Fatal accidents likely after use of alcohol, drugs

It seems there are a number of people who think the rules of the road do not apply to them. Distracted driving, drug use or alcohol consumption before driving or otherwise negligent behavior behind the wheel are all causes of fatal accidents on Georgia roadways. A manĀ faces multiple charges after causing one of the state's most recent fatal accidents.

The man and a friend were headed south when his 2007 Chevrolet sedan left the road. After hitting some trees, the car went spinning back onto the road and hit another vehicle going north. Rescue personnel found the man injured and his friend dead when they arrived at the scene. There was no mention of any injuries to the occupants of the second vehicle.

The man was taken to a local hospital. However, he left the hospital before the admission process was completed. U.S. Marshals located and arrested him on numerous charges ,including homicide by vehicle and drug and alcohol use. There has been no bail set as he awaits in the county jail for further legal action.

Because of this man's negligent and perhaps reckless actions, a family grieves the loss of someone they love. Funeral and burial costs can be quite significant. Financial damages for emotional suffering as well as other documented financial losses may be available via a wrongful death lawsuit in cases of fatal accidents. A skilled Georgia attorney can build a sound case based upon the gathered evidence in the pursuit of a monetary judgment.
