DJ Luis Borges Killed in Orlando Crash

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on September 1, 2015

On the last Sunday in August, the very popular Venezuelan DJ Luis Borges was killed in a car crash in Orlando. Borges, who was on vacation in Orlando, was walking along Lake Street near Ruby Lake Road, when a BMW sport-utility vehicle hit him. Since his death, there has been an outpouring of grief and memories for the Grammy nominee on social media.

Borges’ tragic death is proof that reckless driving and pedestrian accidents can hurt anyone when you least expect it. In Orlando, tourists are often the victims of accidents.

Last year, 57 million people visited Orlando as tourists, setting a third-consecutive record high according to the visitor’s bureau. Because of the high volume of tourists, there is an increased number of tourists involved in accidents. Tourists are often the victims and cause of pedestrian accidents, as sometimes they are lost and not paying attention to the road, or aren’t aware of notoriously dangerous intersections.

Being involved in or having a family member involved in an accident is the last possible thing you want to happen on vacation. In a new city, you aren’t able to see your normal doctor, and there can sometimes be issues with insurance or even language barriers.

The Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A. have been working with accident victim visitors to Orlando for more than 30 years. Since 1977, attorney Cunningham has made it his mission to get pedestrian accident victims the compensation they deserve, whether they’re from Orlando or from outside of the city or state.

If you are involved in a pedestrian accident, you could suffer injuries ranging from concussion and bruises, to severe brain trauma and spinal cord injury. You are entitled to compensation not only for your initial medical bills, but also for ongoing medication, recovery, lost wages, and more. If a loved one has been killed in a pedestrian accident while visiting Orlando, family is also entitled to compensation.

An accident while on vacation is a terrible scenario, but James O. Cunningham and his staff can make it less painful. Call 877-FL-INJURY (877-354-6587) today for a free consultation.
