Deadly Auto Accidents in Florida
According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), there are over 400,000 collisions that take place on Florida highways each year, with the Tampa region seeing somewhere between 25,000 and 30,000 of those collisions. Luckily, the majority of these collisions are relatively harmless fender benders that do not result in severe or fatal casualties.
When another person causes the death of another via their carelessness or recklessness, this is known as wrongful death. This kind of carelessness might be the consequence of the actions of a third party, such as in a vehicle accident, or it can be the result of the actions of a business, such as when a defective medicine results in a fatality. If a person or company is negligent and causes the death of a family member or spouse, the surviving family members or spouse may be entitled to monetary compensation in the form of damages.
