Twiggs County, GA – Teen Killed in Car Accident
Twiggs County, GA (December 9, 2022) – An accident that occurred on Wednesday night in Twiggs County resulted in the death of a teen.
The fatal collision took place on westbound Interstate 16 close to Georgia State Route 112.
According to the Georgia State Patrol, the driver of a jeep rear-ended another vehicle.
The passenger in the vehicle that was struck by the jeep was a 19-year-old who was killed in the collision. The driver of the car was taken to a trauma center and her condition is unknown at this time.
The driver of the jeep did not sustain any serious injuries in the accident.
The Georgia State Patrol reported that the accident is still under investigation.
I met with Harry Brown personally and he sat with me for 20 minutes at our initial consultation to explain everything. He even called after my surgery to see how I was doing. I met with him several more times after that and was kept informed about my case throughout. I highly recommend Harry Brown as an attorney.
Fatal Car Accidents in Georgia
The news that a loved one has died as a result of severe injuries sustained in a car accident is never something anyone wants to hear.
The turmoil that follows the death of a loved one in a car accident can leave a family emotionally and financially devastated.
A person who is injured in a car accident caused by a negligent driver has the legal right to file a personal injury claim for compensation against the at-fault driver. They are entitled to reimbursement for any expenses incurred as a direct result of the incident.
On the other hand, when accident victims die as a result of their injuries, their families have the legal right to file a wrongful death claim against the driver who caused the accident. In this way, the family of the deceased can obtain justice for their lost loved one.
A family can file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek financial compensation for funeral expenses and emotional distress caused by the untimely death of a loved one.
When someone else’s negligence causes the death of a family member in a car accident, negotiating a settlement with an insurance company or filing a wrongful death lawsuit is the last thing on your mind. However, it is critical to remember that you only have a certain amount of time, known as the statute of limitations, to file a wrongful death claim.
When you hire a Wrongful Death Lawyer to represent you in your claim, they will ensure that you receive compensation for the following:
- Funeral and Burial Expenses
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Loss of Future Income
- Loss of Consortium
- Emotional Trauma
If a loved one was killed in a car accident, you should seek legal counsel from a Wrongful Death Attorney. Receiving compensation without the assistance of an attorney can be difficult.
