On the early morning of January 27, a poultry truck transporting live chickens was overturned in a collision that took place on Highway 129 at Lenox Drive, according to a report by

An official with the Georgia State Patrol said the crash, which occurred east of Gainesville, was caused by a 76-year-old man, a deputy with the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, who drove his vehicle into the path of the poultry-carrying truck. He was going to work when the accident happened.

The drivers of both vehicles, including the 43-year-old male driver of the poultry tractor trailer, sustained only minor injuries.

The deputy has been charged with failure to yield when entering or crossing a roadway. Authorities were forced to shut down the entire highway momentarily to clear the debris and collect the chickens that had dispersed around the accident site.

If you have been injured in an auto accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the liable party for the damages you have suffered. The compensation may include both economic and non-economic damages. Before you receive any amount, however, you will first need to establish liability; in other words, you will need to identify the guilty party and prove that they were at fault.

The liable party does not necessarily have to be another motorist. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, the liable party may be an automobile manufacturer or even a government entity. You will need the assistance of an experienced personal injury attorney if you want to present a strong claim case.
