You Need Aggressive Legal Counsel from Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys
Recovering from a DUI accident injury can be a painful, grueling, and expensive process.
In DUI accidents, innocent victims often suffer injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Neck and spine injuries
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Amputations/limb loss
- Permanent scarring
Even if your injuries are not severe, settlements and jury verdicts in DUI accident claims can be significantly larger than accident settlements involving a sober driver.
If you suffered any type of injury in an accident caused by a senseless drunk driver, you have the right to take legal action. With Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys on your side, you will be positioned for success from the very start. Our Savannah DUI accident attorneys can inform you of your rights, explain the compensation you are entitled to, and deal with the powerful insurance companies on your behalf.
Skilled DUI Accident Negotiations
Allow Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys to negotiate with the insurance companies and their attorney(s) to get you a fair settlement for the injuries and damages you incurred after a DUI accident.
The insurance company will almost always submit the lowest offer initially. Sometimes, that offer doesn’t even begin to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and the pain and suffering you and your family have endured. It is important that the insurance company knows you are protected by legal counsel who will not accept this lowdown tactic. Our Savannah DUI accident attorneys are always ready to put up a fight.
Maximizing Your Settlement
Beware of those entities – including medical bills, liens, mechanics, and loan companies – that will eat away at your settlement. Your settlement is not safe until all loose ends are tied up. Jamie Casino Injury Attorneys will attempt to maximize your settlement while helping you reduce your medical bills and other costs associated with your DUI accident claim. Lowering your bills may significantly increase the cash you get to pocket from your injury settlement. Do not allow outside forces to take what is rightfully yours.
Punitive Damages in DUI Accidents
Drunk drivers who hurt others while driving may be forced to pay punitive damages on top of compensatory damages. Punitive damages are not intended to reimburse you for any losses but are meant to punish the drunk driver for their gross negligence. Punitive damages can also substantially increase your DUI injury settlement. The careless and selfish DUI driver can be held to a much higher level of responsibility with no caps on the amount you can cost them financially.
Georgia Dram Shop Laws for Liable Third-Parties & Bars
In Georgia, it is possible to hold a third-party liable for the damages incurred due to a drunk driving accident if that party contributed to the accident through negligence or recklessness. For the most part, dram shop laws are used against bars, restaurants, and clubs. However, social hosts that serve alcohol to guests without a charge can also be targeted by a dram shop law claim.
How dram shop laws hold third-parties accountable:
- Underage intoxication: Any social host or business that provides alcohol to someone who is younger than 21 can be held partially liable for any damages that underaged driver causes in a subsequent drunk driving accident. Even if the host or bar does not know the driver was underaged, they can still be held liable if it can be proven that they did not take reasonable steps to ensure the age of that person before giving or selling them alcohol.
- Overserving alcohol: Dram shop laws also prohibit alcohol to be served or sold to someone “who is in a state of noticeable intoxication” and who intends to use a motor vehicle later. In other words, a bar must stop selling alcohol to a patron who is visibly drunk, such as stumbling, slurring words, smells harshly of alcohol, etc. If that person causes a drunk driving accident later, then the host or company that gave them alcohol after they were drunk could be partially liable for the damages.
