Houston County, GA Bus Wreck Claims The Life Of 6-Year Old Girl

Posted by Ben Sessions | Feb 11, 2018 | 0 Comments

In Georgia, wrongful death occurs when loss of life is due to negligence, recklessness, or intentional/ criminal actions of another person, company, or business.

A tragic example of a wrongful death occurred in nearby Houston County. On January 30, 2018, a Houston County school bus carrying children home from school overturned with 30 students on board. While it remains unclear how this accident happened, this misfortunate injured the driver, 5 students, and prematurely ended the life of 6-year-old Arlana Haynes.

An unexpected death can cause financial and emotional distress. While nothing will ever amount to the life of a loved one, Georgia does have laws for types of damages following the wrongful death of a child. O.C.G.A. ยง 19-7-1 provides the authority for parents to recover for the loss of their child. Specifically, it gives parents the power to pursue a wrongful death claim for their unmarried child with no dependents. Arlana's parents cannot bring their child back to life, however they can bring honor to her misfortune in a dignified and respectful way. If someone that you love was killed as a result of careless or negligent acts, The Sessions Law Firm can help.
