Can the Georgia Open Records Act Help My DUI Case? If you have been injured in Georgia due to the negligence of a drunk driver, you are likely due compensation under state laws. But how do you know if your Georgia DUI case is being handled in a thorough manner? Every lawyer takes a different approach to handle a DUI case. Atlanta attorney Shane Smith takes a comprehensive one in order to ensure that his clients receive the highest reward possible. The Georgia Open Records Act allows him to examine the criminal record of a driver who has been charged with DUI or DWI. He often finds that such drivers have been charged with two or even three previous DUIs.

What does this mean for the victim of a drunk driving accident? Victims are entitled to more punitive damages if the driver has been convicted more than once. There is no reason to leave money on the table unless a lawyer wants to move the client along quickly. Shane Smith’s experience has proven that taking the time to investigate each individual case pays dividends for innocent victims. If you have been injured by a drunk driver in Georgia and would like more information, please call the Law Office of Shane Smith today at (980) 246-2656.
