Drunk driving is a reckless and irresponsible act that endangers everyone on the road. When a driver chooses to get behind the wheel under the influence of alcohol, they put innocent lives at risk.

Your Rights as a Victim of a Drunk Driving Accident in Atlanta

As a victim of a drunk driving accident, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages. This can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more. Unfortunately, even though you may have a claim, the burden falls on you to prove the other driver was negligent and that they caused the crash. Meanwhile, the insurance company will try to scramble out of liability any way they can. At The Schermerhorn Firm, we are committed to holding the responsible party accountable for their actions and ensuring that you are fairly compensated for the harm they have caused. We take the time to prove the other driver’s fault and document the full extent of your injury and legal damages. You can count on The Schermerhorn Firm for:

  • Aggressive Representation: We are not afraid to take on tough cases and fight aggressively for our clients’ rights. Our attorneys have a proven record of success in securing favorable outcomes for victims of all sorts of motor vehicle accidents.

  • Personalized Attention: We understand that every case is unique, and we provide personalized attention to each of our clients. We will work closely with you to understand your specific needs and build a strong case on your behalf.

  • No Fees Unless We Win: We operate on a contingency fee basis, which means you pay nothing unless we win your case. Our priority is to ensure that you receive the compensation you need to recover and move forward with your life.

Taking Legal Action After a Drunk Driving Accident

If you’ve been hit by a drunk driver, it’s crucial to take immediate action to protect your rights. Here are some important steps to take:

  1. Seek Medical Attention: Your health is the top priority. Even if you aren’t treated at the scene of the crash or taken to a hospital, it’s important to get checked by a medical professional as soon as you can, as some injuries may not be immediately apparent but could still be serious.

  2. Report the Accident: Contact the police at the time of the crash if you are able. If the police come to the scene, they can gather evidence of the other driver’s intoxication, which can be a significant factor in moving your case forward to a successful conclusion.

  3. Gather Evidence: If possible, take photos of the scene, your injuries, and any damage to your vehicle. Collect contact information from witnesses.

  4. Contact The Schermerhorn Firm: Reach out to an experienced personal injury attorney at The Schermerhorn Firm in Atlanta as soon as possible. We will guide you through the legal process, handle all the paperwork, and fight for your rights every step of the way.
