Elderly woman suffers wrongful death days after car crash

When there is a car accident in Marietta and throughout Georgia, people should be aware that even if they do not believe they were seriously injured or injured at all when the accident happened, there is still a chance that there was damage done. In some instances, it takes time to manifest itself into symptoms and will lead to severe problems and even wrongful death. For families who have lost a loved one after an accident and the death occurred days later when they thought the person was fine, it becomes even more urgent to act, to gather evidence and consider a legal filing.

A car accident involving an elderly woman led to her death days later. The accident happened when the woman, 77, was driving her 2007 Hyundai Sonata and a 2016 Nissan Altima, driven by a 49-year-old man, turned into her path. At the time, there was a yellow turn arrow flashing and the driver of the Altima was supposed to yield. He did not and the accident happened. The driver of the Altima was not hurt. The woman was taken to the hospital to be evaluated. After she was released, she returned days later with internal injuries that are believed to have come about in the crash. She later died. The investigation into the crash is ongoing.

Losing a loved one is difficult enough, but when it happens in a car accident because a driver failed to yield and adhere to the rules of the road, it is worse. Compounding that is when the person who died appeared to have escaped serious injury, but was later found to have been severely hurt with the injuries leading to a fatality. The family left behind must think about the incident, the costs that are associated with it, the emotional loss and more. Understanding the steps to filing a case is key when considering a lawsuit.

An elderly woman died days after she had been in a car accident, was checked at the hospital and released. Since she died as an apparent result of the injuries she suffered in the crash, there could be the basis for a lawsuit. In a case like this it is essential that her family discuss the matter with experienced Marietta, Georgia, wrongful death lawyers as soon as possible.
