Bar & Tavern Liability for Drunk Driving Accidents

Atlanta Area Injury Lawyers
for Drunk Driving Accident Victims

It starts when someone who has been drinking decides to get behind the wheel of a car and drive. It could be they've only had one or two. It could be they've had three or four too many. It could be they're only going a few blocks. Whatever the rationale, at some point decisions to drink and drive can become horribly tragic.

A person who has used drugs or had too much liquor before driving might fall asleep or pass out and lose control of their vehicle, crossing the center line and hitting someone else head-on in the process. They might blow a stop sign or run a red light and T-bone another car in the intersection.

In a black and white world, the story of a drunk driving accident ends there, with liability for the accident falling nowhere but on the shoulders of the person who drank and drove. In the real world, the one we live in — gray is the color we deal with most often. And what we know, based on more than 60 years of combined experience with personal injury cases, is that there is often more to these stories than meets the eye.

Georgia Liquor Liability Law

Under Georgia's liquor liability statutes (also know as dram shop laws) — injured people and families who have lost loved ones in connection with a drunk driving accident can not only file suit against the drunk driver and their insurance company, they can also seek compensation and even punitive damages from a bar, tavern, restaurant or any social host that provided alcohol to a clearly intoxicated person.
