Fatal Car Accidents in Georgia

Every month, hundreds of individuals are killed in fatal car accidents caused by others in the state of Georgia. Intersections are some of the most dangerous places on our roads and where a large number of fatal accidents happen each year. In fact, it is estimated that about 20% of fatal accidents occur at intersections every year and Georgia is no stranger to these collisions. Most intersection accidents can be prevented when drivers are paying close attention to the roads around them. However, drivers still engage in negligent acts every day that lead to these collisions. If you have lost someone close to you in an accident, you should be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can trust. 

Wrongful death claims are known for being some of the most complex claims that attorneys handle each year. These claims can be brought by any of the following parties: 

  • The decedent’s spouse
  • Their child
  • Their parents
  • Their personal representative of the estate

This means that, if your best friend passed away in an accident, you will likely not be able to bring a claim unless they have stated otherwise. You will need solid evidence when moving forward with a wrongful death case. This is why you should never delay and should speak with a Columbus wrongful death attorney as soon as possible.
