Our law firm has learned of a tragic accident occurring on I-285 in South Fulton County on Wednesday, June 8, 2011, which has claimed the life of an innocent motorcyclist. A woman lost her life when the motorcycle on which she was a passenger rear-ended a Ford Expedition as it was stopping to yield to a motorist with a flat tire. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, and the accident remains under investigation.
The family of the victim has a right to pursue a civil lawsuit against the at fault driver for the wrongful death of their family member. Given our firm's experience in these types of cases, we understand that the pursuit of a civil claim against the at-fault driver is certainly of little priority at this difficult time. It is important, however, that a competent law firm be retained quickly to ensure that any evidence relating to the incident remains preserved and that the family's interests are protected. Our law firm has represented many families who have lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident such as this one, and we have recovered substantial awards for our Clients in the process. We have too often seen evidence critical to a civil claim destroyed by adverse parties who take advantage of a grieving family, and we hope that such a circumstance does not occur in this matter.
We extend our sympathies to the family of the victim, and offer our legal experience if needed.
