Many accidents involve two or more parties. This sets up the conditions for a possible lawsuit. After all, you can’t seek compensation against someone who isn’t there. But what do you do when both sides have suffered tragedy? How does that affect civil cases? In situations like these, that’s why it’s important to have a lawyer on your side, a third party that can think objectively and argue persuasively in front of the judge.
One man lost his life, but the other party lost their infant child in a crash in Lithonia. Investigators say a that the motorcycle-car accident happened at the intersection on Kimberly Lynn Court and Rock Chapel Road. The car ran into the motorcycle just before midnight. The motorcyclist was an off-duty officer. Police are still investigating the crash.
The decision about whether to pursue a civil suit is difficult. In this case, both families involved lost loved ones. Would it be worth it to further stress everyone involved for the sake of compensation? That all depends on the circumstances. An impartial lawyer will never push you toward filing a lawsuit. They will advise you of your options and their estimation of what will happen if you follow those options.
