Teenage Girl Killed in Douglas County Car Crash

By Grant Law Office on October 30, 2013

A report by CBS Atlanta states that a 13-year-old girl lost her life in a two-vehicle crash on the afternoon of October 20. The tragic incident took place on I-20 near the Fairburn Road exit.

According to police officials, the teenage girl, who was a passenger, and two of her family members were heading west when another vehicle attempted to enter their lane and collided into the side of their vehicle. This caused them to careen off road into a wooded area. Their vehicle struck several trees.

The female driver sustained severe injuries upon ejection from the vehicle. A male passenger suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Both adults were taken to Atlanta Medical Center by air transport.

Officers discovered the teenage girl inside the vehicle. She was declared dead at the scene.

Attorney Wayne Grant and the legal team at The Law Offices of Wayne Grant, P.C. offer their condolences to the family and friends of this young woman whose life was needlessly taken in a seemingly preventable accident. They also hope that the other two victims fully recover from their injuries.

Tens of thousands of lives are lost each year due to auto accidents. In spite of established road laws and safety guidelines, many motorists fail to drive responsibly and cause undue harm to others. Depending on the facts and circumstances of the incident, punitive damages may be appropriate. The loved ones of a fatal car crash victim have the right to file a wrongful death suit and pursue compensation from the liable party. They may recover not only economic damages, but also intangible damages, such as loss of quality of life.
