If you or a loved one were injured in this way, whether you or your loved one suffered minor injuries or serious injuries (such as a traumatic brain injury), you need to make sure that you have the professional legal representation of our DUI accident lawyer in Athens to work toward a reasonable and just outcome.

Drunk Driving Accident FAQs:

  • Can you still sue a drunk driver if you were their passenger? If you were a drunk driver's passenger at the time of their accident, you may have grounds to sue them for your injuries.

Whether or not you will be able to claim compensation will depend largely on the details of your case.
