Fatal Accidents in Florida
Florida sees more fatal collisions than many other states throughout the U.S. due to the fact that there are more drivers on our roads. In fact, according to data released by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles in 2013, over 15 million licensed drivers were traveling the roads in 2013 within the state of Florida. In 2011 alone, over 2,400 people lost their lives due to these accidents, with these numbers increasing each year. Losing a loved one can bring hardship to a family and friends of the loved one, which is why it is important for them to be prepared.
Fatal collisions happen unexpectedly in Florida for many reasons. In the blink of an eye, a life could be unexpected and wrongfully taken due to aspects like distracted driving, intoxication, speeding, fatigue, and many other related reasons. If you believe that another party is responsible for a Florida car accident that led to the fatality of a loved one, you must be able to show through your personal injury claim that there is evidence pointing toward this. All drivers are expected to abide by a degree of care. If you have lost a loved one and believe that another party was acting under the degree of care expected of them, you may have the right to bring a wrongful death claim.
