Whenever someone who is legally intoxicated gets behind the wheel, they are immediately liable for any accident they may cause. Unfortunately, drunk driving injury accidents occur frequently and often. It is the unsuspecting victims who are hit by the intoxicated driver that usually have the most serious injuries. If you have sustained a serious injury due to a negligent drunk driver, you may need an attorney to help you obtain compensation for your injuries. Keith D. Leshine Attorney at Law, LLC is your source when you need an experienced drunk driving accident injury lawyer in the Atlanta area.
In Georgia, the legal alcohol limit to drive is a BAC of .08%. However, any alcohol in the body can have an impact on judgement and response time. If a vehicle accident occurs and a driver has been consuming alcohol, it can factor into whether or not they are at-fault for the accident. If the driver is legally intoxicated, they should not have been behind the wheel and may be completely liable, despite the circumstances of the accident. Even with a lower BAC than the legal limit, the alcohol consumption could play a role in an injury accident lawsuit.
