Motor vehicle accidents can change a life in an instant. They can leave families with so many questions as they struggle to deal with the aftermath. When a car accident results in injury or death, victims and their loved ones can have their entire world turned upside down. This may be the case in the recent death of a Georgia man who was the victim of a head-on collision.
Officials say that the accident occurred on a recent morning. A westbound car on a local road veered into oncoming traffic. The car struck an eastbound vehicle, head-on. The driver in the eastbound car died instantly on the scene. The woman believed responsible for the accident was rushed to a local hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
At this time, investigators are still attempting to determine exactly what caused the crash. There is no word on whether impairment or distraction was a factor in this accident. At this time, no criminal charges have been filed.
A car accident like this one here in Georgia reminds us how precious life is. The surviving families of fatal car crash victims may be entitled to file wrongful death claims against the parties deemed responsible. A successfully presented claim may result in a judgment for monetary damages that can be used to cover any financial losses the family may be facing after an unexpected loss, such as funeral costs, outstanding medical bills and lost income. Though events like this are tragic, there are ways for families to move forward.
