Georgia fatal car crash kills mother and unborn baby

| Dec 26, 2014 | Wrongful Death


It is a sad fact that anytime a person goes out on the road in Fulton County, there is the possibility that there will be a fatal car crash. There is no way to prepare for it, and it happens to those who are obeying all the traffic laws and driving cautiously, as well as those behaving recklessly. Car accidents are impossible to predict, and it is the worst nightmare for family members to receive that phone call or knock at the door informing them of the loss of a loved one in a crash. After they happen, there is a great deal for the family left behind to consider and deal with.

A pregnant woman and the child she was carrying were killed in a three-car crash. The 25-year-old woman was driving an Acura 3.2 TL when a Honda CR-V pulled into her path. In an effort to avoid the Honda, the woman drove into the opposite lane of the road. Her car was hit by a Cadillac. She was taken to the hospital where she was declared dead. The driver of the Cadillac was also taken to the hospital. The investigation is ongoing and charges are possible.

When there is a fatal car crash, there are many issues that must be considered. There will be numerous costs that arise such as funeral expenses. A significant amount of pain and suffering will be experienced by those who were left behind. In any wrongful death incident, it is an unexpected occurrence that must be dealt with on a personal and emotional basis. After the reality sinks in, the person who died might have been a significant contributor to the household financially and personally. Insurers might express sympathy after the accident, but their main focus is on keeping costs in line. This is why it is unwise for family members to accept an early settlement offer soon after the accident.

Any wrongful death is a terrible occurrence, but this case is especially painful as a pregnant woman and the baby she was carrying were both killed in this accident. It will take a lot for her family to recover from the dual loss of the mother and the unborn child. Given everything that they have to confront, it is important that they have legal assistance in potential litigation so they can focus on getting past the pain and suffering of this incident.
