Georgia State Patrol sent the Specialized Collision Reconstruction Team to investigate a recent crash that occurred on Highway 300. In many car accidents, the collision must be reconstructed before questions about fault and negligence can be answered. This incident involved a motorcycle and a truck that was pulling a camper.
A preliminary crash report by GSP indicates that the driver of a truck and camper was eastbound on Highway 32. When that driver reached the intersection with Highway 300, he allegedly turned left without yielding to a northbound motorcycle. The truck pulled directly into the path of the biker.
Troopers reported that the motorcyclist suffered serious injuries. He or she was rushed to the trauma department of a medical facility in Macon. Reportedly, the driver of the truck suffered no injuries. One of the northbound lanes of Highway 300 remained closed for traffic for about four hours.
Victims of car accidents in Georgia might have grounds to pursue claims for financial relief through the civil justice system of the state. The viability of such a claim will depend on the evidence of negligence on the part of another driver. An experienced personal injury attorney can provide valuable support and guidance throughout the ensuing legal proceedings.
A Georgia lawyer can launch an independent investigation to establish negligence and determine whom to name as defendants. Legal counsel can assist the plaintiff in documenting the claims for adjudication by the court. Recovery typically includes medical expenses, lost wages and other financial losses, along with emotional damages such as pain and suffering, loss of life enjoyment and more.
