Private Utility Truck Kills Mother, Injures Child

By Grant Law Office on December 8, 2014 - Comments off

In Stone Mountain, a fatal accident occurred involving a mother and a child on Durham Park Road, near the Indian Creek MARTA station. According to authorities, a private utility truck struck a mother who was walking with her child across the street. The mother was killed and the child was transported to a nearby hospital with serious injuries. The scene remains under investigation.

Criminal charges are not expected to be filed in this situation, despite the insufferable harm  that was caused by this incident. This may seem especially unjust. However, the offending party can still be held responsible in a civil action which seeks fair compensation for the child’s injuries and the mother’s wrongful death.

Where a criminal conviction would require proof “beyond a reasonable doubt,” in a civil action, the suing party need only  prove that negligence of the at-fault driver more likely than not caused or  contributed to the accident. Once this is established, the family can secure compensation for things like funeral costs, pain and suffering and wrongful death damages (which include items such as lost income). Families that come to us seek justice for their loss. Through the process of holding the wrongdoer responsible, families can begin to put together the pieces of their lives and achieve closure..

If you feel that you may have a valid wrongful death claim, seek the strong legal representation you need and deserve to help you with this process. The Georgia wrongful death attorneys at the Grant  Law Office can help families get fair compensation for the loss of their loved ones.
