Who Is Responsible in Georgia DUI Accidents?

Comments (0)

According to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2,597 people were killed in United States traffic accidents in December 2010. Of those, 775 deaths involved alcohol-impaired drivers.

Georgia's Driving Under the Influence Laws are complex. Georgia DUI injury attorney Shane Smith can sort through the intermingled laws that potentially create complications in a DUI case.

According to Georgia law, different parties may be held accountable in a DUI accident. These parties may include:

  • Bars, taverns, restaurants and clubs can be held responsible for serving alcohol to visibly impaired drivers (Georgia Dram Shop Act);
  • Bars, taverns, restaurants and clubs can be held responsible for serving alcohol to underage patrons (Georgia Dram Shop Act);
  • Passengers or companions who allow an intoxicated person to drive;
  • Companies that hire drivers who have histories of DUI violations.

If you have questions about Georgia DUI laws, get the answers in Clayton County DUI injury attorney Shane Smith's book, I Was Hit By a Drunk Driver: What Do I Do Next? Contact the Law Offices of Shane Smith to schedule a free legal consultation.
