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.

According to Georgia law, different parties may be held accountable in a DUI accident. These parties may include:

  • Bars, taverns, restaurants and clubs can be held responsible for serving alcohol to visibly impaired drivers (Georgia Dram Shop Act);
  • Bars, taverns, restaurants and clubs can be held responsible for serving alcohol to underage patrons (Georgia Dram Shop Act);
  • Passengers or companions who allow an intoxicated person to drive;
  • Companies that hire drivers who have histories of DUI violations.

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.
