A motor vehicle accident involving two vehicles caused injuries to two individuals early Monday morning, March 18, 2019.
According to AJC.com, an alleged intoxicated driver “was traveling west on Jimmy Carter Boulevard about 3 a.m. Sunday when his silver Lexus LS400 collided with a Toyota Corolla stopped at a light at the intersection with Singleton Road.” Both drivers were seriously injured and taken to area hospitals, according to the news report, and “[t]he driver of the Corolla, identified as 37-year-old Manuel Esteves-Sabino of Duluth, was declared brain-dead Monday.” GwinnettDailyPost.com is reporting that “[f]ollowing the preliminary investigation, [the Lexus driver] was charged with Reckless Driving, DUI, serious injury by vehicle and following too closely…On Monday, an additional charge — first degree homicide by vehicle — was added after Esteves-Sabino was pronounced brain dead.”
Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and depending on who is deemed to be at fault in causing the accident, the family of Manuel Esteves-Sabino 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. Esteves-Sabino’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.
