Georgia Woman Not Responsible for Fatal Car Crash

The vehicle had gone out of control, struck a guardrail, and was then struck by another car. The victims had all been taken to the hospital, and apparently, who was driving at the time of the car accident had become confused.

This story highlights the difficulty of determining the facts in a car accident, why it can take so much time and can be so expensive. Car accidents can be tremendously violent events, vehicles can be ripped apart and, as with this crash, there can be multiple crashes during an accident.

Accident reconstruction can be complex and requires painstaking attention to detail to assemble. Witnesses are notoriously unreliable, because they are not trained observers of motor vehicle accidents and they are not expecting to witness an accident. This means that their awareness is often very slow to “catch up” to events as they unfold in seconds.

It appears in this car accident a review of surveillance video from a gas station helps correct the mistake. If you have been involved in a car accident, this is why it is important, if you are able, to take pictures and identify witnesses and elements of the accident scene.

Because of the complexities of car accidents, it is a good idea to contact an attorney to represent your interests as soon as possible.

Wonderful law firm that cares

I was injured in a terrible fall which left my foot, arm back and knee badly bruised. The Dozier Law Firm was awesome. Attorney Dustin Hamilton reviewed and accepted my case and within a few months he was able to settle my case for more than I ever imagine. The Dozier Law Firm is A+ in my book.
