Deadly Hit-&-Run Accidents in Florida

Treasure Island, FL - Update: John Dennelly Charges in Fatal Hit-&-Run on Gulf BlvdIn recent years, the number of fatal hit-and-run accidents has increased nationwide to all-time highs. In Florida, there were 4,554 drunk driving accidents and 92,247 hit-and-run instances in 2020. Drivers who leave the scene of an accident should be prosecuted for their crimes. In some cases, the at-fault party can be found by authorities, and charges can be filed against them. 

The untimely passing of a loved one is among life’s most terrible and agonizing events. It is likely that during that time, you may feel some anxiety in addition to your sadness over their departure. When a family member dies, the surviving family members almost always have to deal with the financial and emotional fallout. This is especially true if the dead person served as the family’s primary caregiver or breadwinner. To cover a gap that they had not anticipated, the family members were forced to move quickly.

There is a gap left in your life when a family member is tragically stolen from you. It’s likely that your financial position will spiral out of control when you attempt to make up for the money and services that your loved one provided your family during this trying period. Although pursuing a Florida wrongful death claim won’t be able to compensate you for the loss of a loved one, there is still a potential that you will qualify for financial aid that will help you resume your normal life.
