Holding drunk drivers accountable for more than two decades

By Butler Prather LLP on July 22, 2016

While most of us would prefer not to think about it, we regularly share the roads and highways with impaired drivers. One needn’t look any further than the Monday morning news headlines for proof of this fact, as there will inevitably be a multitude of truly tragic stories outlining drunk driving accidents both here in Georgia and across the nation.

As distressing as all this can be, it doesn’t — and shouldn’t — stop us from going out on the weekends, driving at night or traveling over some of the more raucous holidays.

However, what if the unimaginable does happen — a drunk driver fell asleep at the wheel and crossed the centerline, or failed to stop in time for a red light — and either you or a loved one is left with serious and potentially debilitating injuries?

Suddenly, you will find yourself confronted with a host of uncertainties:

  • How will we cover these medical expenses?
  • What if I can’t go back to work?
  • Who will pay for my rehabilitation costs?
  • When do I start involving the insurance company?

At Butler Prather LLP, we have the experience, skill and resources to not only answer all of your questions, but prepare and develop a compelling case designed to hold the drunk driver accountable for all of the harm they’ve caused you and your loved ones.

Rest assured, that we will handle all legal matters while you focus your time and energy on what matters most: your recovery from your physical and mental trauma.

I was in a complex premises liability case involving a multinational corporations. Mr. Butler & his associates were always three steps ahead of these defendants. When they say they are "exceptional trial lawyers," this is not just a slogan but it is a way of life.”
