Barnes Law Group is representing the family of Joelle Dalgleish in a wrongful death lawsuit against the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (“DNR”). Joelle was a bright and promising young woman who was killed by a dead tree after it fell on her at Red Top Mountain State Park on May 19, 2017. An investigation conducted by DNR after Joelle’s death revealed that the fallen tree was dead and lacked a viable root system to hold the tree in the ground. Joelle’s death could have been prevented if the DNR followed their own practices and procedures to identify and remove dead and dying trees from the public use areas of the park. The family’s focus is to ensure that what happened to Joelle doesn’t happen to anyone else.
