Our Legal Take.
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the driver of the vehicle that struck Walter Seals is determined to be at fault, Mr. Seals’ family may seek justice and 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, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Mr. Seals’ 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.
