Fatal Car Accidents in Florida
Each year, there are approximately 3,000 people killed in Florida car accidents. This number places our state among the most dangerous places in the nation for motorists. Sadly, many of these accident victims will lose their lives in crashes that are not their fault. The overwhelming majority of car accidents in Florida are caused by the actions of negligent drivers. These accidents are caused by drivers who are speeding, distracted, impaired, or otherwise driving in a reckless manner. The cause of each crash must be carefully investigated in order to determine the cause and who should be held responsible.
Certainly, there is nothing more devastating than the sudden loss of a family member due to a Florida traffic accident. During this time, your focus should rightfully be on your family and moving forward following a sudden tragedy. The last thing you should have to worry about is a legal case. Fortunately, there is help available. Under Florida law, the deceased victim’s next-of-kin or legal representative has the ability to file a wrongful death claim in order to recover valuable compensation.
