Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and dependent upon who is deemed at fault, the family of Charles Bailey may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for their loss. In addition, the injured victim may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for injuries. The Murray Law Firm has had extensive and successful experience representing victims of motor vehicle claims in Georgia and the legal team at the firm suggests that Mr. Bailey’s family should retain a law firm without delay to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation and the preservation of any and all evidence. Photographs of the roadways and vehicles involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before this evidence is damaged or destroyed.
