South Fulton, GA (November 7, 2022) - In 2021, there were 22 fatal crashes in the City of South Fulton. But so far, in 2022, auto accidents have claimed the lives of 41 people.
Two of the fatal accidents that occurred in this area in October happened at the intersection of Old National Highway and Burdett Road.
More fatal accidents have occurred over the past few months, according to the City of South Fulton Fire Chief, which is a trend that they do not like to see.
The Fire Chief stated that in the previous week, there have been three separate accidents resulting in five fatalities. The majority of these accidents all occurred due to drivers not adhering to the speed limit.
Another problematic intersection is the one at Jonesboro and Bethsaida Roads, which has seen its fair share of fatal car accidents over the years.
One resident stated, “It’s kind of a little bit scary. I really wish there would be a light. This intersection is actually crazy. Cars come flying by, and half the time, they’re not even on the street because of the curve.”
Another dangerous location is Old National Highway, which has already seen eight fatal accidents so far this year.
The Fire Chief stated that they already see a lot of single-car crashes and weather-related accidents.
Drivers are going too fast for the conditions.
The City of South Fulton will launch a new billboard campaign pleading with drivers to slow down.
It's all in an attempt to keep drivers safe and alive.
The city has also been identifying areas throughout the city that have experienced multiple collisions, and it is installing traffic calming measures in those areas.
The news that a loved one has passed away as a result of severe injuries sustained in a car accident is something that no one ever wants to hear. The emotional and financial devastation that takes place in the aftermath of a fatal car accident can be overwhelming.
When injuries are sustained as a result of a car accident caused by the negligence of another driver, a person has the legal right to sue that other driver. If the accident victim has unpaid medical bills, lost wages from being unable to work, property damage, emotional distress, and physical pain and suffering as a result of the accident, they may be eligible for compensation.
The victim's surviving family members may file a Wrongful Death Claim on behalf of their lost loved one who was killed in the accident if the victim passes away as a result of the injuries they sustained. The family of the deceased seeks justice and restitution for their loved one's passing in the same way that they would have been able to had they lived.
A family will also be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit and get money for the financial and emotional losses they've had to deal with because of their loved one's passing.
