Lawsuit filed over fiery crash that killed 4 in Henry County

Truckers get a decent amount of respect in Georgia. People in the Peach State know that prices would be higher and variety would be far lower in supermarkets and shopping malls if trucks did not bring goods and food to them. But drivers are also at risk from the force of possible collisions.

When trucking accidents happen, victims or their families are often at a loss. Recovery can be difficult and expensive, leading people to seek help in civil courts. One such case surrounds a fiery accident in Henry County that killed four people.

A tractor-trailer struck the rear of the victims' pickup truck at relatively high speed. A lawsuit being filed on behalf of the victims names the semi's driver as well as the driver's employer as defendants. Trucking companies may be legally liable in the case that their procedures or orders created the environment that made a crash possible.

The failure of the truck to slow down before the collision and eyewitness accounts indicate that the driver was either asleep or deeply distracted. One account states that the driver was not seen to be observing the road just before the crash. Sadly, at least one of the four people in the pickup truck survived the collision but died in the fire afterward.

Victims of truck accidents and the survivors of people killed by truck crashes may have a case for financial damages against the drivers or their employers. An attorney can help clarify financial damages as an option and figure out the best way to file a lawsuit.
