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.
If you are dealing with the loss of a loved one or have lost your own livelihood, and you or they were on a motorcycle at the time, you may be entitled to damages. The costs associated with recovery can be as debilitating as the accident. Funeral expenses and loss of income are two conflicting circumstances that can happen at once with a fatal motorcycle accident. Contacting a Georgia motorcycle accident attorney may be the difference between managing the outcome of a tragedy and seeing it continue to create residual problems. Now is the time to focus on the positive and allow for someone else to assist with the necessary busy work.
