so many police officers on patrol, and they cannot catch every intoxicated driver. Unfortunately, innocent drivers, passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists have suffered from reckless and careless actions of drunk drivers.

If you were injured or if you lost a family member in a July Fourth wreck due to a drunk driver, you have rights as a Georgia DUI accident victim. For more information about your rights, call the Law Offices of Shane Smith and talk to a skilled Fulton County accident attorney today at 770-HURT-999. Just for calling, we will offer you a complimentary and confidential case consultation.
