Steps After a Rockmart Drunk Driving Collision
The number one rule is never admit fault. Infact, you should avoid speaking with the drunk driver, if possible.
Some basic steps you should take after any motor vehicle collision include:
STEP 1: Communication & Notification. Notify 911 or local authorities immediately after the collision and stay at the scene. Call loved ones so they can help with personal belongings, your vehicle, and medical treatment. Notify your car insurance, health insurance, primary care physician, and employer.
STEP 2: Take Care of Your Health. Your health should be one of your highest priorities. Seek treatment at an ER or urgent care facility. After that, schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. Be disciplined – follow all treatment plans and take all medication, as prescribed.
STEP 3: Keep Written Records. Keep track of names, telephone numbers, and important documents. This includes witnesses, treatment facilities, insurance carrier and adjusters, claim numbers, policy numbers, and other important people. Important documents include the police report, receipts, and photographs of the property damage and your physical injuries.

Your Heath & Medical Treatment.
Your Primary Focus.
When you hire our Rockmart DUI victim attorney, our goal is to make your health your sole focus.
We try to do this by taking on most of the other daily tasks. Your treatment and health are too important. You don’t need to be distracted from taking care of yourself.
Unrepresented injury victims often fall into the trap of trying to re-invent the wheel – they avoid or delay medical treatment, thinking they can “tough it out” or believing they can trust an insurance adjuster. Or, they don’t let a doctor manage their treatment plan, but instead they make medical decisions for themselves or from recommendations of friends and family.
It’s important to trust the doctors. Your health depends on it. And timely identifying and treating your injuries is they key to a quick and speedy recovery. (Medical Treatment FAQ).
Experienced Representation Matters
Special laws can apply to a drunk driving crash case. These laws are complex.
For instance, anyone who “knowingly sold, furnished, or served” alcohol to the driver could share in responsibility. Applying these legal principles is not always straightforward because “knowingly” is a fact-intensive and difficult element to prove. It will likely require thorough investigation, timely interview of witnesses, as well as prompt preservation and inspection of evidence.
An experienced drunk driving injury victim lawyer can help you obtain some initial relief through the Crime Victim Compensation Program. Additionally, knowledgeable legal representation can help with other damages and compensation. (Compensation & Damages FAQ). Some of these items of damages can include:
Past and Future Medical Expenses (Medical Expenses FAQ);
Past and Future Lost Wages (Lost Wages FAQ);
Past and Future Pain and Suffering (Pain & Suffering FAQ).
Or, in more unfortunate causes, we can help obtain the full value of the life of a loved one lost in a DUI collision. (Wrongful Death Overview FAQ). The spouse of a DUI injury victim may also be entitled to damages as well. (Loss of Consortium FAQ).
