Alcohol-Related Car Accident
Orlando personal injury lawyer James O. Cunningham has seen Orange County and the rest of our state change in many ways since he began practicing law in 1977. Some changes have been for the better, and others have been decidedly for the worse. Our state’s auto accident statistics would definitely fall in the latter category.

A WBBH Channel 2 report describes a car accident that claimed the lives of two nuns from Saint Andrew Catholic Church in Cape Coral. According to law enforcement officials investigating the accident, it occurred sometime on the afternoon of September 27, 2009 near US 41 and Gran Via Trail. Police say that a 60-year-old North Fort Myers man who attempted to make a left turn onto Gran Via Trail against a red light caused the auto accident.
