DUI Accident Liability and Claims in Georgia

The legal terms used in Georgia drunk driving accident claims can be confusing. Two of the most important concepts to know are liability and claims. If someone has had one too many drinks at a bar and causes an accident, the driver is typically considered at fault, or liable, for the resulting damages. Therefore, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit or claim, against the drunk driver to recover financial compensation. For example, you may be able to obtain money for your medical bills, permanent losses, missed time at work, and pain or emotional suffering caused by the accident.
