Our Legal Take
As the details of this accident continue to develop, the victim’s family may elect to file civil claims seeking substantial compensation for their injuries. The Murray Law Firm has had extensive and successful experience representing victims of motor vehicle claims in Georgia, and the legal team at the firm suggests that the victim’s family should retain a law firm without delay to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation and the preservation of any and all evidence. 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 this evidence is damaged or destroyed. Under Georgia Workers’ Compensation laws, our legal team suggests that the victim’s family will also most likely be entitled to significant compensation as a result of this work accident as well.
