Valdosta, GA – A Crash Involving 4 Vehicles Leaves 1 Dead and Three Injured
Valdosta, Georgia (June 16, 2023) – A four-vehicle crash occurred Thursday morning in Valdosta, killing one person and injuring three others.
According to the Valdosta Police Department, officers responded to the 1000 block of East Hill Avenue around 6 a.m. Thursday morning after a citizen called to report an accident involving four vehicles.
Officers arrived to find one of the vehicles was an overturned tractor-trailer hauling logs. The log truck had collided with a pickup truck, according to VPD.
The pickup truck driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Three other people were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
According to VPD, the road was closed for several hours so that the vehicles and logs could be removed.
The Valdosta Police Department is still investigating the circumstances surrounding the accident.
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
Many people’s worst nightmare is learning that a close friend or relative has been killed or seriously injured in a car accident. A loved one’s death in an accident is likely to cause financial and emotional hardship.
A person who is injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence has the legal right to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation. They are entitled to compensation for any direct expenses incurred as a result of the accident.
If an accident victim dies as a result of their injuries, the surviving family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
A wrongful death lawsuit may be filed by the family to seek financial compensation for funeral expenses and emotional distress caused by their loved one’s untimely death.
When a family member dies as a result of someone else’s negligence, the last thing on your mind is probably settling an insurance claim or filing a wrongful death lawsuit. However, because the statute of limitations severely limits your time to file a wrongful death claim, you should always act quickly.
A Wrongful Death Lawyer will make certain that you receive compensation for the following:
- Funeral and Burial Expenses
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
