Really took care of me
Michael Moran and his team took good care of me. They kept me in the loop of everything that was going on. All I did was do what they wanted me to do and kept them updated. I’m very satisfied with the outcome of my settlement. Thanks.
On November 30, 2022 I experienced the worst injury that I have ever experienced at fault not my own, while on a quick out of town trip. Not only was I severely burned at an establishment, but I was denied representation by several firms where my incident happened. Unbeknownst to me just because an incident happens in a certain state doesn't mean you have to obtain representation there, which is how I had a turn around in defeat. Not only did Montlick & Associates instantly take my case, Ellen Forrester provided candor from the start on the pros, cons, and how she could deliver her services with the goal of fighting for me as her client being one that was truly heartfelt. From constant check ins from Dayna Clark (Ellen's Senior Legal Assistant), to pertinent information delivered directly from Ellen, I felt the utmost service with care was provided. Ellen was diligent in getting the best results no matter the fight. In the end I had a successful outcome and hopefully raised enough awareness for an incident this traumatic not to happen to anyone else. I Thank Ellen & Dayna for all their hard work and would recommend more stars if I could based on their client care alone.

Driving Drunk Is a Crime

In Georgia, drunk driving is a serious offense. Per Georgia law:

  • A person must not drive or have physical control of any moving vehicle after consuming alcohol to the point of intoxication.
  • Operating a vehicle while under the influence of any drug that impairs driving ability is prohibited.
  • It is not permitted for any person to drive with a blood alcohol concentration limit of 0.08 grams at any time within three hours of operating the vehicle.
  • A commercial driver’s license (CDL) holder cannot drive a commercial motor vehicle with 0.04 percent or more BAC in their blood, breath, or urine.

The Clock Is Ticking for Your Injury Claim

In Albany, Georgia, you generally have only two years from the date of your car accident to file a lawsuit against the drunk driver, but there are exceptions making the timeframe shorter or longer. The best thing you can do is call Montlick today—an attorney will evaluate your case and advise you on your legal options.

Proving Fault in Your Case

Georgia law enforcement can find someone guilty of drunk driving in two ways:

1. A member of law enforcement observes that a driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs while using the road.

2. A person’s chemical test result reveals a blood alcohol content (BAC) of:

    • 0.08% or more (for a driver over 21 years old)
    • 0.02% or higher (if the driver is under 21 years old)
    • 0.04% or more for someone driving a commercial vehicle.

An experienced personal injury attorney will be able to investigate your unique situation and could find additional avenues to prove fault.

You Have Options

While all hope may seem lost at first, we’re here to assure you that there are options when it comes to compensation. Speak with one of our lawyers today to learn more about what you could be entitled to.

Understanding Georgia Dram Shop Laws

Georgia’s Dram Shop Law states that a business selling alcohol can be held liable for damages caused by their customers if they were over-served alcohol and injured someone. This law allows the injured person to pursue compensation from the business for any damages caused by the intoxicated person.

What to Do After a Drunk Driving Accident

The moments after a collision with a drunk driver are critical. If you are alert and can safely do so, follow these directives to help both your health and your eventual claim:

  • Call 911 and do not leave the scene until they arrive. While you wait, check for any injuries to yourself or other passengers, or damage to your vehicle.
  • Photograph the scene as much as you can from all angles. Save the photos for your attorney.
  • Exchange information with the other driver and get contact information from any witnesses present. These witnesses could offer testimonies that strengthen your case.
  • Even if you believe your injuries are negligible, get checked by a medical professional. There’s a chance your injuries may not be external or immediately visible. Put your safety first and ensure that a doctor thoroughly examines you.
  • A drunk driving accident also causes emotional damage. Remember, your mental health matters too. Seek any counseling services you may need.
