Husband may file wrongful death claim after fatal Florida crash

Vehicles present dangers even under the best of circumstances. However, when a driver is unable to control a vehicle due to intoxication or other factors, there is a considerable likelihood that individuals could be seriously hurt. If a car accident results in an innocent individual losing his or her life, the family of the victim may wish to look into filing a wrongful death claim.

It was recently reported that a fatal incident took place in Florida. Reports indicated that a 24-year-old man was driving a pickup truck when he failed to remain on the road, and as a result, the truck crashed into a house. The driver was speeding at the time of the incident, and the collision sent the pickup through three rooms in the home. The driver failed a sobriety test that was administered after authorities arrived at the scene.

Truck accidents: Florida woman killed in hit and run

Though some drivers may panic after being involved in an accident, it is important that all parties involved remain at the scene. If a driver leaves, he or she could face serious repercussions, including criminal charges. Additionally, the family of any victims of such car or truck accidents may also pursue civil claims against any hit-and-run drivers.

A civil claim could potentially result after a recent accident in Florida. Reports stated that the driver of a tow truck struck a woman who was walking in or near a crosswalk. The driver of the truck reportedly knew he hit someone but did not know what to do. As a result, he fled the scene. The pedestrian suffered fatal injuries as a result of the incident. 

Florida crash may result in legal claim filings

Distracted driving is a contributing factor in many crashes that take place across the country. Individuals who are not paying attention for even a moment could find themselves facing a situation in which a crash could result. Even if a driver attempts to avoid a collision, that action may not be enough, and an accident could still take place. If the incident proves fatal, a legal claim could be warranted.

It was recently reported that an accident in Florida caused one fatality. Apparently, a 26-year-old woman was traveling north when she failed to realize that the vehicle in front of her had stopped in order to make a turn. She tried to go around the stopped car by traveling into the opposite lane, but her vehicle crashed into a southbound vehicle.

When drivers operate vehicles while they are fatigued, there is a chance they could fall asleep. If a driver does fall asleep behind the wheel, a serious crash could take place, which could involve other vehicles and innocent individuals. Unfortunately, such accidents could lead to fatal injuries, and the families of the victims may wish to file wrongful death claims.

Reports stated that a recent incident in Florida led to the death of one individual. A 16-year-old boy had reportedly been standing on the shoulder of a roadway after having been involved in an accident. Details on that incident were not given in the report. While the boy was standing, another driver hit him. The driver apparently remained at the scene, and when questioned by authorities, she stated that she fell asleep while driving. 

Florida child seriously injured by animal bites

Many pet owners know that there could be potential risks for animal attacks. Therefore, it is always a wise choice to ensure that any children are supervised when around dogs or other animals. Unfortunately animal bites are a common occurrence, and serious attacks could lead to individuals suffering serious injuries. These injuries could also potentially lead to legal claims.

The family of a young boy in Florida may consider legal action after the child was recently attacked. Reports indicated that the boy was at a family friend's house with his mother at the time of the incident. Authorities suspect that the mother was inside the house sleeping when the 22-month-old child was attacked by a dog on the premises. It was unclear what may have caused the attack.

Accident leaves Florida motorcyclist with serious injuries

Motorcycle accidents are common events. These incidents often and easily lead to serious injuries as motorcyclists have little protection against other vehicles and outside hazards. If individuals do suffer injuries due to being involved in such an accident, they may face considerable difficulties. As a result, they could potentially file a legal claim against the individual or individuals considered at fault.

One man in Florida may be exploring his options after a recent accident. Reports stated that the man was traveling north when a woman driving a van made a left turn from the southbound turn lane. The turn carried the van into the path of the man, and though he tried to stop before striking the van, he was unsuccessful and crashed into the side of the van. 

Fatal car accident takes place in Florida

After a car crash takes place, it may take investigators some time before they are able to definitively determine what caused the accident. When information about a car accident is not immediately available, the families of any victims of the incident may find themselves putting their lives on hold as they await answers. In many cases, the information resulting from an investigation plays a substantial role in legal claims filed as a result of crashes.

Claims potentially filed after a recent accident in Florida may hinge on such information. It was reported that the crash involved two vehicles, though specific details about the incident were not available at the time of the report. It was noted that police suspected that speed and failure to maintain the correct lane were possible contributing factors.

Family may pursue legal action after serious accident in Florida

There are various actions that a family may wish to take after losing a loved one in a car crash. If they believe that filing a legal claim against the driver considered at fault for the serious accident could be right for their situation, they may wish to find out more information on their options. Gaining such knowledge may help them better handle the difficult circumstances they are likely to face.

One family may be looking into such options after a recent crash in Florida. Reports stated that a 69-year-old man was driving a van north at an intersection when a car traveling west did not stop at a stop sign. As a result, the car crashed into the van. The impact caused the van to be pushed into the southbound lanes where it was hit by a pickup truck. 

Fatal Florida accident may warrant wrongful death claim

Drunk drivers cause serious accidents numerous times every year. Some of those incidents prove fatal, and families and friends can be horrifically affected by the sudden and devastating losses. In the aftermath of such an event, a family whose loved one was killed may wish to consider filing a wrongful death claim. 

A recent accident in Florida may lead to such legal action. Reports stated that a man driving a car failed to stop at a red light. As a result, his vehicle crashed into another car. The second car was carrying a 34-year-old woman and a 36-year-old man. Authorities believed that the man driving the first vehicle was under the influence at the time of the crash. 

Florida motorcycle accidents: 1 killed, other seriously injured

When drivers attempt to make left turns, they often have to cross other lanes of traffic. As a result, these simple maneuvers could potentially cause serious accidents if the turning vehicle travels in front of another vehicle. These circumstances often contribute to motorcycle accidents that may occur due to a driver overlooking the smaller vehicle.

Such an accident recently took place in Florida. Reports stated that a motorcycle was heading east with two occupants and had a green light as it approached an intersection. A pickup truck that was traveling west also had a green light but attempted to make a left turn. This turn brought the truck into the motorcycle's path, and a collision resulted. The individuals on the motorcycle were both reported as being 19 years old, and the driver of the pickup was 52 years old.
