After any serious car accident, it is important to learn the facts about how and why the crash occurred. Discovering all the facts related to cause and liability can help the injured obtain needed compensation to cover expenses and losses:
Sometimes an investigation will reveal that an accident was caused by a drunk driver. This fact may make a family angry, but beyond the anger, there are legal aspects to sort out.
Georgia dram shop laws may hold a bar or restaurant responsible when a drunk driver consumed alcohol purchased while obviously intoxicated.
Insurance companies may have exclusions written into their policies to avoid having to pay out damages when a drunk driver was at fault.
Each of these issues requires careful attention and consideration as a family seeks to maximize compensation after a traffic accident. An investigation to discover dram shop liability will take time. Attorneys will need to review insurance policies carefully and time claims and lawsuits appropriately - ideally, before the conclusion of any criminal case involving the alleged intoxicated driver.
