Grayson DUI Accident Attorney Wishes Every Month Was Alcohol Awareness Month Not Just April
Unfortunately, the public has not been made aware of the dangers of alcohol enough. Fortunately, there are some organizations that do their part to show how dangerous alcohol is, especially when it comes to drinking and driving. The Century Council has designated April as Alcohol Awareness Month because they want to stop alcohol abuse in all forms, including drunk driving.
The Century Council is not shy about its commitment to keeping people safe in Georgia and all over America. Taking advantage of social media, the Internet and traditional outreach methods such as word of mouth and television marketing methods, it reminds people that alcohol is a destructive substance that produces no good, but only bad in people's lives. Combating underage drinking, drunk driving and alcohol abuse in general, the organization uses government, medical and ordinary people to show how abusing alcohol adversely affects your rights and privileges, your health and the relationship you have with your family and your friends and neighbors.
If you or a family member has suffered injuries or has been killed by a drunk driver or another person under the influence of alcohol, you may have a personal injury claim in the State of Georgia. The only way to determine how and what your individual circumstances entitle you to is by talking to a Georgia DUI accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

You can do your part for April by building upon the actions of the Century Council. You don’t have to make national headlines – all you have to do is make the difference in the life of one person. Here are some examples on what you can do:
- Show your loved ones and friends that you care about how much they drink – suggesting simple steps as sticking to a limit of drinks or even noting how much is drunk will help you loved one’s realize how much alcohol that are really drinking.
- Talk to your children about the health and legal impacts of drinking underage. Be open to answer any questions they may have about the law or how it impacts their body.
- See if you can hold a town hall meeting with medical, law and community experts about how alcohol directly and indirectly impacts everyone in their community. Encourage this as a way to ask questions and learn more about alcohol related behaviors.
While these strategies do work and may save lives, unfortunately, many people do become injured or killed in a drunk driving accident. If you or a family member has been injured or killed in a DUI accident, talking with a Grayson DUI accident lawyer will help you evaluate the accident’s circumstances and see if you might be able to pursue a claim.
