Driver Runs Red Light, Causes Multi-Vehicle Accident in Orange County

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on July 27, 2017

The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) is looking for a woman accused of causing a multiple vehicle crash last weekend in Orange County, Florida. According to the FHP, the 50 year old female from Apopka was driving her Chevrolet Avalanche south on Hiawassee Road when she ran a red light located at the intersection of Balboa Drive. As she ran through the intersection, she crashed into the side of an SUV driven by a female driver and heading east on Balboa Drive. This collision then caused a chain reaction, with the SUV veering into a Chrysler driven by a 31 year old male who was in the northbound lanes of Hiawassee Road.

According to the FHP, luckily nobody was injured in the accident. However, that does not mean that those involved in the accident shouldn’t seek medical attention. Regardless of whether or not you think you are injured or not, the number one rule in any Orlando car accident is always seek medical attention. This is important because many common car accident related injuries, such as whiplash, do not manifest themselves for days or even weeks after the accident.

Let’s say that a week after a minor accident you start developing pain in your neck. As time goes on, this pain increases, eventually causing you to miss work and have difficulty performing everyday tasks. For treatment, you go to the doctor, who then recommends physical therapy. After weeks of therapy you still feel pain, so the doctor refers you to a surgeon. Meanwhile, your medical bills keep adding up.

According to Florida law, you have the legal right to seek compensation for your injuries and related costs if they were caused by the car accident. However, the defendant will likely argue that your injuries were either pre-existing or caused by something else. After all, there is no medical record after the accident indicating that you were injured. If only you had gone immediately to the doctor…

To ensure you get the compensation you deserve, always seek medical attention. After that, contact your Orlando personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A.
