Fulton County Car Accident Claims the Lives of Two Women

Fatal car accidents in Philadelphia often leave many wondering who’s to blame for the death of their loved ones. While many may attribute the need to assign blame as an emotional response to a tragic event, the truth is that knowing who’s at fault is an important part of the families of accident victims being able to move on with their lives. Understanding the cause of such accidents might help give them peace-of-mind as they cope with their losses. Such knowledge is also vital if they plan on seeking compensation from those responsible for these accidents.

A recent crash in Fulton County claimed the lives of both of the drivers involved. While an investigation into the cause of the crash is currently underway, law enforcement officials do believe that one of the drivers, a young woman, lost control of her car and crashed into another vehicle driven by an elderly woman. First responders arrived to find the older woman trapped inside of her car. She was rushed to a local hospital, where she later succumbed to her injuries. The young woman died at the scene. Investigators believe that she was not wearing her seat belt at the time of the crash.

Many may view any legal action taken against a driver who allegedly caused a fatal car accident to be unnecessary, particularly if that driver was him or herself killed in the accident. Yet for the families of many accident victims, the choice to pursue compensation is a necessary one. The potential money from a settlement may be the only way they have to fill the financial void that their loved one’s death left them with. Those needing to pursue such action may wish to work with a personal injury attorney in doing so.
