Fatal car accidents may present cause for legal action in Florida

A serious crash recently took place in Florida that resulted in the death of one person. Like many car accidents, this incident took place at an intersection, and it also involved three vehicles. Reports stated that one vehicle was heading west, a second vehicle was traveling north and the third was headed south. The woman driving west failed to stop at a stop sign when all three vehicles came to the intersection.

The woman's vehicle collided with the vehicle traveling north, and the impact caused both cars to rotate. The second vehicle then hit the southbound pickup truck. That collision caused the second vehicle to fly into the air and then land on top of the woman's car. It was unclear exactly how many individuals were in each vehicle at the time of the incident.

The 49-year-old man driving the second vehicle was transported from the scene, but he succumbed to the injuries he suffered. Additionally, a passenger in his vehicle was considered to be in critical condition. The driver of the pickup truck suffered only minor injuries, and the woman driving the first car was not injured.

Due to the conditions of this incident, the family of the deceased victim may wish to file a wrongful death claim against the driver considered at fault. This type of action could allow them -- and other families similarly affected by car accidents -- to seek compensation for damages permitted under Florida law. Furthermore, the passenger who suffered serious injuries could also potentially file a personal injury claim if she sees fit.
