Macon News

Joan and John Woodford, of Macon, were reportedly killed when their pickup truck collided with a tractor trailer Sunday afternoon, December 16, 2018.

According to The Union Recorder, the “fatal collision happened at the intersection of Vinson Highway, also known as GA Highway 112, and the Fall Line Freeway, near the Georgia Veterans Memorial Cemetery..”

Georgia State Patrol told The Macon Telegraph, a “tractor trailer traveling south on Ga. 112 ran the stop sign at the GA. 243 intersection and was struck in the left side by the Woodfords’ Ford F-150.” The tractor trailer subsequently “overturned onto the pickup.”

Our Legal Take

As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the tractor trailer driver is found to be at fault, the family of Mr. and Mrs. Woodford may elect to file civil claims in their wrongful deaths.

Based upon its experience and success handling motor vehicle accident claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the Woodford family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the vehicles and roadways involved and a review of traffic surveillance footage will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.

The Murray Law Firm is taking an active role to curb a practice commonly known as “ambulance chasing.” In each of our blogs, we are informing our readers that, pursuant to the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct, a lawyer or anyone acting on behalf of a lawyer may not engage a potential client “through direct personal contact or through live telephone contact.”

As a personal injury and wrongful death law firm, we have long been aware of the unscrupulous practices of some attorneys in this field who use unethical and illegal measures to obtain clientele.

SAC EM Square.jpgThe immoral practices of a few have, unfortunately, given rise to a public distrust of many. The term ‘ambulance chaser’ has become synonymous with a field of law, which at its best, exists solely to empower people over corporations and insurance companies, to serve those harmed by the negligence of others and to guide everyday citizens to justice through what is often a daunting and complex legal system.

We are saddened to acknowledge that some in the field have tarnished this noble mission through a violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct, which is why we are proud to announce we are taking an active approach to ridding our community of those firms and attorneys that would harm the people and practice, which we care for so deeply.

The Murray Law Firm has achieved the Martindale Hubbell AV Preeminent rating, an honor achieved by meeting the highest ethical standards in our field, as attested to by judges and other attorneys who serve to better the practice.

In support of our commitment to high moral and ethical practices, in 2013 The Murray Law Firm created the S.A.C.’EM Campaign (Stop Ambulance Chasing Ethical Movement), which is committed to rooting out lawyers who violate Rule 7.3 of the Georgia Rules of Professional Conduct. Together, with our clients, the State Bar of Georgia and fellow attorneys committed to the highest ethical integrity, we will fight to stop this unethical practice that has become an epidemic in the legal profession.

If you have been injured and have been directly contacted by a lawyer or an individual acting on behalf of a lawyer, please notify The Murray Law Firm at 888.842.1616 and we will assist you in reporting the lawyer or individual to the appropriate authority.
