In Georgia, a wrongful death refers to any death that occurs because of the wrongful act or negligence of another person or entity. A driver who recklessly chooses to get behind the wheel while under the influence of drugs is certainly behaving recklessly. However, in order to receive Georgia DUI wrongful death damages, you will have to prove that the driver’s actions directly caused your loved one’s death. A personal injury lawyer who specializes in drunk and drugged driving cases can help.
