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's family to obtain all the necessary information that will be helpful in a wrongful death 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 Alpharetta Patch, a 53-year-old man was killed on I-75 while he was changing his tire. The man was struck by a trailer tire that came loose as a truck pulling a boat was passing. Police believe the truck struck a pothole, causing the trailer to come loose and the tire to roll away. The tire struck the man as he was changing his tire and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

An experienced Clayton County wrongful death attorney could investigate the accident and determine if anyone was at fault. It was unclear from the police report whether the trailer carrying the boat was properly secured to the truck. An investigation would also reveal if the boat exceeded the manufacturer's recommended maximum weight for the trailer. Accident reports could also be researched to determine if the pothole had been responsible for other accidents and if it had been reported to the proper authority for repairs.

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.
