Teen Killed during Car Stunt that went Wrong

By Law Offices of Andrew W. Jones  Jun. 20, 2013 3:02p

A 16-year-old girl was killed recently after a car surfing stunt with friends. The girl, A.H., was standing on the hood of a friend's SUV while the driver drove down a roadway. Authorities with the Georgia State Patrol reported that the driver had been speeding while A.H. was standing on the hood of the vehicle. The driver lost control of the SUV and hit an embankment at a high rate of speed. The jolt caused A.H. to go flying off the hood. She suffered critical injuries and died as a result. Reports do not indicate whether or not alcohol or drugs may have been a factor. Officials are continuing to investigate the tragic accident but have turned the case over to the district attorney's office. There has been no word as yet regarding charges against the driver or any others involved. If you lost a loved one in an accident that could have been prevented then you may be able to file a wrongful death suit. Speak with a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer about your options.

About Car Accidents and Wrongful Death

If the negligence, recklessness, misconduct or other carelessness resulted in the death of a parent, spouse, child or other family member then you may be entitled to compensation for your loss. Car accidents are all too common sources of fatalities, not only in Marietta but throughout the United States. Drunk drivers, drugged drivers, distracted drivers (texting while driving or otherwise using a handheld device), street racing, aggressive maneuvers and other such examples have claimed far too many lives and severe injuries when collisions occur. When such an individual is proven liable for your loss in the eyes of the law then he or she may be held responsible for financial damages suffered by survivors because of the death of that loved one. You may be entitled to compensation for any medical expenses, funeral costs, pain, mental anguish, loss of companionship, loss of financial contribution by the deceased and other losses.
