Are Bar Owners Liable for Drunk Customers?

Published on May 31, 2018 at 6:08 pm in Car Accidents.

Georgia code section 51-1-40 allows an injured person to hold a seller of alcohol responsible if the establishment willingly, knowingly, or unlawfully serves alcohol to someone under the age of 21, knowingly serves alcohol to an intoxicated person, or knows the minor or intoxicated person will soon be driving a car.

The owner of a bar, restaurant, liquor store, or other establishment can be sued if one of their intoxicated patrons causes a car accident.  These kinds of cases are governed by “dram shop law” which deals with personal injuries that happen because alcohol was involved.  All states have dram shop laws.

Tips for New Drivers: Learning to Drive on Highways

Published on May 24, 2018 at 6:26 pm in Car Accidents.

 

When teenagers get their license, it doesn’t mean they’re ready to take off and drive whenever they want. They need to have a strong foundation of practice and education so they’re prepared for the road. There are plenty of ways to help teenagers learn how to drive on highways, but it doesn’t have to be a difficult experience. A combination of time with a driving instructor and practice with a parent or guardian will make teens ready to drive on highways.

Without proper instruction, teenagers can get into car accidents. They don’t have experience and may not know how to respond to situations on the road. Hours of practice with a helpful, experienced driver will benefit them and everyone else on the road.

Georgia’s U-Turn Laws

Published on May 10, 2018 at 8:58 pm in Car Accidents.

U-turns may not be the most common driving maneuver—you don’t learn it for your driver’s test. When you have to pull a U-turn, you may not know that it’s probably more difficult than you expected. You need to be attentive of how traffic is flowing in both directions and if you have enough space and time to safely make the turn.

While there are clear rules in Georgia that define what makes a U-turn illegal or legal, not everyone may know where and when they can make a U-turn. It’s important to know which maneuvers are legal not only to follow traffic laws, but to increase road safety.

If you’ve been injured because of someone making a U-turn, you can seek legal aid. An Atlanta car accident lawyer from Bey & Associates will fight for your rights and get you the compensation you deserve. We’ve proudly helped Georgia citizens get justice for years and have the experience and skill in these types of cases. Your attorney will work tirelessly to get you a favorable settlement.

How Good Are Atlanta’s Drivers Compared to Other Drivers?

Published on Apr 26, 2018 at 4:27 pm in Car Accidents.

No matter where you are from, everyone has an opinion about the drivers in their city and in the cities they visit across the country.  Stereotypes exist nationwide when it comes to the expected behavior of drivers in different areas across the country.  Southerners think northerners drive too fast, and northerners think southerners drive too slowly.  Drivers in west coast beach towns drive distracted, while drivers in big east-coast cities are in too big of a hurry.

You may think your town is one of the safer places to drive, or you may admit that it is dangerous. But what do the statistics say?

A recent study on QuoteWizard.com used 2 million driver data points to determine which of America’s 75 most populous metro city areas have the best and worst driving record.  Using statistics from accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, and citations, QuoteWizard ranked each US city from worst to best.  Meaning, topping the list this time is NOT a good thing.
