Q
My spouse was injured in an Atlanta drunk driving accident. The drunk driver had just left a bar; can I sue the bar?

A

Yes.  In Georgia, "Dram shop liability" holds businesses that serve alcohol accountable for the damages caused by their patrons. Under Georgia's liquor liability statutes, Georgia DWI victims may seek damages from a bar that served alcohol to someone who was clearly intoxicated.   To learn more, read Atlanta DUI injury attorney Shane Smith's article, "What is ‘Dram Shop Liability' and how can it affect my DUI injury claim?".
