Man Killed in Gainesville Car Accident

By Grant Law Office on July 12, 2012

A 77-year-old man was killed in a Georgia car accident involving a collision with a truck. According to a news report in Access North Georgia, the fatal truck accident occurred on Thompson Bridge Road north of Mount Vernon Road in Gainesville. Officials say an oncoming truck struck the victim’s vehicle as it pulled out of a shopping center. He succumbed to his injuries two days later. The driver of the truck suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the crash. It is unclear which motorist was responsible for the collision.

It is common for car accidents to result from a failure to yield the right of way when entering traffic from a private drive. Under Georgia Statute 40-6-73: “The driver of a vehicle about to enter or cross a roadway from any place other than another roadway shall yield the right of way to all vehicles approaching on the roadway to be entered or crossed.” Drivers who fail to yield the right of way when entering traffic may be held accountable for the damages they cause.

The family of someone killed in a Georgia car accident would be well advised to discuss their legal rights and options by contacting an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney. If it is determined that the at-fault driver was negligent at the time of the crash, then financial compensation may be available for the family’s tragic loss.
