Crash on Florida Turnpike Kills Family
In early September, a devastating crash on the Florida turnpike killed three people. A 24-year-old driver in a Mercedes SUV struck a southbound Nissan Maxima in the early morning hours at mile marker 286, according to authorities. The driver had a suspended license for reasons currently under investigation. Both cars were flipped onto their sides and caught fire, and the Nissan’s male driver and female passenger, died on the scene, while an infant was thrown from the vehicle and died at Arnold Palmer Children’s Hospital. The driver of the Mercedes only suffered minor injuries.
Horrifying accidents like this leave the families of the victims feeling not only incredibly saddened by loss, but sometimes feeling helpless as well. What sort of justice is available for families who have lost loved ones in motor vehicle accidents? Florida accident attorney James O. Cunningham has been working with families of accident victims for more than 30 years, and has dedicated his life to helping families receive justice and compensation for their losses.
While no amount of money can ease the loss of a family member, it can help pay for funeral costs, taking care of the deceased’s assets, hospital and ambulance costs, and loss of wages if a family member was dependent on them. Especially in a case like this one, where the driver of the SUV already faced multiple charges for texting while driving, speeding, possession of methamphetamine, and resisting an officer, family members of the victim’s could be entitled to compensation.
