Auto accidents a threat to road workers

Georgia drivers appreciate the men and women who work hard to keep the roads in good condition. When a road is in need of repair, these men and women must try to fix the problem as cars and trucks whiz by. Though surely, there are safety features in place to try to prevent injury or death to such workers, these men and women can quickly become the victims of auto accidents

Recently, a worker was part of a crew pouring asphalt on a Georgia roadway. There were police vehicles with lights and other caution warnings surrounding the job site. The driver of a pickup truck switched lanes to try to pass one of the police cars. Some of the lanes were closed to traffic at the time. 

In doing so, the driver struck one of the workers. The worker was killed as a result. The driver remained at the scene and was reportedly cooperative, but nothing could be done to save the victim. An investigation into the exact details of the death is now underway, and the victim was identified as a 28-year-old man. 

When auto accidents claim lives, surviving members of a victim's family may want to seek legal justice against the driver who killed a loved one. When grief and shock are already overwhelming, medical bills, funeral expenses and other financial burdens can seem impossible to face. In many cases, a compassionate attorney can step in and help collect any damages or compensation that may be awarded on behalf of the deceased.
