Barrow County is home to approximately 50,000 residents and 10,000 tourists that visit it annually to experience the native historical landmarks.
To facilitate the commute of both residents and tourists, the place is accessible through several highways that traverse the county to help ease transportation. However, the numerous highways, as well as intersections and cross streets that inhibit the county, can quickly become dangerous as the traffic increases.

The increased chances of accidents mean that there is a higher number of people looking to get duly compensated for the wrong done to them due to the negligence of another party. Accidents cause much more than just physical damage, and it is only right that you get paid for all your losses.

As a county area, Barrow County has several industries that utilize large vehicles to move goods throughout the state. Large vehicles are known to cause significant damage in accidents with smaller passenger cars or SUVs.
Any incorrect driving maneuver such as a sudden lane change can lead to a violent end or severe injuries being sustained by car owners. The disparity between size and space a truck occupies on the road, as opposed to a normal vehicle, can lead to accidents that damage numerous vehicles and injure several people. Truck fleets are usually operated by large companies that have insurance coverage. The insurance providers seek to minimize their payments by offering quick cash to silence victims.

The shock of wrongfully losing a family member can emotionally cripple the grieving family members. The costs associated with extensive hospital stay while recovering from injuries as well as the funeral expenses of the victim can leave any family economically destitute.
The state of Georgia provides two years for filing a wrongful death lawsuit, but the sooner you take action, the better. The full measure of damages you can demand reparations for, include:
- The full value of the life of the deceased
- Projected life income
- Intangible damages
However, the settlement figure that is offered by the party responsible for wrongful death is a fraction of the total damages that can be recovered. It is important that victims, in their hour of mourning, find the emotional strength to contact lawyers that can help them recover the full measure of damages they should justly receive.
