A motor vehicle accident tragically claimed the life of one and injured two others, Friday, February 8, 2019.
WRBL.com is reporting the accident happened on “GA-109 approaching the intersection with Rock Mills Road around 1 p.m.” The report indicates that ‘[a] Chevy Tahoe…reportedly ran a stop sign on Rock Mills Road [before striking a Scion XB in which]…44-year-old George Green” was a passenger. Tragically, Mr. Green life was lost in this incident. Mr. Green’s wife and son were also in the Scion, and the news outlet reports that they “were airlifted to Atlanta for treatment [and that]…both are recovering well.”
The accident is still under investigation.
Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the operator of the Chevy Tahoe is deemed to be at fault in causing the accident, the family of George Green may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for his wrongful death. Additionally, his wife and child may individually pursue legal 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 Mr. Green’s family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. 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 any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
