How Can I Get Financial Compensation After Being Injured by a Drunk Driver in Georgia?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers and helps them fight for the financial compensation they deserve. Here are some thoughts from Brian on the legal options available to these individuals in Georgia:
Getting injured by a drunk driver causes a variety of both personal and financial difficulties. If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, it’s important to be aware of your legal rights and options for financial compensation.
You may already know that you could have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver who injured you. But in some cases, your legal options may not end there. There are some situations where people that have been hit by drunk drivers may have grounds for a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor. This is known as a dram shop claim.
Georgia is one of several states with dram shop laws. According to Georgia Code section 51-4-40, you may have grounds for a dram shop lawsuit against an alcohol vendor if the vendor:
- “willfully, knowingly, and unlawfully” served alcohol to someone who was under the age of 21, or
- “knowingly” served alcohol to someone who was noticeably intoxicated, and
- the vendor was aware that the person they had served would soon be driving a motor vehicle.
