Wrongful death claims could help Florida families find closure

Car accidents are an unfortunate reality that Florida drivers must face each day. Some crashes only result in trivial damage, whether physical or emotional. However, in addition to property damage, others can lead to serious injuries or even fatalities. When people are killed in severe collisions, victims' families may seek reparations by filing a wrongful death claim in civil court.

The accident occurred on a local highway in Polk County and involved a northbound SUV and a southbound car. For unknown reasons, the driver of the SUV crossed over the grassy median and into the southbound lane. The SUV then crashed into the car. Police advised motorists to avoid the area due to the severity of the collision.

The driver of the SUV died at the scene, as did a passenger in the other car. The driver of the car, his other passenger and the passenger in the SUV all sustained serious injuries. The three of them were taken to a local hospital for treatment, and authorities report that the SUV passenger is currently in stable condition.

Because of the severity of this crash, the victim's family may consider consulting an attorney to file a wrongful death claim against the driver of the SUV. If their lawsuit is successful, they could then be awarded monetary damages to help pay for funeral costs or any other expenses related to the accident. Any Florida families who have lost loved ones in similar accidents may also benefit from working with an experienced personal injury attorney to file a claim.
