Clayton County Trucking Accident Leaves Two Children Dead and Many Unanswered Questions

October 03, 2015

Sometimes a trucking accident can seem clear cut, making it easier to determine what party may be at fault for causing the accident. In other cases, an accident can be much more difficult to investigate, raising questions that could take a very long time to answer, especially in situations where children have been injured or tragically killed. Depending on a child's age, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to determine what went wrong. Even if a child is able to recover from injuries suffered in an accident, it can still be challenging to fully understand what that child went through and what person or party was truly at fault for causing the accident.

A recent Clayton County trucking accident demonstrated just how vulnerable children are, and how it can be extremely tragic to put the pieces back together after a horrific accident. As a semi-truck was traveling down Georgia Highway 138, a woman driving a passenger vehicle attempted to turn from a side street onto the highway. The vehicle was in the direct path of the semi-truck as it was turning, and the driver of the semi-truck was unable to avoid striking the passenger vehicle. The driver of the passenger vehicle survived the accident, but two young children were not as fortunate, as both of them sadly suffered fatal injuries.

How a Georgia Trucking Accident Attorney Can Help You

Most people would agree that regardless of how an accident occurred, any young children involved are essentially innocent bystanders. They do not have control over how an accident occurs, or whether or not the accident is preventable. The vulnerability of children is something that should never be taken lightly, especially when it comes to automobile accidents. For those who have been involved in a trucking accident that has resulted in the serious injury or death of any children (or anyone else involved), speaking with an attorney is the first step to answering those initial questions that could keep you up at night.

A skilled attorney will thoroughly investigate the facts surrounding a trucking accident, helping injured victims and their loved ones put the pieces back together. When dealing with an accident that resulted in the loss of one's life, time is of the essence, and an attorney will be better able to assist victims and their loved ones if injuries are discussed as quickly as possible following an accident. There could also be limited time available to pursue potential legal action.
