A Georgia accident victim who has been injured by a drunk driver, intoxicated driver or a driver under the influence of illegal drugs has options beyond those of other accident victims. Georgia law provides no caps on punitive damages for personal injury victims. Punitive damages are damages that punish an offending driver and deter similar conduct. Someone who is injured where no punitive behavior has occurred is entitled to special and general damages, but not punitive damages. Juries may seek to punish drunk drivers. That money goes to the victim and can often be substantial.
Georgia Drunk driving victims often suffer permanent, disabling spine injuries, burn injuries and other catastrophic injuries because drunk driving accidents often result from head on collisions. Charles Scholle is an experienced DUI accident victim attorney who can help victims of DUI accidents in Atlanta and Georgia.
Since 1995, Charles Scholle has fought for justice for Georgia families.
We care about our clients. Even though our practice areas are situational and often do not require repeat representation once a matter is resolved, we remain in contact with most of our past clients. Legal matters can be very stressful. They often raise uncomfortable realities causing one to make important life decisions at vulnerable moments. It is important to us that our clients feel they we stand by them every step of the way as counselors of the law.
Accordingly, we are able to focus our intellectual and financial resources on a few matters, maximizing the results, and ensuring a more satisfying representation for both the client and attorney.
We are passionate about the law and compassionate toward our clients. We understand the emotional uncertainty and economic hardship that can accompany unresolved legal issues. It can be a very helpless feeling. Our job is to combat that anxiety by educating our clients about how the law relates to their specific, personal factual situation. We work tirelessly to teach our clients, striving to make them feel less anxious and more confident and empowered. No lawyer can guarantee a specific outcome, but by taking the time to actively communicate and educate our clients, we allow them to worry less about their legal matters and concentrate more on their families, careers and day-to-day lives.
Powerful, well-funded forces are arrayed against Georgia citizens and families, whether they be business entities, insurance companies, government actors or quasi-governmental agencies. Our firm has excelled in defeating these forces through determination, resourcefulness and by simply working harder.
