Deadly Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
In car accidents in Florida, pedestrians are more likely to suffer injuries or lose their lives. In Florida, there were more than 6,000 pedestrian fatalities caused by being struck by an automobile between 2010 and 2019. There have been an increasing number of incidents involving injured pedestrians since the year 2019.
The legal phrase for when someone dies as a direct result of the excessive negligence or carelessness of another person is wrongful death. One of the saddest consequences for family members is a wrongful death suffered at the hands of a negligent party as these incidents are often avoidable. The at-fault party should be held responsible for their role in a deadly accident.
In the case that someone is killed as a result of another person’s carelessness or negligence, the victim’s family and beneficiaries may bring a wrongful death claim to get compensation from the at-fault party. The loss of a loved one cannot be made up for by money or anything else. Our wrongful death attorneys have seen, however, that wrongful death compensation can significantly aid bereaved families in finding comfort and regaining their financial stability following the loss of a family member, especially one who supported the family prior to their passing.
You and your family may be entitled to compensation if a member of your family died as a result of someone else’s negligence. With the help of a Sarasota wrongful death accident lawyer, you can submit a claim to hold the responsible party accountable.
