Drunk driving happens every day. Though we always like to think that accidents only happen to other people, the statistics simply do not back this up. 1 in 3 people will be involved in an alcohol-related accident sometime during their life.
The person driving beside you at any moment could be intoxicated. The signs of drunk driving, which you can keep an eye out for when you are on the road, include:
- Wide turns
- Slow speeds
- High speeds
- No headlights
- No turn signals
- Almost hitting an object
If you see any of these behaviors on display, call the police immediately and report the driver. You could prevent an accident that may have injured or even killed innocent people. These sorts of crashes happen every day.
If you or a family member had the misfortune of being involved in an accident with a drunk driver and being injured or even killed as a result, you may be eligible to recover damages after the fact. This financial compensation may cover your medical bills, missed time at work, and much more.
The only way to know for sure what you are eligible to receive is to contact a Georgia DUI victim attorney and schedule a free consultation. You can use their expert advice to determine how to proceed in your case.
