Georgia Driving Under the Influence (DUI) Laws (Part B)
What damages can I recover after a Georgia DUI accident?
If you have been injured in a Georgia DUI accident, you may be eligible for damages such as:
- your medical expenses;
- any physical pain or emotional suffering that you experienced; and
- any wages that you may have lost as a result of your personal injuries.
To recover these damages, you may negotiate a settlement with the other party's insurance company. If the insurance company does not cooperate or offers you an unsatisfactory settlement, you may have to file a Georgia personal injury lawsuit in a formal court of law.
Filing a Georgia Personal Injury Claim
If you have been injured in a Georgia DUI accident, and you want to file a claim, you should get the help of an experienced legal professional, such as a Clayton personal injury attorney. Oftentimes, an insurance company will try to deny you the money that you deserve or offer you a settlement far below what your injuries may cost you. The insurance company is a business first and foremost, and so they will try to protect their own bottom line by attempting to get you to accept the lowest settlement offer possible.
By hiring a Clayton personal injury attorney, you will have the help of someone who knows the tactics preferred by the insurance industry. An experienced attorney can do their best to negotiate a settlement. If a settlement cannot be reached, your attorney can file a Georgia personal injury lawsuit, and represent your interests in court.
