Our Legal Take
As the details of this accident continue to develop, and if the dump truck driver is determined to be at fault, the victims may elect to seek justice and file civil claims for their injuries. Based upon its extensive experience and success handling these types of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the victims should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. As multiple injuries resulted from this accident, there will likely be competing claims for any available insurance proceeds. Thus, it is imperative that legal representation is secured without delay.
