Car accident claims life of Palm Beach woman

Heading out for a morning walk is a relaxing and health activity many Americans do on a daily basis. The vast majority of the time, these walks are pleasant and go without incident. However, a recent car accident serves as a stark reminder that life can be taken away in an instant; especially when motor vehicles are involved.

The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) reported that an elderly woman was killed in Palm Beach after being hit by a car while attempting to cross the road in the early morning. The driver of the car was traveling westbound and, according to the FHP accident report, said he didn't see the elderly woman as she was crossing. The victim was first taken to Lawnwood Regional Medical Center before she was declared dead.

The accident is still being investigated by the FHP and there was no indication of the influence of alcohol, but there may be grounds to seek compensation. Clearly, there was something amiss with the driver of the car, whether or not drugs and alcohol were the cause. When a motorist fails to see a pedestrian and causes an accident that claims a life, the root of the issue should be unearthed. Depending on the circumstances, the family of the deceased woman could potentially pursue compensation for their loss. Funeral expenses and possible other damages could be sought through legal action.

Nothing can replace the life of a loved one. When someone is taken away due to the negligence of another person, however, justice should be served. Seeking the assistance of an experienced attorney can help those in such situations to proceed with a solid plan of legal action.
