In most cases in which a driver is drunk and causes an accident, the drunk driver's insurance company is liable for the compensation owed to accident victims. Other factors influencing which party or parties are liable include:

  • A licensed establishment serving alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person
  • A homeowner hosting a private party at which alcohol and/or drugs are furnished
  • An adult providing alcohol or drugs to a minor who then causes injury

Gary Martin Hays is deeply involved in keeping drunk drivers off Georgia streets and highways, having served on the state advisory council for Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) in Georgia. Gary Martin Hays & Associates has been the title sponsor of Strides for Change, a fundraiser to support the many programs of M.A.D.D. in Georgia.
