The Dangers Of DUI Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has found that over one quarter of all car accident fatalities involve drunk driving. Victims injured in an accident caused by another motorist's negligence may be eligible for compensation for their injuries. Reckless driving, speeding, drunk driving, and other failures to maintain traffic safety rules can be some instances of a motorist's negligence. Driving is a privilege, not a right, and when drivers neglect other people's safety on the road, they may find themselves liable for any accidents or injuries that result.

The value of an accident claim will depend on several factors - the severity of the injuries suffered by the victim, as well as the conduct of the defendant. Broadly, you can recover economic losses, like medical expenses and lost wages, as well as damages for non-economic losses such as pain and suffering loss of enjoyment of life. An Atlanta car accident lawyer will help you quantify your claim, and recover compensation for these.
