CHILD SUCCUMBS TO PERSONAL INJURY IN TRAGIC FLORIDA CRASH

CHILD SUCCUMBS TO PERSONAL INJURY IN TRAGIC FLORIDA CRASH 150 150 Panter, Panter & Sampedro

When motor vehicles traveling on a Florida highway collide, the results are often devastating. A victim may suffer serious personal injury or, in worst cases, die upon impact in an accident. When that person is a minor, a parent or legal guardian may take legal action against the motorist deemed responsible for the crash.

A recent incident involved three separate vehicles. Two of the cars were apparently heading southbound when a vehicle from the northbound direction drifted into their lane. The vehicle that allegedly veered into the southbound lane is said to have crashed head-on into one of the other two cars.

That same vehicle then reportedly hit the second car; all three vehicles careened off the road upon impact. There were several children riding in the various vehicles at the time of the accidents. Sadly, one of them, a 6-year-old boy, succumbed to his injuries after being taken to the hospital for emergency treatment.

An operations chief from the Gainesville Fire Rescue Department stated that the impact in a head-on crash is double that of hitting a stationary object in an accident. Any parent who has suffered the tragic loss of a child in a Florida car accident may seek consultation with a personal injury lawyer to discuss the process of filing a wrongful death claim in a civil court. While no amount of compensation can replace the life of a son or daughter, it may help grief-stricken parents to know that monetary recovery can be used to help with regard to funeral expenses and other financial and emotional losses associated with an accident.
