Atlanta-area police cited excessive speed and alcohol as factors in a one-car crash that killed an 18-year-old from Milton. The driver of the car was apparently speeding in his pickup when he lost control and flipped twice with two passengers. The accident happened on May 12, at 2:30 a.m. A 16-year-old was also injured in the wreck and hospitalized.
The Georgia Rules of the Road govern what constitutes legally safe and lawful driving in Georgia. While this example is harsh, the estate of the passengers in the car have a potential wrongful death claim. The issue being: did the driver in whose car the passenger was in act negligently in causing the accident? If so, the driver would be liable for the injury (and death, if there was a fatality in the wreck) of the passenger and for all damages associated with the passenger’s life, including the pain and suffering at the time of death.
