Representing Injury Victims in Georgia Since 1995
In incidents where a driver was intoxicated, you might qualify for punitive damages on top of the usual compensation for your injuries and losses. These punitive damages aim to reprimand the at-fault party and prevent such irresponsible actions in the future. Our legal team will zealously pursue holding the intoxicated driver responsible and secure the fullest possible compensation based on the law.
Blood alcohol concentration (BAC) quantifies the alcohol level in someone's blood. When a person drinks alcohol, it enters their bloodstream and can hinder their thinking and physical skills, reducing their driving safety. The impact of alcohol on driving capability depends on personal tolerance and the amount drunk. However, higher BACs amplify the accident risk.
BAC 0.02% - 0.03%: Minor judgment lapses, slight relaxation, and gentle mood shifts might happen. BAC 0.05%: Coordination might drop, judgment may be compromised, and steering becomes harder. Reaction times could lengthen. BAC 0.08%: This BAC is the legal maximum for drivers in many places. Muscular coordination, balance, vision, hearing, and response time deteriorate. Processing information and concentration suffer too. BAC 0.10%: Slurred speech, clumsy movement, and delayed thinking can emerge. The likelihood of a car crash increases significantly. BAC 0.15%: This level brings about key issues with motor skills, equilibrium, and decision-making. There is a possibility of vomiting or even blacking out. The danger of a major accident is exceedingly high.
It is vital to hold intoxicated drivers responsible when their actions lead to accidents. Such actions are not just careless but also severely wrong, as they consciously endanger others by driving when impaired. By legally challenging these drivers, we emphasize that such recklessness is unacceptable and deter others from acting similarly. Additionally, making intoxicated drivers face the consequences can give victims and their loved ones a sense of justice and closure, as well as the monetary assistance they require to handle the accident's aftermath.
