Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, and if the Honda driver is found to be at fault, the family of Teresa Owen Gracia may elect to file civil claims in her wrongful death.
Based upon its experience and success handling pedestrian claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the Gracia family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the vehicles and roadways involved and a review of traffic surveillance footage will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
