Drunk Driving Accidents

Alpharetta Drunk Driving Accident Attorneys
In Georgia and across the United States, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle if your blood alcohol content (BAC) is over .8%.  How much alcohol it takes to reach that level depends on a few variables including the consumer's height and weight, and the time between drinks.  Because it is not possible to tell when you are at or above the .8% level without professional equipment, it is always best to have a designated driver or utilize a commercial ride share care like Uber or Lyft.  DUI charges often result in jail time, and if a drunk driver causes an accident with injuries the results are catastrophic for both the driver and their victims.

Drinking establishments, liquor stores and even hosts of private parties can be held liable for injuries and deaths caused by drunk drivers they serve. Referred to as "dram shop" laws, liability in drunk driving accidents transfers to anyone who knowingly served alcohol to a visibly intoxicated or under aged person. At The Law Office of Casey W. Stevens, our lawyers review bar tabs, credit card statements, video footage when available, and interview eyewitnesses to determine how much alcohol a person was served prior to his or her causing an accident. Consulting forensic specialists and alcohol experts, we provide jurors with information regarding the blood alcohol content (BAC) of a drunk driver during the time prior to the accident.

We have the resources and knowledge needed to hold bars, restaurants, liquor stores and hosts of private parties responsible for their actions. To schedule a free consultation and discuss your case, contact drunk driving accident lawyers at Casey W. Stevens today.

Determining the Cost of a Drunk Driving Accident

Drunk driving accidents can result in serious head, neck, back, and spine injuries. In some cases, drunk driving accidents are fatal. In order to ensure our clients receive just compensation for their losses, our attorneys work with experienced medical economists and life care planners. We provide cost-data projections covering the cost of current and future medical care, lost wages, and diminished quality of life. We demand nothing less than an award or settlement proportional to our clients’ financial losses and emotional suffering.

Holding Negligent Servers of Alcohol Financially Liable

The majority of restaurants, bars and liquor stores involved in dram shop cases vigorously deny any culpability in drunk driving accident cases. However, in reviewing bar or restaurant tabs and credit card statements, we can often establish when and how many drinks were ordered. Using eyewitness testimony from other patrons or staff members, our lawyers are often able to establish clear evidence of visible intoxication. In the case of liquor stores, most have store security camera footage. Difficulty walking and exaggerated motions usually betray intoxication at the time of a purchase.

Client Reviews
After being involved and a five car accident I contacted Casey Stevens law firm. I was given his number by a fellow coworker at my job who had used him in the past and was very satisfied with his services. The car accident included myself my husband and my son, the accident was determined to be the fault of two drivers involved in the accident. Casey personally came to my home the next day and said down with me and my family at the kitchen table and went over all the events of the accident. There were months and months of physical therapy, doctor visits injections and while my son had to have his mouth wired after having his jaw broke in three places. Casey and his staff worked continuously on our case and after it was all said and done, they where able to get us over $300,000 in damages. I really want to Thank Casey Stevens and his staff for always being available for phone calls and answering any questions I might have. I will continue to recommend potential clients to Casey Stevens law firm. - Nina F
