A report by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that 25,580 people died and many more were injured in 2012 auto accidents from January through September. Being prepared before an accident can enable a victim to obtain all the necessary information that will be helpful to their case.

Consulting a Clayton County attorney after an auto accident enhances a victim's ability to receive a reasonable settlement. If you have been injured in an automobile accident you should discuss your case with an accident attorney at the Law Offices of Shane Smith.

Georgia State Patrol is investigating a mid-morning head-on fatal accident that killed a 58-year-old retired teacher.

A pickup truck attempted to turn left in front of an oncoming truck. According to the police report there were no skid marks, indicating that neither driver attempted to stop. Both vehicles struck head-on and the driver of the truck turning left needed to be airlifted to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Police investigators took blood samples from both drivers but did not suspect that alcohol was a factor in the accident. It is possible that one or both of the drivers was distracted since neither made any attempt to stop.

If a death is caused by the negligence of another then the decedent's family may be entitled to legal relief through a wrongful death lawsuit. You should hire an experienced Clayton County wrongful death attorney if you will file a lawsuit on behalf of a family member who died due to another's negligence.
