Our Law Firm has been informed that a LaGrange resident was killed Wednesday, March 2, 2011, after he was struck by car. News reports indicate that Christopher Morales, 23, was attempting to cross New Franklin Road with an unidentified companion when a car traveling northbound struck him. Mr. Morales was transported to West Georgia Medical Center where efforts to revive him were unsuccessful. No charges have been filed at this point but the investigation continues.
If the driver of the vehicle that hit Mr. Morales is, in fact, found to be responsible in causing this accident, Mr. Morale's family may seek to pursue a civil lawsuit against the at fault driver for the wrongful death of their family member. Mr. Morale's family is entitled to damages for the loss of their loved one, however, any recovery may ultimately depend upon the insurance coverage held by the at fault driver. It is, thus, critical that Mr. Morale's family enlist the assistance of legal counsel to assist them in this matter.
Our personal injury and wrongful death law firm has recovered millions of dollars for injured victims and their families who have lost a loved one at the fault of another. As such, we understand how difficult and traumatic this experience may be for Mr. Morale's family. We extend our sympathies and offer our legal assistance if needed.
