Our Legal Take
As the details of this tragedy continue to develop, the family of Rocky Witt may elect to seek justice and file a civil claim for their loss. The Murray Law Firm has had extensive and successful experience representing victims of motor vehicle claims, and the legal team at the firm suggests that Rocky Witt’s family should retain a law firm without delay to protect their interests and ensure an unbiased investigation and the preservation of any and all evidence. Photographs of the roadways and vehicles involved and a review of surveillance footage from nearby businesses or properties, if any exists, will need to be performed immediately before this evidence is damaged or destroyed. Also, under Workers’ Compensation laws, our legal team suggests that the family of Rocky Witt will most likely be entitled to significant compensation as a result of this accident. In addition, any other victims may elect to file claim for their injuries.
