Public advocacy group Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) reports that 23% of all traffic deaths in Georgia are caused by drunk drivers. In other words, 1 in 4 people who are killed on the roads of Cumming and throughout the state are the victims of drivers who made the decision to get behind the wheel after having too much to drink. If the accident that injured you or your family member was caused by someone who was driving under the influence of alcohol, street drugs, or prescription medication, there is a very good chance that you have grounds to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
Suffering injury in an accident with a drunk driver seems like it should be irrefutable grounds for compensation. The fact that the driver of the other vehicle was under the influence of drugs or alcohol does not, however, guarantee that you will be successful in your claim for damages. In such a case, the insurance company may still attempt to avoid paying on the claim by disputing whether or not their policy holder is actually to blame for causing the accident.
Furthermore, they may try to minimize the value of the claim by attempting to demonstrate that the scope of your injuries is not as great as it actually is. Don't let the drunk driver and his or her insurance company get away without paying you the amount you need and deserve for your medical bills, lost income, and pain and suffering.
