Man charged with DUI after car accident

Driving after drinking is a terrible idea for any Atlanta driver. Drunk drivers kill thousands of people each year in crashes that never needed to happen. Car wrecks caused by drunk drivers are completely preventable; those who are arrested should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

A man has been charged in a DUI crash that occurred recently near Lockheed Elementary school in Cobb. The man was driving when he lost control of his car on a curve and flipped it on an embankment. Two passengers of the car were injured, including one who suffered life-threatening injuries. The driver has been arrested on suspicion of DUI, driving too fast and failure to maintain a lane.

A family who has had a loved one involved in an accident that involves a negligent driver can feel angry and upset. No one expects their loved one will be involved in an accident. When that accident is the result of someone else's poor decision, it can affect a family forever. The injured or killed victim was a cherished loved one, breadwinner, mom, dad or friend. A legal professional skilled in personal injury can help a family figure out what happened to cause the accident. They can visit the accident scene, interview witnesses, review police reports and determine if someone may be responsible for the accident. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, funeral expenses, lost wages and other damages.

Accidents caused by drunk driving are completely preventable. It is important that everyone does their part to help make Atlanta roads safe for everyone.
