Car Crash Involving Stolen Vehicle Leads to Fatality in Atlanta, Georgia

On December 7, 2020, an SUV was stolen from the Atlanta Marriott Marquis on Peachtree Center Avenue at roughly 9:45 a.m. The stolen vehicle was reported to police, but the driver had already fled when they arrived at the scene. Atlanta police attempted to set up a blockade at a nearby apartment complex in hopes of catching the driver — Donte Harris, a 23-year-old man. Still, Harris evaded capture by ramming the SUV into a patrol vehicle before fleeing. According to police reports, Harris was heading north before turning the wrong way on Juniper Street. Shortly after, he lost control of the vehicle and struck two utility poles, flipping the SUV in a fiery crash. Harris was taken to the hospital after escaping the vehicle, as he was on fire from head to toe. An unidentified passenger did not survive.

Campaign Staffer for Loeffler Killed in Car Accident

Tragedy struck the state of Georgia on Friday, December 4, 2020, when Harrison Deal, a volunteer campaign staffer for Senator Kelly Loeffler, was killed in a car accident on eastbound I-16 near Pooler Parkway. Senator Loeffler canceled her a scheduled campaign stop in Savannah, Georgia in response. Both Vice President Mike Pence and Senator David Perdue were expected to attend the campaign, but Loeffler was distraught by the devastating news, posting on her feelings on Twitter shortly after hearing the news: “It is with an extremely heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Harrison Deal. My heart aches for his family, and Jeff and I will continue to surround them in love and prayer in the days ahead,” Loeffler said. “Harrison was a beloved member of our campaign team. More importantly, Harrison was a smart, bright, loving, loyal, and outstanding young man.” A University of Georgia student, a senate campaign volunteer, and a friend…

Atlanta Police Still Not Responding to Auto Accidents Involving Uninjured Parties; How Should You Respond?

Due to the coronavirus, Atlanta, Georgia police have not been responding to car accidents without injuries since August 2020. According to the department, this decision was made “to protect the health and safety of our staff and customers.” While it sounds like a good idea, in theory, too many accidents result in injuries that don’t surface until after each party has departed the scene. Internal bruising, bleeding, and concussions are just a few of the many symptoms and injuries people involved in accidents can experience well after the initial collision. Why You Should Still Seek Medical Treatment Following an Auto Accident in Atlanta Dozier Law Firm explains the importance of seeking treatment immediately following an auto accident, regardless of whether police investigate the incident: "Do not assume that you are not injured if you are feeling little or no pain the day of the accident," advises the team of expert…

New Details Emerge: Warner Robins, GA Man Killed by FedEx Driver

On November 15, 2020, a Warner Robins man was killed in Macon, Georgia when a FedEx tractor-trailer rear-ended his car after a tire came off the vehicle, rending it immobile. 58-year-old Todd Allen Glessner was pronounced dead at the scene. Because the at-fault driver was likely on-the-clock working for a major shipping and distributing company, a lot of insurance-related questions are now in play. Does the driver assume full-responsibility, or does the FedEx company share the blame? Was the driver working normal shift hours, or was he putting in overtime and driving in a drowsy state of mind? Whatever the case may be, a strong legal team will certainly play a role in any upcoming proceedings. Dozier Law Firm, comprised of experts in getting affected parties proper compensation, warns Glessner’s family of why they should be wary of moving forward: “Especially when a large company is involved, be on the…

Macon Crash Results in Sunday Morning Death of Warner Robins Man

On November 15, 2020, a 58-year-old Warner Robins man was involved in a car crash in Macon, Georgia that took his life. A tire came off of an RV that entered the path of the victim’s vehicle, involving him in the incident. This inevitably rendered his car unusable in the middle of the highway and led to the crash that killed him. Accidents like this are sad and unfortunate, and they force both the victims and the at-fault parties to make difficult decisions regarding their legal representation. Good attorneys in the Macon, Georgia area can help people reach appropriate settlements related to medical bills, time off work, travel expenses, and expenses related to the mental and physical health of a personal injury claim.

Georgia Fatal Shooting and Track Accident Leads to Questions

On Sunday, October 25, 2020, Dekalb County, Georgia in metro Atlanta saw a disturbing series of events unfold on I-20 eastbound that resulted in lane closures for over five hours. When police arrived on the scene, they found a man stationed inside his vehicle suffering from gunshot wounds and a deceased woman — the result of being struck by a tractor-trailer.

Shortly after, the woman stopped her vehicle and exited, only to be struck by a tractor-trailer.

Motorcycle Accident Injures Georgia Bulldogs’ Star Safety

Star Bulldogs safety Richard LeCounte was injured in a motorcycle accident shortly after the University of Georgia’s football team returned to Athens after their November 1, 2020 victory against Kentucky. LeCounte’s injuries are not life-threatening, but given he was still being treated on Sunday morning, it is unlikely he will be available for the team’s annual “Cocktail Party” clash against the Florida Gators on Saturday, 11/7. LeCounte is one of the best defensive players on The Georgia Bulldog’s roster. His mother claims he was struck by two cars while riding his motorcycle at night, and that wearing a helmet “saved his life.” Athletes injured in car, truck, and motorcycle accidents have special concerns as it relates to monetary loss, given how their bodies are their livelihood and an athlete’s career is relatively short-lived. If you’re a high school, college, or professional athlete who falls victim to a motor vehicle accident…

Fatal Albany, Georgia Accident Results in Multiple Deaths

In August, a fatal three-car wreck occurred at Madison Street and Gaines Avenue in Albany, Georgia, leaving two people dead and five others injured. The accident occurred when one of the deceased attempted to pass another vehicle and side-swiped it before crashing head-on with a different driver. According to WALB News Albany, every person involved was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. When you are involved in a motor vehicle accident — especially one that is not your fault — you are almost always entitled to some form of compensation.

One of these factors pertains to how effective your treatment is, which means it is important for you to finish any treatment before seeking compensation. Dozier Law firm, a team of experts in helping clients affected by motor vehicle accidents obtain compensation, explains. “It is important to get a complete…

Two-Vehicle Accident near Savannah Results in Teacher’s Death; What Type of Offer Should His Family Receive?

On Wednesday, October 7, 2020, a motorcycle accident resulted in the death of a Richmond Hill Middle School teacher. The victim was driving along Belfast River Road near Savannah, Georgia when he collided with a vehicle operated by a motorist attempting to make a left turn. The man was later pronounced dead at St. Joseph's Hospital in Savannah. Because the driver who caused the accident failed to yield, serious consequences are involved — especially since the person struck was later pronounced dead. It seems likely the police will quickly assign fault to the surviving driver. The police are not the only group of people who will be interested in wrapping up the case quickly and efficiently. Receiving an Offer From an Insurance Company In situations like this, insurance companies will often reach out to the family of the deceased and offer to negotiate with the goal of paying out as…

Fatal Car Crash in Savannah Leads to Questions; Could Witnesses Help?

On October 12, 2020, a 65-year-old man was killed when a woman who tried to turn left on MLK Jr. Boulevard in Savannah, Georgia entered his path. The man could not avoid her, and the two vehicles collided, resulting in a car crash that brought on his death. The man received care from EMTs on-site, and he was transported to the hospital, where he later passed. Seeing how this accident occurred at a major intersection, there would have been witnesses. These witnesses would be essential in answering the police’s questions and determining the at-fault party, which makes their statements crucial. Dozier Law Firm, a team comprised of experts in dealing with these kinds of cases, explains: "Be aware of any witnesses to the accident that may have important information. Make sure you write down their contact information and any information they may have regarding the circumstances of the accident. If…
