According to police, a 30-year-old pastor was riding his bicycle near Red
Top Mountain in Georgia on the afternoon of November 21st, when he was
struck from behind by a charter bus. Despite the fact that he was wearing
a helmet at the time of the accident, he sustained critical injuries which
he later succumbed to at the hospital. He left behind a wife and three
children, ages 8, 6 and 2. Following his death, the 77-year-old charter
bus driver responsible for the accident was charged with second-degree
vehicular homicide and following too closely. Although there was no reported
malicious intent, and statements seemed to indicate the bus driver did
not see him, it was still an extremely tragic accident that resulted in
a wrongful death.
Losing a loved one, especially in an accident that could have been prevented,
can be a very traumatic experience. While there is nothing that can be
done to bring that loved one back, there are actions which can be taken
to not only ensure the responsible party is held liable for their actions,
but that the grieving family receives compensation for their pain and
suffering, for the loss of income the loved one provided, for emotional
trauma caused by the untimely death, for burial costs, and more.
