South Fulton News

A motor vehicle accident involving a minivan and a tractor-trailer tragically resulted in the loss of a life Tuesday afternoon, March 19, 2019.  Sadly, reports suggest that those who work in the area have been requesting the installation of a traffic signal for some time.

According to AJC.com, “[t]he wreck happened on Fulton Industrial Boulevard at Tradewater Parkway.”  The news story reports “the tractor-trailer was on Tradewater Parkway and was attempting to turn onto Fulton Industrial Boulevard to head north. However, it ended up stuck in the northbound lanes waiting for traffic to clear, which is when the minivan allegedly hit the side of the trailer.”  According to WSBtv.com, “Dwayne Burkholder, 48, was killed when he crashed into the tractor-trailer.” The truck driver “faces second-degree vehicular homicide, failure to yield and obstruction of an intersection charges,” per the report.

The WSBtv.com news story suggests that “people who work in the area…said this wouldn’t have happened if there were a traffic light there.”  One of those individuals told the news outlet that the intersection is “very dangerous. We sit here all the time, and every time, we’re the ones that call 911. And every time, we tell them, ‘We need a red light, we need a red light.'”

Our Legal Take

As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, the family of Dwayne Burkholder 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. Burkholder’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.

Did negligent security contribute to this shooting at a Peachtree Corners apartment complex and are justice and compensation available to the victims family?

PEACHTREE CORNERS NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Peachtree Corners, Georgia apartment complex early Thursday morning, March 21, 2019, leaving two men dead and one woman injured.  According to AJC.com, “[t]he victims, all members of the same family, were visiting a relative at the Park at Peachtree Corners Apartments in the 3300 block of Peachtree Corners Circle. They appeared to be washing clothes in the complex’s laundry facility before they were shot.”  WSBtv.comis reporting, “officers responded…around 4 a.m. Thursday.” The news story reports “[t]wo men died and a woman was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.”

No suspect is in custody at this time according to the media outlets.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Apartment residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the apartment complex and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access on to the property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victims family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss. 

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victims family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
