Fatal car accidents could lead to claims against estates

In the event that a person considered at fault for a car crash dies in the incident, many individuals may think that they do not have the opportunity to seek compensation for damages resulting from the incident. However, many car accidents have such outcomes, and surviving parties who were seriously injured in the crash or families of other victims could still pursue reparations. In such cases, these parties could file claims against the estate of the driver deemed responsible.

One individual may be considering this option after a recent Florida crash. Reports stated that the incident occurred on U.S. 301 when the driver of an SUV heading south attempted to make a left turn. However, this individual did not yield to another vehicle that was traveling north. As a result, a crash took place.

The SUV went into the air, flipped and hit a sign and a pole before coming to a stop. The driver of that vehicle suffered fatal injuries as a result. The other car came to a stop on the side of the roadway after the vehicle began to spin. That driver suffered serious injuries and was taken from the scene for treatment at an area hospital.

Due to the outcomes of this incident, the surviving individual may want to look into the process for filing a personal injury claim against the estate of the driver considered at fault. This information could help him -- as well as other parties who have been in car accidents with similar outcomes -- determine whether this type of action could suit his needs. Utilizing reliable Florida legal resources may be in his best interests.
