When an intoxicated driver causes a catastrophic Atlanta drunk driving accident that injures or even kills another person, he or she will likely face two separate trials. The first, a criminal trial, determines if the driver committed a wrong against the state or society. The second trial, a civil trial, determines if the driver committed a wrong against another person or the surviving family members. An Atlanta DUI victim attorney can help you track the results of a criminal trial, using a guilty verdict to strengthen your case to recover financial damages from the negligent driver. It is very important that you find a lawyer you can trust and communicate with. At Shane Smith Law, we have helped many drunk driving victims find justice and can help you.
