A motor vehicle accident involving a vehicle and an asphalt crew tragically resulted in the death of a young man Tuesday morning, May 14, 2019.
According to WSBtv.com, “[a]n asphalt worker was hit and killed while working on Tara Boulevard in Clayton County…the asphalt company was paving Tara Boulevard between Lovejoy and McDonough when the crash happened.” According to the news story, “[p]olice identified the worker as Justin Bagley, 28.” The driver of the vehicle that hit Mr. Bagley did stay on the scene and according to the report, charges are pending against the driver.
Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, the family of Justin Bagley may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for their loss. Based upon its extensive experience and success handling these types of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Mr. Bagley’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. Under Georgia Workers’ Compensation laws, our legal team suggests that the family of Justin Bagley will also most likely be entitled to significant compensation as a result of this work accident as well.
