An Atlanta personal injury lawyer from our firm can investigate your situation, negotiate a settlement, and litigate your case.
Exploring your options begins with one phone call. During your free, no-obligation case review, we want to hear your story – including how the accident happened and the severity of your injuries. We will do everything possible to hold the negligent driver financially accountable for their actions.
Every Civil Case Comes with a Filing Deadline
According to O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33, you generally have two years to file your civil lawsuit. Right now, two years might feel like worlds away. However, time moves faster than you think – and there’s a lot of work that goes into building a successful case. For that reason alone, we want to start as soon as possible.
Additionally, if you wait too long to file a lawsuit, you may be barred from seeking the compensation you deserve. By connecting with an Atlanta DUI accident lawyer from our firm, you take the first step in protecting your right to damages.

Testimonials from Our Past Clients
You don’t have to take our word for it. Some of our past clients have had these reviews to offer about their experience with Kaine Law:
- “I was involved in an auto-accident with a drunk driver and after several weeks of frustrating interactions with their insurance company, I decided to contact Evan Kaine. He was upfront and honest about how the process works… Bottom line – Evan Kaine gives lawyers a good name.” – M.T. from Atlanta, GA

You Can Seek Compensation Even If You Partially Caused the Accident
Perhaps you were speeding home from work when a drunk driver hit you. The police arrived and concluded you both contributed to the accident. Now what?
UnderO.C.G.A. § 51-12-33, you can seek damages as long as you did not cause more than 49 percent of the collision. However, this will reduce your award. Consider the following example scenario:
- The police determine you caused 30 percent of the accident, and the other driver caused 70 percent of the accident.
- Your damages total $100,000.
- The insurance company or courts reduce your award by 30 percent (your percentage of fault), leaving you with $70,000.
As noted, our lawyers will use your case’s evidence to support your allegations. Evidence may include the accident report, witness testimony, and traffic camera footage.
Take the Following Steps If You’ve Been Injured in an Atlanta Auto Accident
Consider how the following measures could secure the outcome of your civil case:
Seek Medical Attention
You should seek medical attention soon after your collision. Even if you don’t notice any external injuries, internal injuries can worsen over time. For instance, you might not experience symptoms of a traumatic brain injury for weeks after the initial incident.
Additionally, if you wait too long to see a doctor, the insurance company could use this fact against you. It might argue that your injuries came from another event – and not the collision.
Notify Your Insurer
Notify your insurance company of the accident, even if you were not at fault. Georgia is a “fault” state. In this instance, you could seek damages from the negligent party’s insurer. If you have any problems securing a settlement, our lawyers can step in and help.
Consider Connecting with Our Firm
You might think that your case is relatively straightforward. However, even if there’s clear evidence that a drunk driver caused your accident, the insurer could still deny your claim. While recovering from the collision, you don’t have time to play phone tag with uncooperative insurance agents.
Instead, your lawyer can handle your case’s obligations. You stay home and spend time with your loved ones. In the meantime, we will advocate for your rights – whether in or out of court.

How Much Could I Get in a Settlement or Award?
