Compensatory Damages You Can Recover
After being involved in a drunk driving accident, it is crucial to seek skilled legal counsel, so you can recover compensation for your injuries. Our team will focus on advocating on your behalf while you focus your attention on your health and wellbeing.
Below is a list of compensatory damages you may receive for your accident claim:
- Pain and suffering, including loss of enjoyment of life and health impairments.
- Lost wages or reduced earning capacity due to your injuries.
- Past and future medical expenses, including physical therapy, medication, and follow-up visits necessary for your recovery.
- Disfigurement or disfigurement.
Punitive Damages in Drunk Driving Accidents
In addition to compensatory damages, Georgia also awards punitive damages to penalize defendants for particularly egregious offenses. Moreover, though such damages are typically capped at $250,000, accidents that involved the influence of drugs or alcohol are an exception. Therefore, if you are awarded punitive damages, they can potentially exceed $250,000. To pursue punitive damages, your attorney may present the at-fault driver’s past history of drunk driving as evidence, including other accidents or DUI convictions.
