Fatal Pedestrian Accidents in Florida
Pedestrians are more likely to sustain injuries or pass away in car accidents in Florida. In Florida, there were over 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.
When someone is killed due to someone else’s carelessness or negligence, their family and beneficiaries may file a legal case known as a wrongful death claim, seeking compensation from the murderer for their losses. Money or anything else cannot compensate for the death of a loved one. However, following the loss of a family member who provided for the family, our skilled wrongful death attorneys have seen that wrongful death compensation may help grieving Florida families find solace and restore their financial stability.
One of the most challenging situations a person may have in their lives is the untimely death of a loved one. When an accident results in the death of a family member and the loss was unexpected and maybe avoidable, it may be immensely devastating for those who are left behind. It’s probable that the victim’s family members, beneficiaries, and other close family and friends may be filled with concerns and inquiries about how the loss of their loved one will affect their future.
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 assistance of a Tampa pedestrian crash attorney, you may submit a claim to have the party responsible for the related costs pay for them.
