Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, the family of Erica Everett may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for her wrongful death. Additionally, any injured survivors of this accident may pursue legal claims for their injuries. Based upon its extensive experience and success handling these types of motor vehicle claims in Georgia and the Atlanta area, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the Ms. Everett’s family, as well as the other victims of the incident, 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.
