The law prohibits both the consumption and furnishing of alcohol to a person who is known to about to get behind the wheel. A drunk driver is always liable for harm caused by his or her negligence. But often there is additional liability for injuries caused by the bar or restaurant that provided the alcohol to the driver.
Our Atlanta drunk driving accident lawyers have experience in all these areas of the law. Individuals under the age of 18 do not have the physical or emotional maturity to handle the consequences of alcohol consumption, therefore, anyone who supplies alcohol to young drivers can be held legally responsible for the harm caused by that young driver. Anyone, be it a business or an individual, who provides alcohol to minors can be held responsible for damage caused by those minors. Businesses can also be held responsible under the law for continuing to furnish alcohol to persons who are already intoxicated and in turn cause damage to others. We recognize how devastating these alcohol related accidents can be to innocent victims. In addition to being compensated for medical expenses, lost wages and loss of quality of life, punitive damages are often awarded to punish and deter the drunk driver from harming others in the future.
