Single-vehicle accidents can be difficult to defend in civil court. With a multi-vehicle accident, it’s usually clear who was at fault. But when there is just one car, how much should the insurance company pay out? It depends on the policy.
Take this tragic case from Pickens County. A 16-year-old athlete was driving with a passenger on Salem Church Road. He got into an accident. His passenger had to be airlifted to Marietta. He died at the scene.
The news article from the AJC doesn’t go into deep detail, likely due to the investigation and the deceased’s minority status. We hope that the family’s insurance policy does cover enough for final expenses. But this isn’t always the case. Sometimes you have to go to court and fight with the insurance company for more money.
