Drunk Driving Car & Truck Accidents

Drunk Drivers

Driving while drunk, intoxicated or on drugs is a threat to every person on the road. A persons ability to operate a car or truck while drinking alcohol or taking drugs is greatly diminished, which increases the likelihood of a car or truck accident. Nowadays, more folks risk driving while drunk, impaired, or intoxicated, which can result in death and grave criminal consequences.

Georgia Law on DUI

The legal alcohol limit in Georgia is BAC 0.08. Drivers of commercial vehicles are held to a higher standard and cannot have a BAC above 0.04. Likewise, persons under the age of 21 can be charged with DUI if the BAC is greater than 0.02. Finally, a person may be charged with DUI if the officer determines that due to the influence of alcohol, he or she was “less safe” on the road.

Alcohol & Injury Claims

Any and all evidence can be brought forward regarding a drivers ability to operate their vehicle. This also includes a person who was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. It doesn’t matter if the driver ultimately beat the DUI charge, as admissions or evidence of alcohol or drug use are always admissible to show that the driver was negligent in operating their vehicle, and/or that punitive damages should be awarded as part of the injury claim.
