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 26-year-old Georgia woman was driving her truck and talking on her cell phone when she received a text message. This likely caused a fatal auto accident. She was charged with second-degree homicide by vehicle, following too closely, driving with an expired license and distracted driving. The accident killed a 36-year-old youth basketball coach.

According to the police report, the truck's driver received a text message on her cell phone moments before the crash, but she deleted it before allowing police to examine her phone. An investigation revealed that she had been talking on her cell phone at the time of the fiery accident that involved multiple vehicles.

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.
