Man facing charges after woman's death in car accident

It does not take but a moment's distraction for a motor vehicle to cause some serious damage. Just a split second of taking eyes off the road can result in a car accident where someone is killed or critically injured. A Georgia man faces numerous charges concerning a car accident that claimed the life of a 42-year-old woman.

The woman was headed west in her sedan when an SUV traveling east crossed over the centerline into oncoming traffic. The head-on collision killed the woman. The SUV driver and his female passenger were also injured and taken to an area medical facility, but they are both expected to make a complete recovery.

The man turned himself in to the county authorities and has been charged with reckless driving, vehicular homicide and improper use of a seat belt. Reportedly, there are other unspecified charges pending against him. At the time of a report on the accident, no bond had been set.

In similar cases, the family of the deceased victim has sought legal recourse by pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit against the party deemed responsible. Taking this type of legal action often gives these families some measure of justice, with a financial award helping pay bills that may have been generated by the loss of their loved one. A Georgia attorney who has extensive experience in representing the legal interests of grieving families after a fatal car accident will be able to explain the laws of the state as they pertain to the particular circumstances presented.
