CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - A civil DUI injury case in Chatham County has brought a $1.1 million verdict in court.
The jury reached that verdict Monday. This case stemmed from a September 2015 head-on crash that severely injured a woman.
The other driver was drunk.
Attorney Jamie Casino represented the plaintiff in this case, and he say this sends a message to everyone in Chatham County.
"If you're going to drive drunk in Chatham County there is going to be a serious price to pay; regardless if there is a death, regardless if there is a permanent injury," said Casino. "It's just not going to happen here. They came back with a $1.1 million verdict."
A reminder to everyone to stop and think before you get behind the wheel of a car. Don't drink and drive.
