Passenger dies in car accident on I-85

Hundreds of news sources all over the country have daily reports of vehicular accidents. Sometimes an SUV, 18-wheeler or car accident may just be a fender-bender with minor or no injuries. But another can be catastrophic, adversely impacting a number of people. A Georgia woman died in a recent car accident, and the person believed responsible has been arrested.

The 41-year-old woman was just one of several passengers in a car as it was traveling on Interstate 85. A report stated the driver of the car lost control of the vehicle when she was changing lanes ahead of a semitrailer. The car came to a stop in a lane of traffic and was struck by the tractor-trailer. The truck driver tried to stop but was unable to avoid hitting the door on the rear passenger side.

The impact of the collision killed the woman and injured three other passengers. All three are expected to recover. Police discovered the driver did not have a valid driver's license, and she was charged with failure to maintain a lane as well as second-degree homicide by vehicle.

When grief overcomes family members after a sudden loss due to a car accident, the pain is often so intense it can be hard to take the next steps to move on. When the emotions have time to settle, the need for some type of action, often in the form of a wrongful death lawsuit, may emerge. Should that be the option a family chooses to explore, a sympathetic Georgia attorney will guide his or her clients in the pursuit of financial compensation.
