Our Legal Take
As the details of this incident continue to develop, George Batten’s family may elect to file civil claims for his wrongful death seeking subtantial compensation. Based upon its experience and success handling cycling and pedestrian claims in Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that Mr. Batten’s family should retain an experienced personal injury firm to protect his interests and ensure an unbiased investigation. Photographs of the roadways involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before any evidence is damaged or destroyed.
