Coweta County, GA (October 08 2018) – This is an update to a story that was previously posted on Friday the 5th. A woman from South Fulton County was killed in Coweta County in a one-car crash at approximately 10:25 AM after her car went off the road. The 71-year-old victim has since been identified as Tanya Tabar Strickley of Union City.
Georgia State Police indicated that Strickley had been driving eastbound and had her car go off the road as she went around a curve. The driver appears to have then overcorrected, causing her car to go off the north side of Tommy Lee Cook Road and down an embankment where the left side of the vehicle hit a tree.
Strickley had a 14-year-old passenger with her who was taken immediately to Piedmont Newnan Hospital to be treated for injuries. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. An investigation into the cause of this crash is still ongoing but police do not believe that drugs or alcohol were involved at this time.
Georgia Fatal Accident
When someone dies as the result of a vehicle collision it invokes a lot of emotions. The situation is, all at once, confusing and horrifying. One possible outcome of a car accident that has resulted in a loss of life is a claim for wrongful death. Simply put, a wrongful death claim identifies a person or persons so negligent or irresponsible in thought or action that it lead to a death that otherwise would not have happened. While nothing in the world can ever, ever replace or bring back the person you have lost there are ways to minimize the damage it could potentially cause to other areas of your life. The most notable and fixable issue is matters of finance.
A wrongful death suit would allow for you to seek recompense for heavy financial obligations that you incurred as a result of the other person’s negligence. Lost income from missing work, lost income from the deceased, medical bills, funeral arrangements, and pain and suffering are all things that a qualified lawyer can assess when determining the amount requested in your lawsuit. The opposing side is sure to have an attorney as well; one meant to protect them from the financial assets you are seeking to claim.
It is categorically unwise to try and head into this type of proceeding on your own.
