Drunk Driving is a choice. Sadly, drunk driver accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries and deaths on roads today. According to a report generated by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 10,000 people die daily on the road each year. In 2007, there were 12,998 fatal car accidents due to drunk drivers out of which 441 car accidents were in Georgia alone. Many innocent lives are lost every three hours, individuals who were not driving drunk.
If you or a loved one was injured as a result of a drunk driver, then you may have a DUI/drunk driving case. The judicial process to deal with drunk driver accident cases is far different than other car wreck which is why it is crucial to seek legal advice from an experienced car accident lawyer. Consult a drunk driving/DUI accident attorney for further clarification.
The biggest challenge in a DUI case could be lack of evidence. Drunk drivers may be uninsured, which means that they do not have insurance. As a result, your insurance may have to cover the costs associated with your injuries. Many insurance companies do not want to pay claims. Sadly, victims are held responsible for paying the costs associated with their injuries even though they were not at fault. In such situations, a DUI accident attorney will be of great help in filing a lawsuit against the offenders.
