DUI Victim Advocate Explains Punitive Damages

Shane Smith, an experienced Georgia advocate for DUI victims, explains in this video how victims of drunk drivers can pursue punitive damages. Watch as he discusses the rights victims of drunken driving accidents have and how to pursue punitive damages against the drunk driver. If you were a victim of an Atlanta, Georgia car accident in which the driver was under the influence of alcohol, you most likely have a strong case to pursue punitive damages. In Georgia, the law states that if a driver shows a reckless disregard for human life and behaves in a reckless manner, punitive damages are available. This is especially true for drunk drivers, as they have chosen to endanger your life by drinking and driving. Punitive damages punish negligent drivers and award you, the victim, compensation for their reckless behavior.
