No matter the age of a loved one, an unexpected death is difficult to cope with the aftermath. It is especially difficult to handle the loss when a deceased loved one may have still been young. When a premature death occurs as a result of the negligence of another individual, a family may choose to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Recently, a family suffered their own unexpected loss following a three-vehicle crash in Florida.
A Florida community is grieving the loss of long-time resident. A tragic accident with a city dump truck resulted in serious injuries to one woman, which she did not survive. Depending on the details and evidence collected, it may be a case of wrongful death.
Right now, the future is bright for many high school graduates, and the future for most students is yet to be determined. For three Florida teenagers, their future may be limited. All three face serious felony charges after a mother and daughter died following an impromptu street race. In addition to criminal charges, they are also at risk of being held liable for the deaths in civil court if family members decide to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
Families usually need some sort of closure when a loved one dies due to the negligence of another. Florida personal injury attorneys are often able to help assist a family to find closure through a wrongful death lawsuit in civil court. Lawsuits do not change the circumstances of grief, but the offer of legal recourse is sometimes comforting to victims by holding culpable parties fully accountable for negligence. Sadly, a recent crash has left a family without a mother and two other family members injured.
Birth and death are undeniably some of life's most expensive events. When someone dies, multiple decisions have to be made in a short amount of time while shock and grief are part of the equation. Following a funeral, many families suffer the aftermath of unexpected financial stress. One family from another state recently suffered the wrongful death of their mother and became stranded in Florida for weeks due to a depletion of funds following her funeral.
Construction zones on Florida roadways can be confusing and difficult to navigate, especially at night. Typically, drivers are cautioned with signs, lights and cones to slow down and drive carefully. Although the work must be completed while vehicles continue to travel the roadways, the workers have a responsibility to make the area as safe as possible. If safety is compromised, accidents, serious injuries and/or death can occur. Sadly, a wrongful death may have recently occurred on a Florida roadway when a mother and daughter were killed in a construction zone crash.
