Sandy Springs Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving accidents happen all too often in Sandy Springs, the state of Georgia and throughout the United States, and the results of trauma and death are disastrous. Attorney intervention is crucial to protect the rights of victims in our city who end up paying the price for DUI offenders. Sandy Springs Police are constantly fighting the battle to get offenders off our roads. Alcohol impaired drivers continue dangerously taking to the streets of our city after having been intoxicated with beverages that alter and impair their mental and physical ability to drive. Unfortunately, innocent people have to share the roads with offenders. You have no way of telling who you are driving next to who has been under the influence of alcohol consumption unless, of course, you can spot them swerving or driving dangerously. Most of the time, you cannot. They do not get caught until they meet up with law enforcement officials who can typically spot signs of DUI abuse. It is common for alcohol impaired drivers to be out at night after drinking, but they can also be on the roads in broad daylight. They are deadly, illegal and can be habitual offenders.

Securing a drunk driving accident attorney experienced with DUI claims is an important step in seeking recovery for the loss caused by bodily injury, property damage, loss of wages, and all of the medical expenses associated with the wreck. No one expects to be overtaken by an out of control vehicle headed their way. It seems like it happens out of nowhere when you are least expecting it. At least if you saw it coming, you would have had time to move out of the way, but unfortunately, in a collision, there is no way to change what took place. What you can change though is how to handle what has happened to you, by taking the proper legal steps to alleviate the pain and suffering you have sustained.

Not only does the state of Georgia have no tolerance for DUI, the Nick Schnyder Law Firm also has zero tolerance for drivers who destroy lives, along with establishments who serve them and send them away to drive. Injury and death are a common outcome of careless and negligent actions of those who place others in harm's way. Not only do at-fault drivers and their insurers need to be held accountable, there are other parties who can be held liable for an alcohol-related accident. These can include bartenders, bar owners, restaurants, liquor stores, party hosts serving alcohol, and also those who allow the drunk driver to operator a car, truck or motorcycle they own.

Bars, clubs, taverns, nightclubs, sports bars

Drunk Driving Signs & Symptoms
You may be able to avoid DUI accidents by spotting signs and symptoms of an intoxicated driver who is on the road or even at a crash scene. Attorney Nick Schnyder reminds us of these smart ways to alert us to look out for these dangerous drivers. Someone who has been consuming alcoholic beverages has a harder time with motor skills in operating a vehicle. You may see a car swerving within the lane or even going into other lanes. They may drive slower than normal and some may drive faster than the norm of traffic. Their attention is usually dulled as is their perception for responding to surrounding moving vehicles. You may even see them drinking while driving. One obvious sign is the smell of alcohol on their breath before entering or leaving their vehicle. They may be pulling out of a bar parking lot or other type of establishment that serves alcoholic drinks. At the scene of a wreck, you may see them stumble or have trouble walking. They can smell of alcohol or have bloodshot eyes. Those impaired by drugs may have red, droopy eyes and typically use eye whitening drops to conceal the redness. There may be others in the same car who are definitely drunk. Sandy Springs Police are keen at spotting signs and symptoms, but should you see an at fault driver with these signs, you need to inform the police officer, who will check them for alcohol abuse. Signs to watch out on all Georgia roads include:
Swerving down the road, unable to keep within the parameters of one lane.
Abnormally slow driving, or preoccupied behavior
May be speeding and disregarding traffic laws, stoplights and road signs
Smelling alcohol on a driver entering or exiting a car or truck, or riding a motorcycle
See them drinking inside the car or throwing a beer can out the window
Leaving an establishment that serves liquor and driving strangely
At scene of an accident, driver may exit vehicle stumbling or have a hard time walking
You may see them hide something in the car before police arrive
Passengers may be drunk or have open containers in the car
Slurred speech or erratic behavior, and not making sense
DUI driver may become argumentative or violent
Crash could turn into a hit and run, where the driver attempts to flee due to drinking
Drunk Driving Accident Prevention
We know drunk driving accidents can be deadly for everyone, and prevention is the key to stopping fatalities. Even though we take all the steps to prevent collisions and death, even with attorney intervention, there continue to be habitual offenders who continue to defy the law. All throughout the country, our laws have become stricter regarding DUI in hopes of discouraging people against negligence. Fines, jail time, community work, probation and school courses aren’t stopping many offenders in Sandy Springs. Taking away their driving privileges seems to help along with ignition locks to keep them from starting the car seem to be effective. Friends helping friends is important for those who go out to drink and take control when a patron has left an establishment unable to drive. There are many ways to continue to avoid alcohol related disasters in our community. Intervention from a lawyer can discourage those who drive under the influence, especially after an offender has a wakeup call after causing a severe injury or death of another. Family intervention and committing loved ones to local programs can be beneficial for some. Although it remains deadly, we all have to continue to fight to save lives. Prevention strategies for DUI include:
Enforcement of strict, no tolerance drunk driving laws.
Campaigns across the nation, including programs such as MADD, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, which create awareness for everyone.
Traffic checkpoints for sobriety performed by the police department throughout the city.
Removal of driving privileges and suspension of driver’s license.
