Losing a loved one or suffering serious injuries in an auto accident is tragic. When you find out that the person who was at-fault for the accident was under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, it can make the accident even more difficult to deal with.

At Hilley & Frieder, P.C., we represent victims and their families who were injured in drunk driving accidents. The negligent, at-fault drivers should be held accountable for their actions. While a conviction for driving under the influence is not a requirement to file a civil lawsuit against the negligent driver, a conviction can help bolster a civil case.

Serious injuries, such as a spinal cord or head injury, can be very expensive to treat. When it comes to long-term care, the victims may find that the cost of care is simply unmanageable unless it is paid for by the at-fault party or his or her insurance company.

Drunk driving accidents often result in fatalities and while no settlement or award can bring back a loved one, a financial award can help provide your family with financial stability. We provide guidance, seek maximum compensation and make sure your rights are protected.

Georgia laws are very specific on driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Accidents caused by drunk drivers or those who are under the influence of a prescription or illegal drug are preventable. That’s what makes these accidents so tragic.
