Yes, you can. If you were injured in an Atlanta drunk driving crash, you may sue the driver even if you were a passenger in his vehicle. However, there may be some allocation of fault to you for making the choice to get into a motor vehicle driven by somebody who was intoxicated. Still,if the driver's intoxication caused him to drive in such a fashion that he was negligent and failed to use reasonable care and you were injured as a result of his negligence, then Georgia law allows you to make a car crash injury claim against the driver. This is also true, if the injury victim is a teenager who chose to ride with an intoxicated friend.
