Motorcycle accident leaves two dead in Georgia

You read about it all the time and hear about it happening to others, but it doesn't feel real. Now, like a nightmare you cannot wake from, it has suddenly happened to you. Motorcycle drivers and their passengers are losing their lives or livelihoods by drunk, negligent or otherwise reckless drivers. State police confirmed that a recent motorcycle versus car wreck in Whitfield County ended in the tragic death of both the driver and the passenger of the motorcycle. The motorcycle's operator likely didn't stand a chance to avoid the accident, as an allegedly drunk driver swerved into the oncoming path of the motorcycle, resulting in a head-on collision. Even worse, the alleged instigator of the accident was reportedly operating the vehicle on a suspended license and was arrested for that crime as well as a DUI charge.

Who Can I Sue in a Truck Accident?

There are an overwhelming number of factors involved in a truck accident. In most cases, investigators will need to look at what each driver involved was doing leading up to the crash.

Help in your time of need

There is no hurt more painful in this world than the loss of a loved one. The struggle can be difficult even when the person died of natural causes at an old age. But when a person is taken from your life rapidly and unexpectedly, your own pain can be debilitating. Seeking financial retribution and justice may not be the first priority you have, but your situation may necessitate it. In addition to the emotional devastation, you are likely to face a financial fallout in a contagion-like domino effect. The vehicle is likely gone or in need of costly repairs. There is a loss of income, medical bills, extremely costly funeral expenses, counseling and even your inability to return to the mundane tasks of life. Plus, your own job can add to your stress and your need for financial options. Financial concerns should not be your largest challenge at this…
