Holding Intoxicated Drivers and Other Parties Accountable
Despite tougher laws and millions of dollars spent on public safety campaigns, drunk drivers are still a major menace on the roadways of Georgia. If a driver who was impaired by alcohol or drugs caused a crash, you are entitled to compensatory damages and possibly punitive. If a bar or restaurant served a person who was already intoxicated, you may be able to sue that business as well.
At Daniels & Taylor, P.C., we have handled the tragedy of serious injury or death tracing to an intoxicated driver's decision to get behind the wheel of a car. We are committed to justice and maximum compensation for you or your loved one.

Gwinnett County and Walton County Drunk Driver Accident Lawyers
Our lawyers handle all personal injury claims on a contingency-fee basis. There are no attorneys' fees unless you recover compensation in a settlement or jury award. You will work directly with one of our experienced attorneys to protect your interests in regard to your personal injury claim.
Drunk driver accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or fatality because of the circumstances of the crash: T-bone accidents from running a red light, head-on collisions from weaving over the centerline, or rear-end collisions at high speed.
Our lawyers work diligently to verify that the other driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or even a doctor-prescribed medication that is incompatible with safe driving. We will fight the insurance companies for compensation for medical bills, lost earnings, pain and suffering and any permanent disability. Depending on the facts of the case, punitive damages may also apply.
Lawsuits Under Dram Shop Liability
We can represent any victim of an intoxicated driver: pedestrians, occupants of another vehicle, or even passengers in the drunk driver's vehicle. In addition to a suit against the drunk driver, Georgia statute allows victims to sue a bar, nightclub or restaurant for a drunk driving accident. The establishment may be liable if it served more alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person or served any alcohol to an under-21 driver, if that driver then caused a serious crash. Under certain circumstances, social hosts (such as homeowners and party hosts) may also be liable for contributing to a drunk driving accident.
