Driving under the influence (DUI/DWI) is a criminal offense in Georgia.  Any driver who operates found a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater or who drives while impaired by alcohol or a drug of any type faces criminal charges.  In Georgia, DUI or DWI may result in imprisonment, fines, and license restrictions. 
 
The criminal case is independent of your personal injury claim; however, if the driver is convicted, that fact can be used as support for your Georgia injury case.  To learn more, request a copy of Atlanta DUI accident injury attorney Shane Smith's books, 10 Mistakes That Can Ruin Your Georgia Wreck Case and I Was Hit By A Drunk Driver: What Do I Do Next?
