Fight For The Recovery You Deserve After An Accident With A Drunk Driver
On average, over 10,000 Americans die every year in alcohol-related accidents. In 2019, 353 of those were in Georgia. Even more people suffer from severe injuries in such crashes. If you were hurt by a drunk driver, you have the right to seek damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you do just that.
At Overman & Overman LLC, our attorneys have over three decades of combined legal experience. We put our clients first every time. We will advocate for your best interest, and we will not accept an offer for you unless it is the right move. We are experienced trial lawyers who are always prepared to go to court and fight for the damages you deserve.
Common Drunk Driving Accidents
Common motor vehicle accidents with an impaired driver include:
- Head-on collisions – Alcohol, as well as certain medications, can cause drowsiness. When a driver falls asleep at the wheel, they may drift across lanes of traffic into an oncoming car.
- Hit-and-runs – Too often, impaired drivers panic after an accident, not wanting to be arrested for DUI. Therefore, they flee an accident rather than staying to report the accident and help anyone who might be injured.
- Rear-end collisions – Impaired drivers do a poor job of judging distance and may not slow or stop in time to avoid running into the car ahead of them.
- Hitting a pedestrian – Drunk driving often occurs at night when visibility is already low. Drivers are more likely not to see pedestrians at night, and if they do, they may not have the ability to react in time to avoid an accident.
All of these accidents can result in serious, and even fatal injuries. We can help you reconstruct the accident and document your injuries in order to give you a strong claim.
Dealing With Catastrophic Injuries
Your car crash likely upended your life in a matter of seconds, leaving you with devastating injuries. Whether you suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI), broken bones or a spinal cord injury, your recovery could take months or in some cases, years. Some injuries may even be permanent.
The more severe your injuries, the more careful you should be settling your case. You want to take your time to have a full understanding of your injuries, your prognosis and the care you will need in the future. You may want to claim lost wages, especially if you cannot return to your current job. If you lost a loved one in the accident, we could also assist you with bringing a wrongful death claim against the driver.
As a family-run firm, we value our clients like they are family. When you hire Overman & Overman LLC, you can rely on the personal attention from a small firm without compromising the experience you want on your side at this critical time.
