Ben Tucker, a popular jazz musician and bassist, was killed in a fatal car accident in Georgia late last night. According to the police report, Tucker had been driving a golf car when a 52-year-old driver in a sedan crashed into him at high speeds, causing him to be ejected from the golf cart and sustain severe injuries that ultimately led to him being pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
While the driver of the vehicle allegedly responsible for the fatal car crash is currently being held at the Chatham County jail in Savannah, Georgia, he has – so far – been charged with reckless driving, speeding and vehicular homicide. As the official police investigation in this fatal car accident is ongoing, additional charges in this tragic case may also be filed if police uncover further evidence of criminal negligence on behalf of the 52-year-old man.
Wrongful Death Lawsuit in Fatal Car Accident Case
Although the criminal case in this fatal car accident may take months or even years before it is resolved, the family of Ben Tucker does not have to wait for the outcome of this case in order to pursue a civil wrongful death lawsuit against the 52-year-old driver alleged to be responsible for their loved one’s death. While no amount of money can ever make up for the loss of a loved one, pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit against parties that have caused the untimely death of a loved one can provide families with essential funds to pay for funeral and burial costs and to help them get through such trying times.
