A motor vehicle accident tragically claimed the life of Larry Sawyer, 35, early Sunday morning, February 3, 2019 according to published reports.
According to AJC.com, authorities indicate that “[a] Virginia man putting gas into his vehicle on the side of I-285 was hit early Sunday morning and killed.” The paper reports that “[t]he man, identified by the Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office as 35-year-old Larry Sawyer of Radford [Virginia], was stopped on the right shoulder of I-285 North near the Bolton Road exit about 4:30 a.m. when a vehicle rear-ended his.”
The news organization further indicates that officers have initially concluded that driver of the vehicle that hit Mr. Radford “was determined to be at fault.”
Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if further investigation confirms that the driver who struck Larry Sawyer was at fault, Mr. Sawyer’s family may elect to file civil claims for his wrongful death. 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 Mr. Sawyer’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.
