Auto accidents in Florida often result in fatalities

There are many factors that can lead to roadway collisions in Florida. Though many drivers carefully follow the rules of the road, mistakes can still happen that result in the frequent occurrence of auto accidents. One recent accident that caused the death of two people and injured several others is still under investigation.

The incident happened on a local highway on March 21. Investigators say that the crash occurred when the driver of an SUV heading northbound left his lane, crossed the grassy median and struck a car headed south. It is currently unknown what caused the driver of the SUV to leave his side of the road. Police have not released any other details of the collision.

Reports indicate that one passenger in the car that was struck and the driver of the SUV both died at the scene. The driver of the car and his second passenger suffered critical injuries and were both transported to the hospital. A passenger in the SUV was also taken to the hospital for her injuries and is currently in stable condition.

Though the incident is still under investigation, those that were injured could file a personal injury claim and receive monetary compensation if they successfully prove that the driver of the SUV was negligent. Likewise, the family of the deceased victim could file a wrongful death claim. An experienced personal injury attorney could help any Florida residents injured in auto accidents throughout the process of filing similar claims in the civil court system.
