A devastating death occurred in Georgia when a woman’s life was taken from her in a car related accident. However, what sets this case apart is the fact that the opposing party immediately sought to provide her with medical care. This heart wrenching detail makes it even more saddening that she was taken from this world. While the woman was traveling in the passenger seat, another car hit her vehicle as she was making a left turn. A passenger from the opposing Camaro immediately put the victim in the car and drove her to Candler Hospital. Although this party’s vehicle may have caused the unfortunate accident, they took immediate action and attempted to find her medical care. It is heartbreaking news to hear that she passed at the hospital, despite the valiant attempt.
The Sobering Reality
Regardless of their motive, the party in the Camaro truly wanted to make sure the woman’s life was spared. Immediate action and an attempt at medical assistance is rarely the case because of the confusion involved. Despite their attempts, it is likely that the Camaro driver will be held liable for the accident, assuming that they had not followed ordinary precautions of a normal driver in their circumstance. In other words, if they sped or ran through a light (or done something else considered to be negligent), they will be held liable. Does that mean that an individual should not help a victim in need? Regardless, if the hospital had been able to cure and sustain the victim’s life, then the charges facing the Camaro’s party would be significantly less.
Pursuing Legal Representation After a Fatal Accident
If you have suffered a serious injury, or if you have lost a family member in a fatal accident, it is important that you seek legal representation. Even if the other driver tried to help you or your loved one after the accident occurred, the fact remains that the accident and injuries would not have occurred but for negligence. As such, an attorney can help you to recover the compensation that you desperately need and deserve. Compensation that is recoverable in a car accident case such as this may include damages for funeral and burial expenses, emotional anguish, lost wages, pain and suffering, and medical expenses.
