Car Accident Claims Life of Cherokee County Teen

A second teenage girl from Cherokee County has died in a car accident in less than a week.

According to authorities, Victoria Heil, a cheerleader at Woodstock High, died when her SUV hit a guardrail and overturned Sunday morning on I-575. The single-vehicle accident was reported shortly after midnight.

Police say that Heil, who was reportedly not wearing a seat belt, was headed north on I-575 near Towne Lake Parkway when her 2002 Jeep Cherokee ran off the road, struck a guardrail and came to rest on its right side.

Early last Friday morning, 19-year-old Brittany Weiss of Canton was killed when her vehicle was struck by a driver who was reportedly fleeing police (goatlanta-ga.blogspot.com/2008/12/former-cherokee-high-student-killed-in.html).

When car accidents occur an auto accident personal injury claim is often the only way to receive compensation for damages to the automobile, medical damages, and loss of wages. In order to file a claim there are things that should be done as soon as possible, even at the scene of the accident if it is possible. Choosing solicitor when making Car Accident Claims is not an easy process as involves a great deal of searching for the perfect compensation attorney that helps in winning the case and getting the due compensation from the other party that caused the accident due to sheer negligence. While looking for an accident claim solicitor, it is important to look for a solicitor that specializes in car accident injury claims.

Accidents tend to occur despite the best safety measures. You may have taken all the necessary precautions. You may still end up meeting with accidents. Many of the injuries also result due to the negligence of the other person. Accidents can occur while driving, walking, working at office premises or simply while travelling. The most common cause of accidents is negligence and unsafe measures.Car accidents are known to be the most fatal type of accidents. They often prove dangerous. Many of the people end up losing their life. Some of them are physically disabled for life. If someone else had been responsible for the accident, you can always make a claim. You need not suffer for the fault of someone. However, to make a successful claim, you must be able to prove the injury has resulted due to the fault of someone. This can be done by providing reports stating the medical reports and police records stating the cause of accident. This can act as a proof of the injuries.For more information visit us at:-accident compensation claims.

That just really sad. There are a lot of ways in car accident claims. Consider these case(http://www.swiftsolicitors.co.uk/CaseStudies/RoadTrafficAccidentsCase1SwiftSolicitors.aspx):

"Instructions were received to act on behalf of the Claimant in relation to a road traffic accident that took place on 6th June 2010. On the aforementioned date, the Claimant was the passenger in a motor vehicle, when another vehicle, being driven by the Defendant’s insured, drove into the passenger side of the Claimant’s vehicle. As a result of the collision, the Claimant sustained whiplash injuries and their vehicle sustained significant damage. Upon receipt of the initial instructions, work was done to establish the negligence and liability of the Defendant. The case was entered onto the MOJ Portal in July 2010. The Defendant duly admitted liability and made the Stage 1 payment. Work was done to establish the nature and severity of the Claimant’s injuries. Their medical records were obtained and a medical expert was instructed to prepare a report on their injuries. The Stage 2 settlement pack was duly lodged in April 2011, including special damages claims for medical treatment, x-rays, prescription charges and loss of earnings. The Defendant responded with an offer to settle the claim in the inclusive sum of £3,400.00 in June 2011. A further medical report was obtained and disclosed to the Defendant on 17th October 2011. As no agreement on quantum could be reached between the parties, the Claimant issued proceedings on 5th January 2012. On 6th June 2012, the Defendant put forward a Part 36 offer to settle the claim in the inclusive sum of £7,000.00. The Claimant accepted the Part 36 offer on 2nd July 2012. The matter was conducted throughout by Matthew Bell. It was funded by way of a CFA and ATE insurance premium, with a success fee set in line with CPR 45.11."
