Voted Best Personal Injury Law Firm By Georgia Lawyers
Atlanta Drunk Driving Accident Lawyers
I called Matt after several people recommended him. He was very kind and did a very good job on my son’s case. We are very thankful for the work he did. Most importantly, he was never hard to reach and answered every question we had while going through the process. Matt is the only attorney I will ever call in the future.
My husband is a cyclist that did not fair well against an SUV recently. Matt and his team took phenomenal care of us, allowing us not to stress out (too much) about the little things. Matt and his team handled everything with professionalism. We know we made the right call.
So glad I hired this firm after my rearend car accident. Matt embodies the skill set and values I was looking for. He treats every case like a mini war, and was a zealous advocate on my behalf. And he did so in the most competent and skillful manner. He listened, was empathetic and understood my legal and nonlegal problems.
My 85-year old mom was in a motor vehicle accident with an uninsured motorist. His love, thoroughness and commitment to her case helped us through this accident and her cancer treatment. She underwent successful lobectomy and chemotherapy and is doing exceptionally well. We are immensely grateful.
It was important to me to get the maximum money I could for my broken neck and arm. After getting jerked around for months by State Farm, I interviewed several firms and chose Mr. Wetherington. I’m glad I did. He forced the insurance company to pay twenty times their last offer to me.
It is an honor to share my experience with Mr. Wetherington. He was able to get answers about what happened in my son’s wreck that other attorney’s were not able to do. I am so thankful for the work that he did and he was very thorough in his explanation of why the vehicle had a “defect.”
My case did not settle. The person that hit me only had minimal policy limits. Fortunately, I had my own insurance, which should have provided more money. My insurance company, Allstate, treated me like garbage. We had to sue them and go all the way to trial, which we won.

Drunk Driving Remains a Serious Safety Problem in Georgia
Drunk driving is extraordinarily dangerous. Sadly, it remains a very serious safety hazard in Georgia. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that more than 350 people are killed in DUI accidents in the state each year. Many more people suffer serious or catastrophic drunk driving accident injuries.
An Overview of DUI Accident Claims in Georgia
Drunk driving is a criminal offense. The intoxicated driver who causes a crash will likely face a serious criminal charge. That being said, the criminal case will not get you financial compensation as an injured victim. You need to bring a civil DUI accident claim to get justice for you and your family. The criminal case is a separate matter—though it could serve as evidence to support your civil claim. An Atlanta DUI accident lawyer will help you navigate the civil claims process.
Recovering Compensation After an Accident With a Drunk Driver
DUI accidents should never happen. Victims and their families deserve justice and maximize financial compensation. Our Atlanta DUI accident lawyer goes above and beyond to get victims’ accountability. After a DUI crash, victims may be entitled to recover compensation for:
- Vehicle repairs or replacement;
- Emergency medical treatment;
- Hospital bills and other medical costs;
- Loss of current and future wages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental anguish;
- Long-term disability;
- Physical scarring; and
- Wrongful death.
In Georgia, personal injury compensation is equivalent to the actual economic and non-economic losses suffered by the victim. However, as drunk driving is gross negligence, additional financial compensation in the form of punitive damages may sometimes be recovered in these cases.
