Drunk driving is a problem every week across Atlanta, but the concern becomes an even bigger issue during times where people are engulfed in holiday activities. Whether the intoxication occurs as they’re battling depression of not being with their loved ones or having one too many at an open bar from a friend’s office party, the excuses for drunk driving are never ok.
Unfortunately, Atlanta families can find themselves the victim of another person’s bad judgement, once that intoxicated individual decides to get behind the wheel.
Accidents caused by drunk driving occur even more frequently around Christmas and New Year’s. The results can leave you permanently injured, or at best, only needing a few weeks to recover from the whiplash.
Either way, you deserve to be compensated for missing work, hospital bills, and automotive repairs. For many drunk driving victims, insult to injury happens when the intoxicated driver who hit them is still physically able to get up and walk away from the accident unscathed.
You don’t want anyone else to be hurt, or worse, killed, because of the same drunk driver getting behind the wheel and doing it all over again to another Atlanta family. According to the Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities accounted for 29% of the total vehicle traffic fatalities just in the last couple of years.
