When someone loses their life in an accident caused by the negligence of another person it’s considered a ‘wrongful death.’ One of the most tragic aspects of these accidents is the fact that the deadly accident was avoidable, that it can be traced directly to a person or persons who did something wrong. While this may give a name to a wrongdoer, it does little to ease a surviving family’s heartbreak.
As wrongful death lawyers in Chattanooga, we know that families who lose someone they love to another’s carelessness deserve more than just a name, they deserve justice. After a recent fatal accident in Dalton, the person responsible may be facing charges, but will that give the family the closure they need?
The accident happened early last Sunday morning. A young man was speeding toward the intersection of Hollywood Drive and Fleming Street when he lost control of his car. The car smashed into a utility pole and rolled. The reckless driver survived with minor injuries, but sadly the same can’t be said for one of his passengers. Another young man was ejected from the vehicle and lost his life. Now the driver is facing charges of first degree vehicular homicide, DUI, reckless driving, as well as driving too fast for conditions, failure to maintain lane, serious injury by vehicle, and other very serious charges.
