Father Arrested after Fetus Killed in Accident

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.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, a man was arrested and charged with feticide after an investigation into an auto accident that killed his wife's unborn baby. The accident occurred months earlier when the man's car collided with a van. The man's wife was in the car and suffered injuries that killed her unborn child. The van's driver sustained serious injuries including several broken bones.

The man and his wife both told investigating officers that the woman was driving the car. They repeated the same story to their insurance company. However, the police investigation revealed that the man was driving at the time of the accident. The man's license had been suspended at the time of the accident and he later admitted that he was not the father of his wife's child.

Both the man and the woman were arrested for insurance claims fraud and willful obstruction of a law enforcement officer. Additionally, the man was charged with felony feticide.

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.
