Deadly Car Crashes in Florida
Traffic collisions are the leading cause of injury in Florida. In 2017, 37,133 people were killed in car accidents in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. According to studies, only Texas and California had more lethal collisions and risky roads. Florida has the third-highest rate of road fatalities in the nation.
When a loved one dies as a consequence of someone else’s negligence or neglect, it is usually a result of a tragic accident. Unexpected expenses and other consequences are usual for the family of a deceased individual. The victim’s family often expresses frustration and powerlessness. Their feeling of betrayal is heightened by the possibility that their financial condition would swiftly deteriorate. It’s reasonable that surviving family members desire to file a wrongful death claim with the help of a pedestrian accident lawyer in order to hold those who caused their loved one’s death accountable.
