At least twenty-eight people have been confirmed dead due to flooding following days of torrential rains in north-eastern Ghana.

More than 600 people have been displaced by the floods which have reportedly destroyed more than 1000 houses.

According to a statement from the country’s National Disaster Management Organization, the number of affected victims is expected to rise as the rains continue.

The country’s meteorological department has predicted the rains, which have been pouring for the last eight days, to continue into the coming weeks.

The agency has already started supplying relief food and aid to the displaced people who have since sought shelter in churches and schools.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”

Mr. Khodaverdian, a contributor to this site, is available for free consultations 24/7 by calling 800-984-4123.
