Brunswick Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys

Georgia drunk driving accidents are often cases that have a high level of stigma attached to them. When a person is hit by a drunk driver, that person is entitled to compensation, especially if the person is injured in the accident.

Due to the high level of compensation and negative publicity that typically surround these kinds of cases, insurance companies will generally try to settle them as quickly as possible. Many insurance companies attempt to make a settlement before the drunk driving victim has had the opportunity to contact a lawyer or seek medical treatment.

Hurt Or Injured By A Drunk Driver?

You need a personal injury attorney who will follow the DUI driver's criminal trial, research his criminal past & put it all together to get you the compensation you deserve. You see, what the insurance adjusters will not tell you is that you're entitled to make a claim for punitive damages in these types of cases. That is, the law allows a jury to assess punitive damages against the intoxicated driver in order to penalize and deter him and others from engaging in such conduct. At Whitworth & McLelland, we can advise you on your rights and help you get the compensation you deserve.
