There are many cars on the roads in Florida every day. People need to drive for a variety of reasons and due to the volume of cars on the roads, accidents occur. Some of these accidents are unfortunately fatal accidents. When a person dies unexpectedly, it is very devastating for the victim's family and friends. It can be devastating both emotionally and financially especially if the victim earned the primary income for the family.
Police say that a person driving a silver BMW hit a pedestrian walking on a crosswalk in Florida. The car was travelling at a high rate of speed when it hit the victim. The driver fled on foot after the accident and the police are looking for him. Three passengers in the vehicle did stay to speak with police.
If another person's negligence causes a pedestrian accident, the victim's family may be able to seek compensation from the person who caused the accident or from that person's insurance company. Losing a primary income can make it very difficult to simply pay bills and live day to day life. The compensation will not bring the victim back, but it can be very valuable so the family does not need to worry about the financial loss.
Unfortunately, many people in Florida die in fatal accidents each year. These sudden deaths leave huge voids in the lives of the family and friends of the victim. While nothing can bring the victim back, the families of the victims may be able to obtain compensation from the person who caused the death. Experienced attorneys understand the devastation of losing a loved and may be able to help a family put the pieces back together.
