Atlanta, GA (October 08, 2018) – At about 4:00 this afternoon a car making an illegal lane change on Buford Highway was signaled to pull over by police. The driver of the vehicle refused to stop, and instead moved across Peachtree Street and crashed into a fence. The car then caught fire while the suspect escaped on foot.
Shortly after first responders showed and doused the fire the suspect was spotted by a deputy. The Atlanta police gave chase and were successful in apprehending the man who has gone from facing a simple traffic ticket to a number of serious charges.
The name of the driver has not yet been released.
Georgia Property Damage
In the best of scenarios, all that needs to be dealt with after a car accident is the damage to the car itself. In many cases, however, property damage is involved. What qualifies as property damage? In broad terms, it is any type of injury, damage, or harm that is cause to anything other than a human being. This includes cars, mailboxes, fences, shrubbery and landscaping, windows, personal artifacts… the list goes on. The value of your personal property is judged primarily on either the cost of replacement or the cost of repair, any hardship endured from loss of use (if you had to stay in a hotel while your home was being remodeled because your neighbor’s grill caught fire), and sentimental value. These types of claims are generally handled through your insurance provider but in the event that you find yourself in a dispute over a property damage claim, it may be time to hire a lawyer. Your case is about to go from filing a simple claim and signing on the dotted line to taking on a giant corporation.
