Florida car accidents: 2 injured, 1 dead in recent crash

There can be any number of factors that could lead to motor vehicle crashes on the road. As cautious as Florida drivers may be, collisions can still happen. When car accidents occur, those involved could suffer serious injuries in addition to having to deal with potential property damage. One woman died and another was severely injured in a recent highway accident. The driver believed responsible for the accident was hurt as well.

Two women were traveling westbound on a local highway when the collision occurred. A truck driver was headed east. The driver of the truck was in the process of navigating a left-hand curve when he overcorrected and veered into the path of the victims' vehicle. 

The victims' car was struck on the right side. Both women suffered serious injuries. Tragically, the passenger in the SUV succumbed to her injuries and died at the scene. The truck driver was also injured and both he and the driver of the SUV were taken to an area hospital.

The victim who was injured may consider filing a personal injury claim against the truck driver. If her claim is successful, she could receive monetary damages that could help cover the cost of her medical bills and any other expenses related to the wreck. Similarly, the family of the deceased victim may be able to file a wrongful death claim. Any Florida residents who have been injured or lost loved ones in car accidents may consult experienced personal injury attorneys to learn more about the different types of claims they may be able to pursue.
