Young Child Killed in DUI Accident

Driving under the influence can harm not just the person driving the car, but anyone who comes in their way while they are driving. A DUI crash can break up entire families, while leaving the survivors stuck in a mountain of debt that is almost impossible to get out from under. Where can you turn when this happens?

That is a question that the parents of an 8 month old in Smyrna who was killed are asking. The car carrying her, her sister, and their intoxicated mother hit a taxi cab on Windy Hill Road. A pet was also in the car, and none of the children were restrained. The driver of the taxi was also injured, although not seriously.

The death of a child is never easy, but the drunk driver could face other charges and settlements. Since she willingly put lives in danger, the driver of the taxi could seek damages against her to pay for his car that was totaled, any loss of income that he has, or any medical bills that accrue while he is recovering.

If you have ever been hit by a drunk driver, you know how frustrating the process can be. Dealing with insurance agents, lawyers, and police is a headache. Fortunately, by hiring a good Atlanta attorney you’ll have the ability to have someone at your side and fighting for you to get every penny that you should get in compensation.

The legal process doesn’t have to be handled alone. Lawyers from Stokes & Kopitsky are willing to do whatever it takes to protect you and give you everything you need to recover and get back on your feet after your life has been disrupted by someone else’s actions.
