Steps in a DUI Injury Claim after an Accident with a Drunk Driver in Georgia (Part B)

When you’ve been injured in a car accident with a drunk driver, your first thought is likely about a potential DUI injury claim – “How do I go about filing a lawsuit?”

You need your medical costs covered, your vehicle repaired, your lost wages to pay your bills – all of these things can be accomplished through pursuing an injury claim with an Atlanta car wreck lawyer

In order to get the reward you deserve, however, you need to take the proper preparatory steps to do so. After leaving the scene of the accident, you should first seek medical treatment. 

Even if you have no injuries that need immediate stabilization, you should immediately go see a doctor or get checked out at a nearby hospital. Doing so will create a medical record of all of your injuries, which your attorney will use to document the impact of the accident on your physical livelihood. If you don’t have some kind of reliable evidence or proof to demonstrate your injuries, you’re less likely to be given a fair shake for your claim.

To protect your claim reach out to an Atlanta car wreck lawyer who has handled DUI injury claims likes yours in the past, and understands the complexity of the differences between filing a lawsuit for an accident with a drunk driver and one for another kind of auto accident. 

An attorney can pursue additional avenues of recovery to ensure the financial safety of your family in the future. If you have been the victim of an accident with a drunk driver, insult is added to injury when you are forced to pay for the cost of medical treatment that is the result of another’s negligence, recklessness, and irresponsibility.
