Obtaining Compensation for Your Drunk Driving Accident Claim

Many victims of drunk driving accidents feel comforted by the fact that the drunk driver will be criminally charged but it is important to note that criminal cases and civil cases are different. While the criminal case is designed to penalize the criminal, it does nothing to help the victim. That must be pursued through a civil claim.

At Kalka & Baer, we are invested in representing victims of negligent and reckless driving accidents. When you enlist the help of our experienced Marietta accident attorneys, you can feel confident that we will do everything in our power to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.

When you need the representation of someone who can fight for your rights, our attorneys at Kalka & Baer LLC fit the bill. We have recovered millions of dollars for our clients.

What Can Accident Compensation Cover?

The financial amount recovered through a personal injury claim can cover:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Decrease in quality of life
  • General pain & suffering
  • Loss of companionship
  • Punitive damages

How Different Levels of BAC Affect a Driver

Affects include:

  • 0.02-0.03% BAC: slight feelings of euphoria, mildly relaxed with little to no loss of coordination.
  • 0.04-0.07% BAC: minor impairment of memory, reasoning, and emotions intensified. Inhibitions lowered and a sensation of warmth. Overall sense of euphoria coupled by psychomotor impairment. Eyes will not move as quickly and peripheral vision impaired.
  • 0.08 – 0.10% BAC: legally impaired. Speech is slurred and balance significantly affected. Reduced information processing for signal detection, visual searches, and short-term memory loss.
  • .15% and above: possible vomiting and major loss of balance. Substantial impairment in vehicle control and attention to driving tasks.

It is imperative that you call the police to the scene of your accident so that they can record the actions of all parties involved. They can adequately assess whether or not the other driver had been drinking and even test their BAC level to use as evidence later on in your case.

Statute of Limitations for Your Claim

In the state of Georgia, there is a two year time limit from the date of the injury that the victim of the car accident has to file a civil claim. After the two year date has passed, any claim that they may try to file will be dismissed and the injured will not be able to pursue any further action.

You have nothing to lose by calling our Marietta auto accident attorneys for a free consultation of your case. Our attorneys are esteemed throughout the state for their hard work, dedication, and compassionate approach with every client.
