The first element of any negligence claim is to determine that the other party owed you a duty of care to keep you safe from harm. In the occurrence of a drunk driver car accident the other driver owed you a duty to make sure they were fit to drive without becoming a hazard. 

When a driver is drunk, they are often impaired to the point where they are unable to react quickly or they become a danger to others due to erratic driving. When a driver is suspected of DUI it is considered a breach of duty in your Georgia injury claim.

They have been accused of negligence in finding alternative transportation
when they are unfit to drive. This can be critical evidence in your injury claim but only if you can obtain the official proof that they were accused of DUI by the authorities.

Showing evidence of breach of duty is part of the challenge of pursuing a DUI accident claim and you must do so on top of providing evidence that your injuries were a result of that breach. Negligence cases are rarely resolved without some sort of challenge by the other party, which is where a Fulton injury law firm can help provide you with support.

Even though DUI convictions are strong examples of driver negligence you will still need to provide proof of the negligence that caused your accident with a driver accused of DUI.
