Underage Pensacola Driver Killed In Crash

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on March 26, 2015

On Monday, March 23, a teen motorist was killed in a single-car crash in Pensacola. The driver drifted onto the shoulder of the road and his vehicle collided with a utility pole, where the force of impact caused the vehicle to roll and eject the driver from the vehicle. The driver was only 15-years-old.

It is heartbreaking that a young boy was killed, and also a scary reminder that we never know who is on the road around us. Luckily, no one else was injured in this accident, but car accidents happen daily around Florida for a number of reasons, from drunk drivers to inattentive and inexperienced drivers.

If you are injured in a Florida auto accident and believe you deserve compensation, the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham can assist you. Attorney James Cunningham has been working as a personal injury lawyer for more than 30 years, and has seen a range of cases dealing with every type of accident imaginable.

Protecting Yourself After an Accident

A 15-year-old driver shouldn’t be on the road, just like drunk drivers shouldn’t be on the road, and people shouldn’t text and drive. Unfortunately, we can’t ensure that these scenarios don’t exist, but we can do everything possible to protect ourselves afterward with experienced legal help.

According to the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles, there are more than 200,000 traffic accidents each year in Florida, with numbers reaching close to 250,000. Most of these are car accidents, which actually rose 23.4 percent between 2011 and 2012 – though truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents are also common. The DMV says that many of these accidents are caused by a driver who broke traffic laws, and with more than 16 million drivers in the state of Florida, there will always be a high risk of someone breaking a traffic law.

If you are a victim of one of these accidents, call attorney James O. Cunningham today. He has been working with car accident victims since 1977 to help them obtain the compensation they deserve for medical bills, medicine, lost wages, personal trauma, vehicle damage, and more.
