Woman Files Lawsuit After Son Injured in Car Accident

The negligence of one person can have a ripple effect, resulting in adverse consequences for a number of people. One person not paying attention to what he or she is doing while driving can lead to permanent injury, death, and even lawsuits. A Georgia woman has filed a wrongful death lawsuit after her son was seriously injured in a car accident. Just over two years ago, the woman was turning off a highway into a private driveway when a school bus slammed into the rear of the car behind her, pushing that car into the rear of her vehicle. A report did not detail all of the injuries to the woman's son, only that there were several, including traumatic injury to his brain. There was also no mention of the child's present mental and physical condition. The attorney the woman retained has requested a jury trial to determine damages for all…

Freak Car Accident Kills Woman Walking Her Dog

Many vehicular accidents can be avoided, simply by keeping cars and trucks properly maintained. Some car accidents may be attributed to faulty manufacturing and no recall on the parts involved, but some can be the result of owner irresponsibility for improper care of their vehicle. A car accident involving a loose tire resulted in the death of a Georgia pedestrian. The 22-year-old woman left her house around 9 p.m. to walk her dog. Her family grew concerned when she did not return from a walk that normally took around 20 minutes. When her dog came home without her nearly 45 minutes later, they went to look for her and found her lying on the ground, face-down. Emergency personnel transported her to a nearby hospital, where she was pronounced deceased. Police determined the woman had been hit in the head with a tire from a vehicle that had been traveling on the road…

Man Sentenced After Causing Death of Friend in Car Accident

Although it seems most drivers charged with DUI are younger, there is not an age limit to this type offense. Anyone of any age who drinks, drives and causes a car accident that results in death or serious injuries can be sentenced to serve time in jail, time on probation and/or be subject to other penalties. Meanwhile, there are numerous families facing futures without someone they love because of the negligent choices of others. A Georgia man has been sentenced for causing the death of a friend in a car accident because he chose to drive drunk. Nearly two years ago, the 61-year-old man chose to drive, not only after he had been drinking but also after he had taken an antihistamine that only served to increase the magnitude of his impairment. According to investigation reports, he was going nearly 50 mph over the posted speed limit when his car went off…

Drunk Driving Allegedly Cause of Young Girl’s Death

To lose a loved one is hard on family and friends. To suddenly lose that family member because someone else decided to drink and drive is heartbreaking. Despite all the efforts to stamp out drunk driving, it remains a critical problem. One family will face the holidays without the exuberance of an 11-year-old girl who was recently killed as a result of drunk driving, according to Georgia police. Police say a 27-year-old woman who had been drinking collided with another car. Inside that car were the young girl, her mother and her sister. The little girl was thrown from the car. She was rushed to the Children's Hospital of Georgia after emergency personnel reached the scene. The next morning, she succumbed to her injuries. Meanwhile, the other driver fled the scene in her car and crashed into another vehicle not far away. Police were able to apprehend her and charged her with…

Teen Dies in Car Accident Caused by Alleged Drunk Driver

Despite warning after warning from officers of the law, some people still choose to drive after drinking alcohol. Many of them believe nothing will happen because they have not consumed that much. Some simply do not care if they are a danger to themselves and others. No matter the thought process, there is a danger not just to themselves, but to others should their inebriated state cause a car accident resulting in injury or death. The students of one Georgia high school are joining a family in mourning the death of one of their own in a car accident police say was caused by a drunk driver. Two brothers and their cousin were on their way to school in a Ford F-150 pickup truck when a Jeep Cherokee veered over into their lane, causing a head-on collision. The driver of the Jeep and the three boys were sent to a medical facility…
