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, Samuel K. Atcheson may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for his injuries. Based upon its extensive experience and success handling these types of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Mr. Atcheson 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.
