Wrongful death lawsuit an option after semi kills couple

Too often do family and friends have to say an earthly farewell to loved one because another person was negligent while driving. The option of filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the perpetrator is available in most cases of death due to negligent or reckless behavior. The family of a Georgia couple appear to have grounds to pursue financial damages from a wrongful death lawsuit after the death of a couple.

The husband and wife, both 71 years of age, were in their Ford F-150 and were traveling through an intersection when a semitrailer ran a stop sign. The pickup hit the side of the semi, causing the semi to roll on top of the pickup truck. The couple died upon impact.

Georgia State Patrol officials have not released details of the accident but state they are still investigating the matter. They indicated that charges will likely be issued to the 30-year-old semi-truck driver but give no word as to what they will be. It is unknown if the truck driver suffered any injuries in the crash.

In a time of grief it can be hard to make necessary decisions, but some cannot be put off because of time constraints. One of those would be to file a wrongful death lawsuit that, if awarded, can provide reimbursement for a number of expenses that arise due to a death under these circumstances. In addition to the time factor, there are several requirements that must be met when filing this type of lawsuit. A Georgia attorney will be able to give further detail on what a potential client can expect when seeking to recover financial compensation.
